Have you ever dreamed of a game where you scour the darkest, seediest corners of an over-populated, neon-saturated cyberpunk metropolis? Was that game a virtual board game with lots of deck building and dice rolling? Well, the good news is it might not be a dream after all. Spanish team Quantum Goose are working on a cyberpunk virtual tabletop game called Quantum Quest [official site] and it’s on Steam Concept now.
Quantum Quest draws a lot of inspiration from pop culture, particularly Akira, Bladerunner, and Heroquest. The story’s pretty vague at this point, but we do know it centers around three contract killers paid to do the bidding of the wealthy folk who inhabit the upper reaches of the city’s staggering towers.
Getting down to the nitty-gritty, the game is expected to play like a turn-based tabletop RPG, and will feature single and multiplayer modes, along with a level editor. Players manage an Action deck with cards representing weapons, items, and abilities. You’ll pair all of that card-shuffling with dice-rolls when its time to enter combat, rolling for hits, armor penetration, and damage. There’s a lot going on, but hopefully the computer will be able to take some of the load off.
Quantum Quest is now on Steam Concept, where you can take a look at the project, rate the game, and leave feedback for the developers.
