Yes, but is it Art, a Demo Adventure for Flatpack


Have you heard anyone say that the future's not so bright, and thought, "But I have lightbulbs?" If so, Flatpack is the game for you! Until someone tells us otherwise, we're saying that Flatpack: Fix the Future is the first game in the smash Hyperoptimistic Postapocalyptic genre of gaming. Flatpack is a game about building a new society using pre-apocalypse technology that you don't always trust or understand, and solving terrible problems creatively. 

*Flatpack uses simple resolution mechanics made to be playable for anyone that can read. 

*Think IKEA, meets Civilization, meets Actraiser, meets Earthbound, in pen and paper game form! 

*Cooperative and tongue-in-cheek gameplay focused on puzzles, brainteasers, and play achievements.

We think you'll like our free standalone adventure. Take it into your fallout shelter. If you don't like it, after the apocalypse, we'll triple your money back!

You'll Need: A printout of the Conflict Cards (included). A printout of the One Page Rules (included). Enough character sheets (included) and pencils for each player, some way to read this booklet, one four sided die (d4,) two six sided dice (d6) and one eight sided die (d8.)

It was fun, let me start off with that. It ran quickly and easily and as the GM I had fun. I'm sure some of my friends had fun too. The first question I got was about violence (naturally) and I asked them to count how many combat oriented skills there [...]

Some really interesting ideas in this one. Rewarding the player that makes the best art work on the spot is just one of them. On the other hand, you will not learn to play the game from this adventure. Rules seem promising but are too confusing on such [...]

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.
