Abort Retry Fail 1000

Suggested Price $0.50

Los Angeles, 1991. A machine, formed from liquid metal capable of taking any shape, arrives from a war-torn future. Its mission: To destroy a malfunctioning killing machine gone rogue, undo the damage done to the timeline, and prevent it from changing the future, using any means nessesary. The new machine is sleek, powerful, and impossibly advanced. It can form its limbs into weapons, survive any amount of damage completely unscathed, and impersonate anyone it meets,

It cannot be bargined with, it cannot be stopped, and it is suffering from the exact same malfunction as the last one.

Abort Retry Fail 1000 is a 1-page sequel game to Abort Retry Fail. Like it's predecessor, players take the role of subroutines collectively trying to direct a killer robot and failing miserably. Each player takes the role of one disguise subroutine of the liquid metal robot, attempting to use their limited skillset to best effect in enacting needlessly complex schemes. Though thematically similar, the game utilitzes a different set of mechanics to create a more competative atmopshere with greater emphasis on encouraging poor decision making amoung players and coming up with madcap actions to pad out your plans.

This is a small, minimalist d6 game for three or more players, with light GM duties, best played immediately following a game of Abort Retry Fail. It can be run extremely quickly, lasting between 30 minutes to an hour, though it can end quite abruptly. This makes it great for a warmup or cooldown game, or for running when time is tight.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
