This time around, three modes of play are available: solo mode, cooperative mode, and skirmish mode in which players assemble their teams. Each player striving to achieve their own hidden agenda. In addition, special pre-made scenarios with non-linear plotting that branch out depending on players choice make for a nice treat for those looking for deeper immersion!
Es gibt drei recht umfangreiche Pledgelevel:
Board and miniatures
A meticulously designed board makes for an immersive experience in a dystopian world of the near future. Evocative illustrations depict hallways, offices, and clandestine corporate laboratories. All of excellent quality to please your senses as you play the game. All components are compatible with the previous game, Human Interface Nakamura Tower. Human Interface: Be a Better Human contains a collection of awesome, unique-looking miniatures. The plastic models (as well as metal models found in the collector’s edition) have been sculpted with an eye for detail and a modern cyberpunk flair. The sheer variety of characters coupled with the quality of casts will satisfy both those looking for cyberpunk-inspired models and discerning collectors and painters. If you’re familiar with CMoN or Monolith products, the quality of our miniatures will be similar to those, and we’ll do our utmost to exceed even that! Models are in the common 32 mm scale and compatible with other popular ranges.
Game mechanics are based on revised Human Interface Nakamura Tower rules. With the aid of players, the rules have been reworked to be even more clear and easy to grasp. The game flows in turns, with the heroes making their way across the board, using special abilities, and fighting in the net. In the final phase, the OPFOR forces governed by AI algorithms make efforts to impede the players’ progress. A key part of the game is network combat resolved with the use of cards representing combat software. Achieving superiority in this phase will greatly impact the real world. Heroes in Be a Better Human have been divided into classes, granting them access to a wide range of equipment, weapons, and unique abilities. Only a well-put team of heroes with complementary skills can hope to complete the objectives before them!
- Skirmish mode allows you to build a team from any combination of available characters. Random objectives make each game unpredictable!
- Pick a hero with distinct skills and appearance. Universal character cards describe the hero’s base attributes and allow to easily track their progress.
- Gain extra abilities through cybernetic implants and weapons. Weapon and equipment cards allow you to configure your gear to best tackle the mission.
- Put together the optimal configuration of combat soft to do battle in the net. During network combat, cyberwarfare cards represent offensive and defensive programs as well as viruses and traps to overcome.
It wouldn’t be cyberpunk without epic feats worthy of legends. Successful battle actions and hacking generate adrenaline points. Accumulate enough and unleash extraordinary abilities! But watch out, unused adrenaline may cause a temporary loss of control, making the character perform a spectacular action, though not necessarily the one you’d expect…
No dice are used in the game. Instead, we’ve devised a card system with numerical values and conditional actions. The card’s value isn’t it anymore, it may be worthwhile to swap it for an unexpected effect. Are you ready to make the call?
Story mode campaign
The box includes a separate booklet with a number of scenarios chaining together for a story-driven campaign. Based on your choices, the outcome of the story will vary… After each scenario, depending on its course and results, you are given points to advance your character or purchase better gear. Can you uncover the inconvenient truth concealed by the corporation? It’s all in your hands now…
The game contains rules for assembling a team of heroes and handling random mission cards. This allows you to face up to unpredictable challenges without playing out the entire campaign. Additionally, each player draws their own objective, kept hidden from the others. While the team at large aim to complete a shared mission, it might be that in their ranks lurks a traitor, whose individual objective is to foil the team. In fact, the traitor may be more than one…
