Genuine masterpiece of a game, simple mechanics, great CC, amazing setting and story potential, and so much ground to homebrew. This is the definitive TTRPG for running games about being robots or machines hands down. [...]

Honestly, this game was adorable. My first robot was a little delivery robot that just wanted to deliver packages and make people smile, but nobody was left sending mail. The idea of the world was both grim yet charming too, and the party i played with [...]

I had acceidently built my first character so that they would be imobile outside of a kitchen, so the group had to drag my character around for the whole campaign. The hypest moment in the whole game was when I realized I could overclock my robot in or [...]

Absolutely excellent. This game shows just how to beat the ever annoying "Save the world, up the ante" roleplay that most RPGs fall into, with a refreshingly unique dice system, and simple rules. [...]

Years ago I stumbled upon this little game. It's a cute game that basically seeks to be WALL-E, but can be so much more. The rules are the simple and the gameplay is memorable. I'll always cheerish the memories this game has brought me. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
