V.Next takes place in 2035, in cyberpunk Seattle. It’s unique in that developer SyncBuildRun will be releasing a new episode weekly. V.Next will play more like an interactive television series than a game.

You’ll become Vivienne Denue, a former hacker with no past who wants revenge against those who have stolen her memories. To do so, she must relearn technical skills and remaster hardware and software. Once Vivienne understands who she is, she will become a beacon of hope in a world where technology and society can be overwhelming.

With its low-res graphics, V.Next pays homage to such novels as William Gibson’s Neuromancer and Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash, and visually references such films as Blade Runner and The Matrix.

SyncBuildRun founder and CEO Paul Furio: “Our first priority is creating great episodic entertainment. We also want to embrace a progressive and inclusive attitude, and tell stories that feature diverse leading characters who are often overlooked by popular media.”

The first season of V.Next is planned for release in Spring 2016 and will feature 18 episodes as well as a pilot episode. It will launch on PC and Mac, followed by iOS and Android.

The Kickstarter campaign will run until July 31, 2015, with a base goal of $120,000.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
