About Dystopia

In Dystopia, each player is a rogue AI that has taken control of some robots in a post-apocalyptic industrial wasteland. Clouds of radioactive gas hang over the landscape, so mole robots must be used to tunnel underneath them. Drones can also navigate parts of this ruined world. These robots can upload viruses to the automated factories in the area, allowing the factories' products to be stolen for use by the AI. Using these resources, more factories can be infected, more robots built, and more programs installed for the AI to use.

Dystopia is a clone of the board game Concordia (designed by Mac Gerdts) with a different theme. The rules and maps are exactly the same; only the names are different. The rules for Concordia can be found here.
