The Story

The game is set in Hues City, a parody of our society and economy, with colorful cards, different classes and playing styles.

AKIBARA: The technology valley of Hues City. People walking around with cybernetic enhancements, a faint glow coming from the windows of gamers expending endless hours playing competitive games online. This is the birthplace of new tech and the apps that rule us, of electronic beats and coding poetry. This is the playground for tinkerers, digital artists, modellers of the third dimension. This is where bitcoin fortunes are made with other people’s data, this is where big brother comes to watch.

GASTOWN: The black and rainbow colors of a dirty port water infused with diesel and who knows what. Container ships, scaled to hyperbole, bringing the goods no one really needs. Rats almost as big, become sentient feeding on the stray surreality of the place. Hard work, big hustles, leaps of faith. The heavy lifters, the artists, the survivors, the dealers in visions, the denizens of the liminal spaces and of the blind spots of the law. Pockets of gentrification, bustling streets, corners so dark you can lose your soul.

OPER: The most expensive real estate in Hues City. Where the tall shiny towers can blind your eyes, and the expensive scent can make you sneeze. Here you walk into echoing halls and amass a fortune with the tried and true methods of speculation and insider trading. This is the realm of the millionaire CEO, the walking suit and the smile of a lending shark.
