The Fighting for the Future roleplaying game is a rules light game, designed to be easy to pick up and play even if you've never played before. It's also designed to be a GM-less game that doesn't use dice, being more about interactive facilitation and story building through gameplay. At the same time, the gamebook does provide extensive information on how to play the game both with and without game moderators, with or without dice as well as with tarot cards as plot and action drivers. The gamebook also comes with extensive world building information for those who get and play the game without reading the short story anthology. In addition, the gamebook somes with a sample mission to get players started!
Cyberpunk and Solarpunk
Cyberpunk and solarpunk are, in many ways, two parts of the same story. Cyberpunk is all about people surviving and fighting back in high-tech, low-life dystopias. Solarpunk is a more utopian subgenre of cyberpunk that tells stories of communities surviving, adapting to, and solving the climate crisis in decidedly post-dystopian worlds.
But the foundational aspect shared by both genres is people and communities fighting for a better future. The context around that struggle may be different from one genre to the next, but the fight—the struggle—is one and the same.
In this way, cyberpunk and solarpunk are sibling genres, and we feel like it couldn't make any more sense to pair the two into a single revolutionary game narrative.
