About a year ago I finished reading Ken MacLeod's "Newton's Wake" and found myself thinking, "Wouldn't it be cool to run/play a game in that setting with the PCs as explorers using the wormhole gates left behind by the hard take-off Singularity or braving the nanoswarm-infested ruins of Earth?" Turns out I don't have to wonder anymore, because Mr. Boyle, et al, have created that setting, and so much more. The list of fiction used as inspiration covers about 75% of my reading list over the last five years. Reading through the corebook it's like you've taken my favorite ideas from all the Transhuman/Singularity fiction I've read and combined them into a single, incredibly rich game setting. Bravo, I say. Ahem, I don't normally gush like that. :shy: Now I just need to find someone willing to GM it.
