A Quick Survey about V.Next Episodes!
Breaking Radio Silence
Description
Release date: Spring 2016
V.Next is a 2D Episodic Cyberpunk Adventure game, combining adventure, stealth, and puzzles, released in multiple chapters, with a story that advances every week.

You play as Vivienne Denue, a recently imprisoned computer hacker set free on the streets of a darkly futuristic Seattle. Take revenge on corrupt corporations and fight for the underclass by manipulating circuitry, coding up new infiltration software, hacking servers, and sneaking past surveillance systems. You'll collude with Artificial Intelligence and rip through the city on your tricked out Cafe Racer, all before recharging the batteries on your Cyberspace Deck.

With a gritty retro visual style, V.Next will take you on an epic journey across nearly 20 episodes of adventure. Harkening back to the written works of William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and Bruce Sterling, with visual references to Blade Runner, Max Headroom, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and The Matrix, and a soundtrack by well known electronic bands (including an original score by musician Tom Shear of electronic band Assemblage 23), V.Next is a thrilling tale of electronic warfare, discovery, justice, and adventure that brings the best of 1990's cyberpunk to modern screens.

Key Features
  • Explore a futuristic Seattle in 2035, as a street smart, tech saavy hacker girl who bends circuitry and crafts software to take revenge on corrupt corporations and fight for the underclass.
  • Hack and build circuit boards with parts you steal and buy, then use electronic devices of your own creation to crack security systems or intercept communications.
  • Craft your own software from dozens of subroutines, and hack secure networks and servers in cyberspace with your own viruses and trojan horse programs.
  • Travel around town on your cafe racer motorcycle, or use other vehicles to explore different parts of the city.
  • Interact with dozens of richly developed characters, and change the course of the game with your skills of persuasion.
  • Upgrade your character with new cranial implants, new subroutines, new hardware, and new skills.
  • Uncover deeply intertwined plots among multiple corporations, criminal gangs, hackers, and Artifical Intelligence programs.
  • Play new story-based episodes as they are released every week, for nearly six months of gameplay.

Who Are We?
SyncBuildRun is a Seattle-based gaming startup, consisting of gaming and entertainment professionals, with dozens of shipped titles to our credit. We have two goals: First, build the best episodic games on the market, with frequent releases of narrative-driven content that will engage and excite our players. Second, embrace a progressive and inclusive attitude, tell stores and feature leading characters who are often overlooked by broader media.

To that end, we're proud to present V.Next as a game series about the power of women and their positive mastery of technology. We are looking to sidestep cliche stereotypes to help usher in human stories that respect women and salute the values they bring to leadership. We hope you enjoy what we're making and thank you in advance for your support to create this important, timely and groundbreaking game. We're excited to share this adventure with you, and hope you come along for the ride!
