In the Future, Survival Depends on the Latest Updates.

New version of Mandatory Upgrade: X Marks the Spot coming soon to PC & Mac.

As mentioned earlier on the Ironic Iconic Studios website, I’ve been working on a Unity port of Mandatory Upgrade: X Marks the Spot! It’s a new version of my award-winning cyberpunk mystery game that you’ll soon be able to download and play on your very own computer. I don’t have a ton of details to give you yet, except that it will feature some updates to the design of the game and new artwork by yours truly. Indeed, you may have already noticed the sneak peek at the new art style that I’ve included at the top of this very post. I hope you like it!

Stay tuned for further announcements as I get more info to share.

X Marks the Spot to be released on Story Worlds in the Spring of 2016

In the next few weeks I’ll be releasing an interactive cyberpunk mystery game in partnership with One More Story Games. Using their new interactive story engine StoryStylus to create the game, X Marks The Spot will be made available on mobile, Facebook, and web platforms. X Marks the Spot is set in the world of Mandatory Upgrade, a tabletop role-playing game set on the future earth where technology has progressed in leaps and bounds and the human race is running to keep up.

The current plan is to release it in the Spring of 2016.  In the meantime, here’s a summary of the story to whet your appetite.

Special Agent Rachel Varley didn’t know what she was getting into when she rejoined the world of international intelligence & security, but she sure wasn’t expecting to be investigating a suspicious death on her first day back, and definitely not a death involving a runaway cybernetic exosuit. Will Rachel be able to get to the heart of the mystery and still manage to escape in one piece?
