Dystopia is a is a total conversion of the Source Engine that places players into tense combat situations in a high-tech world spanned by computer networks. As Punks or Corporate Mercenaries, players will fight through the physical world to gain access, via Jack-in Points, to cyberspace. Cyberspace is a three dimensonal representation of the world's network. In cyberspace, players must fight off enemy hackers and launch programs to gain control of critical systems and to affect the physical world. Gameplay progresses through inter-linked physical and cyberspace objectives, and players must work together to achieve victory for their team. Players will be immersed in action-packed battles, whether as a heavily augmented combat mercenary armed to the teeth with the latest in firepower and cybernetic implants, or as a twitch-reflex cyberdecker racing to infiltrate a cyberspace node.

All donations that normally go to help Puny Human create and sustain free games like Blade Symphony and Dystopia, are going to charity until the end of the month. All PHAN Club members gain access to Blade Symphony!

Posted by urinal-cake on Mar 18th, 2011

One week ago today, Japan was struck with a massive earthquake and ensuing tsunami, which caused catastrophic damage in the northern part of the country and led to the death of thousands of individuals.

When you're a gamer, it can be easy to continuously get lost in worlds of fiction and fantasy, and perhaps little by little forget the importance of the real world in our everyday gamer lives. Japan plays a big part in this role, providing us with many creative examples that inspire fun games, hardware and technology to create them and wonderful fans to play them.

This especially rings true with our latest game, Blade Symphony, which pulls many artistic and thematic ideas and philosophies from Japanese culture. Blade Symphony owes something to this country, and as human beings, so do we.

That's why through the end of March, all donations that go to be a member of the PHAN Club will be given to charity in order to benefit relief work in Japan. Normally, these funds are used to keep Puny Human's free games in development, but now others need it more.

As on a usual basis, those that donate to the Puny Human Appreciation Network will be made an exclusive member, with many rewards and benefits! One of the added benefits to being a PHAN Club member right now, is access to the Blade Symphony Closed Beta!

Please find it in your heart to go to the PHAN Club's main page and help benefit the people of Japan in their effort to clean up after this disaster, and we'll make sure that you are enjoying our game in no time!

It's important for all of us on this tiny planet, including Puny Human, to help each other out -- so please do your part.

Edit 16/04/2011: we've just heard back from the Red Cross and gotten our shiny receipt. Once again, thanks for donating - it's your money that's going to a good cause!

That's perfectly okay.
We're offering this so that people who want to become a member of the PHAN Club, and also gain access to the Blade Symphony closed beta, can do so -- but are giving their money to a good cause.

Great job uc. I hope it will help families who lost their houses and can't afford to eat more than 1 rice ball per day. I myself should somehow help people who suffers on north part of Honshu. Can't do much from Tokyo.
