Paranoia XP goes gold
August 6, 2004 9:35 AM   Subscribe

Attention Alpha Complex troubleshooters of blue clearance or higher, good news! The open source version of Paranoia has gone gold. Just in time for GenCon. The happiness control officer will be around soon, to check on your compliance. Have a nice day!

The old West End version was the most popular game with our little group, and this new version has all sorts of updates and changes to make the paranoia more modern. I wish I was going to GenCon this year so I could try it out with some enthusiastic new players.

I'm still annoyed that Gencon isn't in Milwaukee anymore... Grumble Grumble... But I did love Paranoia. So what secret society do you belong too?

Notice from Housing Preservation and Development and Mind Control: Orange (revised) flavor will be pulled due to lack of sales. The open slot will be filled with a new RED flavor, Strawberry-Lobster. Still no word on Borscht.

my favorite entry from the 31 official flavors link - Mil-O-V00

Secret Societies? I know not of what you speak citizen. Are you sure you are feeling well?

Is anyone else's browser asking for their "clearance" level? Oh well, I'll just put in anything, what's the worst that could happen?

There are no secret societies, and if there were then we would know about them. Are you implying the computer is wrong citizen?

Paranoia was a fantastic game.
