Funded now on Kickstarter, with an opportunity to get digital and print versions – including catchup editions. This is the third book of Tales From The Interface.
A dystopian megalopolis… a harsh, violent city where citizens get slaughtered at the first sign of unruliness by the Robopaxes: Nightmarish, Lovecraftian tentacular monsters. This grimful backdrop is punctuated with a good dose of dark humour, provided by the often clueless inhabitants of the city.Emmanuel Filteau

Throwing myself into this world was an excellent idea. It’s crazy and a lot going on. You really don’t know what is around the corner, but I loved it.
This is a certainly a weird and wonderful read, with mutant rats, robots and squid-like things (?) Nevertheless this was a highly enjoyable read.
I really get the feel of some of the more out-there stories in Judge Dredd, or a weird amalgamation of some of the more off the wall Future Shocks. This is high praise and should be read to be enjoyed. I can see people settling down on a dark night to read this as it totally immerses you into it.
In this book, you follow the ‘normal’ people as they get to see not only a bit of the life of those below, but those up above. There are some differing views in here, but they all click in well – there is some brilliant world building here.
The art is bubbly and fun in all the right ways – graffiti style cyberpunk – but can also get the darker and gritty side of it all. This is something that gets missed in other titles.
This looks to be a fun story to back – available in English and French too.
Back it on Kickstarter here.
