Jim likes Shock because this Philip K Dick isn't going to game itself.
Shock: Social Science Fiction is Joshua A.C. Newman’s fiction game of culture and future shock. Inspired by the works of Bruce Sterling, Kim Stanley Robinson, Ursula K. LeGuin, and Philip K. Dick, the game pushes the players to make stories that matter to them — stories about politics, philosophy, love, and death.
Players pursue the interests of both Protagonists and Antagonists, drawing on their principles with motivation and resources. Play highlights what you care about as a player and gives you the tools to highlight and question the things you care about.
