A game of lost memories, lost hope, and lost technology.

You are part of a team sent out to investigate a structure known only as the Library.

It harks back to the AI Dominion and a golden age where humanity enjoyed endless pleasure but lived as thralls of the machines.

Now, you’re picking through the mess.

The builder of the Library was an AI that never contacted humanity directly.

However, the Reclaimers say that it believed itself to be a guardian for humanity.

Now that every AI has vanished, the Library has information you’ll need to keep the world going.

Alter Data uses an expanded version of the core mechanic from our game Jovia. The goal is to roll a dice pool and get as many unique results as possible. Having any die come up with a result of 1 gives a bonus, while a result of 6 adds a complication.

Built for quick play and light resource management, players use their proficiency pools to add to the base number of dice they roll, and can spend points from personae for a short-term boost to their performance.
