Hyper-Killer (HK) is a role-playing game with simplicity in mind -- just as those who use it will have simplicity of mind. Oh yeah, free-form gaming is also important, and is especially good to annoy those damn rules lawyer types. Rules are kept to a minimum because it saves us a lot of writing, and, of course, it allows the game to flow a lot smoother. We expect a mature and experienced group of gamers to make rule decisions as a group with the Game Master (GM) having final say? but from experience, we all know the group will argue like hell and the GM will just do what he wants anyway. HK is also a system developed for fast character growth, without those tedious rules getting in the way. Just don't forget keep an eye out for that just-as-quick character death. Weapons and Gadgets of destruction -- well, at least violence -- are plentiful as the dice you can hurl around to kill your hated opponents. And, of course, no player characters out there will be using them to try and kill each other, will they? Oh, NO!
The typical far-future world is dark and nasty. The citizens are too busy looking out for Number One (and I don?t mean the Commander, here) to give a rat's ass about you. Don't think that there are no good times, though. Make a solid run and live like a king for a week at the nearest Pleasure Planet -- or perhaps you prefer shopping at one of the many intergalactic "Guns 'O Rama" malls. Just don't ever forget that anyone and everyone are looking for the illusive galactic credits -- and you are a walking bag of body parts for the Body Bank that just might pay next month's rent.
HK is primarily designed to be a dark urban science fiction game. It is simple to learn and quick to play. Great for a time filler after your regular game or as a replacment if some of your group doesn't show. A beer & preztel game that's more filling.
HK is best played using a hex map, miniatures to keep track of distance, and some friends -- if you have any. Yeah, I know that sounds more like a war game but don't limit yourself to such narrow perceptions, or we'll send the Perception Police 'round. If you have a complex about a figurine representing you, just make sure you buy a real big one, with a real big gun and jump jets -- I?m sure that will make you feel better about yourself.
