Description

Decker is basically a simulation of the online cyberhacker "matrix run" aspect of Shadowrun Pen & Paper games... Using the established rules from the game, Decker provides you with a graphical representation and gameplay of a Matrix run. Bypass tough security programs, scan through data archives, Infiltrate the CPU and begin a system crash. You'll need your wits, your hardware and your software about you to come out of decker with your synapses intact.

Trivia

References

  • Whenever you disconnect from a system in cyberspace, a sound effect saying "End of line" is heard. The sound effect is borrowed from the seminal science-fiction movie Tron, in which that phrase was spoken by the Master Control Program.
  • Many of the company names in Decker have been "borrowed" from William Gibson's Neuromancer or from the popular Pen-and-Paper RPG Shadowrun.

Rules

the game system has many similarities to the first version of Shadowrun's Decking rules, which were used in both the First and Second Edition of the RPG (totally new Decking rules were instituted for future editions of that RPG).
