Canary Overdrive

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

It’s the year 2247. London. The once proud government of the United Kingdom is nothing more than a puppet for the megacorps and the monarchy is a hazy memory.

In this world, information is everything and corporations will kill to get their hands on it. They employ hackers, security and assassins to do their dirty work. But by far the most deadly are the Canaries - cybernetically-enhanced warriors adept at the art of killing.

These are the Corp Wars. You are on the front line.

Canary Overdrive is a fast-paced game of cyberpunk action for three or more players featuring a simple, newbie-friendly system. Players are the Canaries - ultra-soldiers with integrated cybernetic enhancements, making them faster, stronger and more intelligent than a regular human. Canaries are guns for hire and are used by corporations and private individuals to do jobs including subterfuge, espionage, theft and assassination.

Is it right that Body and Mind are just either +1 or -1? It seems that with a 2d6 resolution system, that means they don't make a massive difference (even accounting for the fact that rolling 8+ is signficantly less likely than rolling 6+) and it's left largely up to the luck of the dice.

I happened upon this game last night. Never heard of it before. I looked at the character sheet and saw that it was extremely sparse as far as stats go. I was wondering if there is any reviews of this game to show how this game is played? I would like to see an overview of this system in action, if possible.

Hey Benjamin. Thanks for your comment. Canary Overdrive was made to be a quick pick-up-and-play game that focuses on action and thrills over stats. I haven't seen any reviews yet (not written, anyway), but why not be the first to do it? :)

Original electronic
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.
