Cyber Settings are all around us and in all of our favorite game systems. This Fudge-Compatible system is no exception, and with Psi-Punk, the setting is brought to a new realm of gamers, that also include those who may have disabilities no matter how severe they are.

CONTENT

This 192 page book includes all of the Fudge-compatible rules needed to get started; no other reference material is required. In addition to the illustrated, bookmarked, and indexed book, they included a form-fillable character sheet so you can enter data electronically before printing. They also included a bonus short story set in the world of Psi-Punk to help set the tone for your adventures, and a sample adventure to kick-start your GM’s imagination. It is available now for the awesome price of $19.99 on DriveThruRPG.com and Accessible Game’s Website

OVERALL

Accessible Games has a reputation with working RPG’s into those who have severe disabilities and making the games more user friendly for all without making the player feel awkward for having a disability. I applaud their genuine efforts in creating a game that is tailored to those needs and for many it will bring much fun!

RATINGS

Publication Quality: 10 out of 10
Presentation of Layout: The presentation of the adventure is definitely of high quality! Layout is nice and clean and everything is readable. Would like a little more color, but that’s just me.

Ease of Mobility: The file is easy to navigate and read through. All E-reader users will have little to no problems getting it onto your tablet. However, the additional bonus features will not be accessible in E-book Format. The bookmarks are nice, and great if you plan on running it through your computer.

Mechanics: 10 out of 10
Mechanically, this book is sound. It’s a great way to get into the Fudge Dice System which has been gathering a steady following these past few years. I definitely had fun playing it as well with a few friends, and teaching them the Fudge system versus a lot of other systems that are out there. Mechanically, the longest part will be character creation, but granted, that’s usually how it works in most systems. Once you get going, it’s definitely a win in terms of game play mechanics.

Value Add: 9 out of 10
So here is my thing… It adds a lot of great value, especially for those who are looking into getting into a Cyberpunk setting without all the heavy rules systems. But the setting doesn’t do it for me. However, I am unfortunately biased on the grounds of that I am a HUGE Shadowrun fan. So while the book definitely is worth the purchase, if you are a Shadowrun fan, don’t expect the setting to be along the same themes or style. (But there’s nothing in the rules that say you can’t run an adventure from Shadowrun in Psi-Punk.)

Overall: 10 out of 10
If you are looking for a great cyber setting adventure using the Fudge System, Psi-Punk is a great game to turn to. Especially those who want to help your friends who are looking for a way into gaming, but fear their disabilities whatever they may be will be in the way. The setting may not be pleasing to all, but there’s nothing a little tweaking cannot fix. Get it, and get everyone (and I mean everyone) into gaming!
