Network 23 is a weird and wonderful take on Cyberpunk
The future has been cancelled.
Pirate utopias face off against the autocratic power of titanic hyper-technologic Citadels, endlessly built by self-replicant and self-repairing automatons.
Solar towers and biomass generators sporadically flare-up in the boundless Off-grid: a melting pot of drifters and revolutionaries, cargo cults and acid communes, plowed by slavers’ convoys and tekno tribes.
Obsolete and futuristic technologies coexist next to each other: neural headsets for accessing K-space and organic 3d printers. Punch cards and second-hand cyber limbs. Wars are fought with laser weapons and plasma cutters, on radio frequencies as well as on Arpanet nodes.
Tears in reality overlook the ever-changing xenoscapes of the Interzone, lost in its folds are hidden forgotten civilizations, alien technology and inorganic demons.
The centralized consumer society has fallen under its own weight following the Black Monday stock market crash of 1987 and the Black Friday revolution of 1989.
There’s no map yet for these territories.
Utopia and dystopia face each other in a clash of civilizations, while entropy flows undisturbed.
Thoughts matter: Technonikilist or Algomaster? Insurrectionist or electric sheep? Mercenary or merchant? Founder or destroyer?
The truce is over, the hunt is on!
Join the revolution, or the destruction.

WE DO NOT HOLD ITEMS
Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now.
Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible.
All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order.
We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders.
Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
