Cross-publishing thanks!
Hey, guys, I just noticed that Shock: is mentioned as a reference in Eclipse Phase. Thanks for the shout-out! Ours are the kinds of games that happily co-exist on the same players' shelves, with their shared thematic content and non-overlapping play. We're approaching the challenge from different directions, which is really cool.

You betcha. The posthuman vac workers in the _Shock_ fiction piece feel like something you might find in a possible future of the EP world. By the same token, one of these days I might have to try running an EP-world story using the _Shock_ mechanics. As well as being a cool game on its own, I think _Shock_ provides some really useful tools for developing plot ideas in any sci-fi game.

Hey, if you do that, let me know how it goes. I've been thinking about how to change systems while retaining color and characters to do different types of game within a consistent fiction.
