I looked down at the victim’s body. We’d come a long way since the Dark Ages. We’d built a city on the moon. We’d constructed a gigantic elevator that stretched up into space. We’d colonized Mars and fought a war over it. But I couldn’t help feeling we were still burning witches at the stake. The cause of this latest trouble was easy to see - androids. Two companies, Haas-Bioroid and Jinteki, had invented two different types of artificial human within a year of each other. They’ve been selling them as cheap labor, and put a lot of people out of work. This didn’t sit well with the disenfranchised, so they formed a radical group, Human First, and went around smashing androids with sledgehammers. So there I was with a murder and a sick sense of dread. It might’ve seemed random, but I was starting to see a dangerous pattern. Things were about to get ugly. I could feel it.
Android is a board game of murder and conspiracy set in a dystopian future. Detectives travel between the city of New Angeles and moon colony Heinlein chasing down leads, calling in favors, and uncovering the sinister conspiracy beneath it all. The detectives must balance their pursuit of the murderer against their personal lives and their inner demons. Android’s innovative mechanics ensure that no two detectives play alike. Will you play as Louis Blaine, the crooked cop tormented by guilt and loss? Or will you take the role of Caprice Nisei, the psychic clone who struggles to retain her sanity while proving that she’s as human as anyone else? Whoever you choose to play, you’ve got just two weeks to solve the murder, uncover the conspiracy, and face your personal demons. Better get moving, detective.
Android is a game for 3-5 players and takes between 2-4 hours to play.
