Previously, we had covered the early progress of an RPG in the same universe as the card game of Android: Netrunners. Since the RPG isn’t a direct port of Netrunners, it is referred to in the interview below as simply “Android”, the name of the universe in which Netrunners occurs.
Set to be released by Legacy Games, Fantasy Flight Games’ Android: Netrunner is coming to Android. The difference is, it won’t be a virtual card game, but is instead going to be an RPG set within the Netrunners universe. Legacy Games didn’t want to simply digitize the card game, but create something different for the franchise.
Fans of tabletop gaming are quite familiar with Fantasy Flights Games. While tabletop is their bread and butter, they’ve also dabbled in software, releasing digital adaptations of boardgames like Elder Sign: Omens, as well as companion apps for their boards games, like the Star Wars Dice app to go along with their X-Wing boardgame.
