Session 5: Shock

28 Oct
Shock: Social Science Fiction

Tuesday, November 1
6524 NE Flanders St.

Shock: Social Science Fiction by Joshua A. C. Newman is, according to their website: “a fiction game of culture and future shock. Based on the works of Bruce Sterling, Kim Stanley Robinson, Ursula K. LeGuin, and Philip K. Dick, the game pushes the players to make stories that matter to them — stories about politics, philosophy, love, and death.”All you will need – and everybody will need one – is an issue that makes you happy, sad, angry, excited, whatever. It needs to be something that resonates with you. This could be something from current events, a recent scientific discovery, or just about anything else. As long as it matters to you, it’s good.

If you enjoyed playing Bhaloidam, are curious about it, or simply have money shooting out of your ears (a serious problem, mind you), there’s still a little time left to support the game on Kickstarter!

The project is a mere $4000 from its $27,900 goal, and at the rate people are pledging, we think it’s got a chance!
