Android: Netrunner Is Turning The Popular Card Game On Its Head
You probably haven't seen Netrunner like this before.
Android: Netrunner is a supremely popular card game that's got so many people up in arms about it, but surprisingly I've never given it a try. That could be about to change with the announcement that Netrunner is making its debut on mobile devices. Of course, it's going to be a very different game this time around. It's going to be an RPG instead of a card game.
So that's a little crazy, but nothing unheard of. People will still likely flock to the new version of Netrunner, because it's chock-full of bizarre cyberpunk craziness. Basically, mega corporations are in control of humanity in Netrunner, and one player is tasked with helping the corporations and the other is trying to stop the corporations.
It's an interesting twist on the roles players are usually given in games like these, and the art styles are varied and unusual. It'll be fun to check out this iteration when it finally releases next year. By that time, you might be able to actually play the real card game to see how different the RPG is to this version.
