    New cyberpunk StoryNexus title - looking for alpha testers

    Hey,

    I've been working on a new game using StoryNexus (the Fallen London platform, if you know that - if you don't, it's an in-browser interactive story/role playing thing; think old school adventure game books). My game is similar-ish to Fallen London, but set in a new-future cyberpunk dystopia. It's pretty hard edged, definitely rated 18+.

    Anyway, it's still a way off complete, so I'm not really ready to share the link yet. However, I'd love to get some more alpha testers on board. It's pretty playable, but the usual alpha caveats apply - things are broken/incomplete, things may change (especially with your input), etc.

    Please let me know if you're interested and I'll PM you the link. Thanks!

    Still looking for alpha testers! There's been a lot of development since the post above, and feedback so far has been great. Just message me if you'd like to try it out.

    It grows and grows. We're building up a gritty little community.

    - Take drugs
    - Fight
    - Hire prostitutes
    - Build a home
    - Trade black market organs
    - Help people out
    - Become a vigilante
    - Or an assassin
    - Go to prison
    - Improve your body
    - And your mind
    - Grow catfish (yes, even catfish)

    I do love Fallen London, and I quite like Cyberpunk. Feel free to pm me, but I can't promise you much input at the moment. :)

    The game has grown massively since my last post. There isn't a massive need for testers any more, as we have quite a few now, but if anyone does want a slot, we may be able to squeeze you in. One big development is the first appearance of 100% original (i.e. not place holder) art for the game. This is all in-game stuff, not concept work. Meet Ann, Zane (her pimp) and some rather useful tools:

    At the risk of sounding overly critical, Zane's headshot doesn't seem to really match the art style that looks like it's building up - a photo vs. the comic-book-looking appearance of all the other pics.

    It's true; these aren't necessarily final final. Ann will definitely be brought up to the same level as Zane. Not sure about the objects yet. Thanks for the feedback!

    You went the other than I was expecting, but I think that gnarly, liney look is better for the theme

    Just a quick update: this is still very much an active project, and is working its way steadily towards public access. In the meantime, more testers would be very welcome!

    Whoa, it's been a while since I updated this thread! The game is still happening, and has spawned a collection of short stories and a board game as well.

    Got a little artwork action. There will be a Kickstarter for an illustrated collection of short fiction set in the game's world in the next couple of months.

    There's a fair bit going on with the project at the moment. One small thing is a new Twitter feed, featuring entirely in-game news. A radio station, straight from the slums:
