You are coherent data traveling at the speed of light,
a digital avatar searching for computerized information. 
There is something hidden in the virtual realms, and you shall hack it.

Ann Arbor, MI - Horse Shark Games, an independent TTRPG publisher, announces the preview release of Netcrawl, the Virtual Reality Computer RPG. Netcrawl is a TTRPG about adventuring inside a computer system. Everyone goes in, seconds pass in the meatspace as players spend hours conquering a cyber-dungeon - together. The preview beta version of Netcrawl is available now at Crowdfunding is slated for the fall of 2024.

Netcrawl uses the d20 System and Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG rulebook for an imaginative and dynamic VR setting that can run as a cyber sidecar to your current game or as a stand alone game with little or no notion of an outside meatspace world. Inspiration is drawn from William Gibson's seminal cyberpunk novel, Neuromancer, among many other works of science fiction and cyberpunk.
