Corporations control everything, and it’s your fault.

You want to stop them; you’re not alone, but you need an edge. The edge is Headspace technology: your brain networked to the brains of the others in your cell, sharing your skills and hyper-competency… but that also includes your pain and trauma.

Headspace is a game about corporate espionage and dealing with shared emotional trauma in a dystopian, cyberpunk world. Alone, you don’t stand a chance. Together, you can overcome your demons.

This game includes:

  • 6 unique Operator types, each with their own potent skills.
  • Rules to cover the shared emotional trauma that exists within the Headspace.
  • GM rules and guidance on how to portray a corporate-controlled dystopian world, and how to challenge and threaten a group of hyper-competent Operators who can share their skills.

Headspace is inspired by the rules-light framework of Apocalypse World, The Sprawl, Monsterhearts, and Dungeon World.

Take the fight to the corporations. Change your world.

I bought the product and I'm pleased with it, but the file-size of the Adobe (.pdf) file is a touch too large. At 36 MB, it takes several seconds for the print to resolve on a new page in my tablet, and even on a desktop as I flip through the pages, the illustrations are late in appearing. For a book of this size maybe a 10-12 MB size might be more workable.

At the time of posting there is only a pdf option available. Are there plans of a physical copy in the future?

Indie Press Revolution has a few print editions left at this time for those who are looking for print+PDF.

Is there a possibility to get the Quickstarter by paying a few dollars?

My issue with re-releasing the quick start is that at this point the rules have changed a fair bit and lots of the playbooks have been modified, it certainly isn't the same product and I'm not really interesting in revising it as I'm full steam ahead on making the print edition at this point.

The Quickstart is, effectively, rolled into the book at this point. The Quickstart uses the Vancouver setting, which is included in the book, and its major device ("It All Went Sideways...") is just how you start your first session of play. There is, at this point, nothing in the Quickstart that *isnt* in the book.

Sorry about the 999.99 was a temporary measure to let me send a notification to backers before a public release of my first product. It's at the intended $10 price now.

That's... One heck of a price tag.

The current price is well above 800 EUR, that must be an mistake =)

Please check, thanks

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.
