Great news, we got a publisher at GenCon! Mondo Games was a perfect fit, and we’re so happy to be working with them. Vectra City will be released as Video Vortex: Analog Apocalyse sometime around Q2 2019. Major changes include a refocus from 1v1 to being a four-player game, and win conditions revolving around spreading your faction’s influence. Instead of picking a single hero, you each draft 3 from the entire roster.[READ MORE]
One Week from Gen Con!
Gen Con 2018 is finally upon us… almost! We’re making the final preparations to show off Vectra City to publishers and playtesters, mainly a lot of printing and practicing our pitch. Out of all the promotional material we’ve constructed, my favorite is by far the sell-sheet which functions as a classic VHS cover. We’ll have a few of these to maybe give out at Gen Con, if you ask very nicely.[READ MORE]
Changelog - July 8th 2018
Energy Changes Starting Max Energy is 2 down from 3. Developer Notes: Due to the changing of Sun cycles, Energy needed to change as well. Lowering the starting max from 3 to 2, makes decisions matter more in the beginning.[READ MORE]
Changelog - July 2nd 2018
Sun Changes Changed how the Sun cycle works. Each player chooses 1 Sun at the beginning of the game. After each round, the suns will cycle between the 2 chosen suns and the Prime Sun. Developer notes: The reason for this change was to simplify sun rotations and provide some predictability during gameplay. Prime Sun changes: Instead of landing on the Prime Sun, gaining 1 Max Energy, then moving on to the next Sun; landing on the Prime Sun gives players 1 Max Energy, 1 Focus and has a Sun ability.[READ MORE]
Changelog - June 29th 2018
Card Changes Reworked a majority of the Club cards. Keywords added to increase faction identity and cut down on text on the cards. Each faction has at least 1 keyword associated with them: Shield : This Connection must be attacked first Allied : If you play or have played the same faction card this turn, the ability activates Recruit : Activate this when you buy the card from the Club Detain : Trash cards in the Club.[READ MORE]

Changelog - May 10th 2018
Changelog for version .55 Card Changes Runner - Energy cost lowered from 1 to 0. This is a massive change to the game. Due to the playtests at Protospiel Indy, I received a lot of feedback for Runners in particular. They are meant to be bad cards to filter that you want to filter out of your deck. However, they are proving much too restrictive. Once you start buying cards and you start drawing those cards, you simply don’t have enough Energy to play them; thus they are always a dead card in your hand.[READ MORE]
