By lenrussell, in The Worlds of Android

I'm a William Gibson. Neal Stephenson (Snow Crash), Bladerunner fan from way back.

I enjoyed Cyberpunk 2020 RPG series from R Talsorian, and similar rule systems from Steve Jackson Games.

I played the original Netrunner game from WotC back in the late 1990's.

I was pleased to see FFG pick up on this and breath new life into it, along with the creation of Android.

I enjoy the blog entries and videos with the designers.

I've read the half-dozen fiction books written in the Android universe and enjoyed them for the flavor - if not the plot & characterization.

So when The Worlds of Android was announced it especially caught my interest.

But it's impossible to obtain a copy.

My local retailer - Game Empire in Pasadena CA - ordered 2 copies that sold out immediately.

It's not available anywhere on Amazon.

Nor does FFG have in stock.

Why is this?

What a disappointment.

They need to sell the PDF on DriveThruRPG. It would always be available then.

Basically, they understimated the demand and it went out fast. Right now it's being reprinted.
