Welcome to the future. In the Android setting, our own world has seen great technological advancements—and yet, at the same time, it’s all too recognizable. The wealth gap between the “haves” and the “have nots” has deepened into an insurmountable abyss. Idealistic notions like personal privacy are a thing of the past. Bioroids and clones have achieved immense popularity as “labor solutions,” pushing humans around the world out of jobs.
Into this dynamic world, a central conflict is introduced. On one side, the monolithic megacorporations that rule the world in all but name. They have the money, the manpower, and the assets to make anything possible. Even the stars are no longer a limit, as humankind has expanded to Earth’s moon and to Mars. For a corp, the pursuit of the bottom line is everything.
These corps may seem unstoppable—but there are always those who are willing to take the fight to them. These cyber-criminals, known as runners, use custom-built rigs and homebrewed programs to hack into the corps’ most well-protected servers in search of secret agendas and valuable data. Some run for money, some to cause chaos, and some just for the thrill of testing themselves and their creations against the best.
The conflict between corp and runner lies at the heart of Android: Netrunner The Card Game—a Living Card Game® of cyber-crime for two players, set in a dystopian, cyberpunk future. Now, you have your best chance yet to get into the game—the Android: Netrunner Revised Core Set is now available at your local retailer!
