GURPS on CD-ROM
First: This is not the same as the GURPS Character Assistant. This page is about the idea of putting GURPS onto CD-ROM in interactive format, which is currently a pipe dream. GURPS Character Assistant is a character creation program on disk, and is available now.
Okay, what about the interactive version? It's been sidelined, shelved, reapproached, and otherwise abused, and at the moment no work is being done on the GURPS CD-ROM concept. The basic idea was to make GURPS easier for beginners to grasp and experienced roleplayers to utilize. This FAQ is very old; we'll update it when we have any new movement on this project.
Q: What would the GURPS CD-ROM include?
Q: Will it be another of those straight-to-PDF conversions? I'm not sure my eyes can stand the strain.
Q: Where will I be able to buy the GURPS CD-ROM?
Q: How much will it cost?
Q: For those of us GURPSheads who can recite the flight turning radius rules backward in Aborigine, will it still be cool enough to justify the expense?
Q. Both Windows and Mac, right?
Q: Will the GURPS CD-ROM be in a platform-independent format so that I can use my web browser with it?
Q. Where can I send suggestions?
Q. Can I volunteer to playtest it?
Q. If this is successful, will you supplement it with CD-ROM versions of other GURPS products?
Q. Will this be a separate, playable game?
Q. Cool. What other features will it have?
