The Capital of the World | Manhattan 2185 by Ben Counter UNLOCKED! '100 Backer Playtest' announced!
"I'm walking here!" Welcome to Manhattan 2185
We've smashed £75000 and have UNLOCKED 'The Capital of the World | Manhattan 2185 by the legendary Ben Counter!
Where will you stand in the population of Manhattan, a playground for the social elites?
While the five boroughs of New York Megacity are filled with tens of millions of people, Manhattan island is home to a population that lives to serve the elites. From the pop star turned private showgirl entertaining them, to the former chemistry teacher now manufacturing and selling them illicit drugs, everyone lives to serve in Manhattan.
Let's not forget about the societal rejects who make the city's extensive sewer and subway systems their home. Down below the streets, you won't just find rodents, but bands of cyberpunks, CEO worshipping cultists, and murder-for-hire gangs. These people serve in a different way, as muscle, assassins, corporate spies, data thieves, and any other job you wouldn't want people on your official payroll to get caught up in.
The Capital of the World | Manhattan 2185 by Ben Counter will be included as a free PDF to all backers at every level. It's also available as a softcover add-on that you can get by just adding £20 to your current pledge!
We've had very enthusiastic cyberpunks asking us if we will be having any backer playtests, and we've always said YES! 100 Backers will get the chance to playtest the game before it's released! We hadn't decided how to pick these 100 backers, since you're all awesome, so we decided that the fairest way (I know, fair? Not very cyberpunk of us!) was to randomly choose 100 backers out of everyone who backed for a physical copy of Carbon 218
