Hack the Planet is a cyberpunk tabletop roleplaying game about clawing power away from those at the top while surviving extreme heavy weather. In the not-so-distant future, our environment and technological growth was impacted by Acts of God: natural disasters radicalized by climate change effects that wreak havoc on the world.
You play individuals living in Shelter 1, a massive facility for climate refugees, corporations, and the superrich. These days, the Shelter serves only the few corporations who saw these changes coming—and you’ve had enough.
While you seem powerless compared to these corporations, you use technology to forge a new way of life within and around a massive Shelter 1. You pull off daring heists using experimental weapons and armor, install cybernetics into your bodies, and hack the corporate nanites pervasive in your body, food, and culture. You deceive those you don’t trust, betraying them when necessary. You rip apart hurricanes in this cascading, sprawling metropolis.
Play to find out how well you fare against the odds as you leverage your appropriated and modified futuristic technologies, wits, and sordid pasts to take power from a corporate society that will stop at nothing to keep it.
