Do you like things like Medabots, Megaman, Transformers and Tron? Buckle up then, you're gonna love this!...

Through valleys made of pure silicon, bots built their civilizations.

Micro Circuits is a game about robots delving dungeons, fighting tyranny and upgrading themselves.

This is a world of semiconductor metals and pure data. Transistor cities, resin rivers and megabyte castles fill the electronic-infused dark fantasy lands of Micro Circuits.

In Micro Circuits, players will take on the role of bots living in an electronic fantasy world, full of adventuring, fighting, dungeons and exploration. They have to be careful, though, because the Main Chain is always watching, trying to encrypt all robots and turn them into loyal assets.

Main features

  • Easy character creation with only 2 main stats: hard and soft. 
  • 20 different designations (backgrounds) to assign to your robots. 
  • You are what you are: robots’ skills are defined by the parts that make them up. Does your bot have a hover? A rocket launcher? A grappling hook?
  • A loose electronic dark fantasy setting for you to make it your own. 
  • 20 different scripts (spells) to cast into 13 different enemies.
  • An easy to pick up and play system, inspired by OSR classics like Knave and Mausritter.
  • Easy combat system. Defeat your enemies and attach their parts to you, upgrade yourself!

100% Funded!

This game is only possible because of the support of about 50 people who believe in the project and supported the project in the beginning. Through our itchfunding, were able to reach our goal of 400$, which paid for the art in the book you will receive, as well as the cover. 

By purchasing, you get the PDF booklet with:

  • 56 pages containing the rules, tables for character creation, dungeon and hexmap generation, lots of items and modules;
  • 20 Scripts (spells) and 13 enemies to blast with those data-altering spells;
  • A short and sweet description of the Micro Circuits setting;
  • An exclusive pick-up and play dungeon: The Chapel of the Mainframe!;
  • Besides the booklet, you also get the character sheet file; and
  • The Chained Panopticon, a dangerous enemy for bot characters to face in their adventures.


Se você não consegue efetuar pagamentos pelo Itch, pode mandar qualquer valor pelo Pix que já ajuda bastante. Pagamentos a partir de R$ 40,00 recebem o pdf do livro e a ficha. Quem sabe eu faço uma versão em português em breve?

Atenção: se você pagar por pix, coloque seu  e-mail na mensagem do pix para que eu possa lhe enviar a chave do jogo!

Hi, it possibile to have community copie?

Hello! Sorry to ask you, but will there be more community copies? I live in Brazil but I'm not brazilian myself, I'm an immigrant that's had a rough time getting a job here and I became a househusband instead. I know we're having it rough in the country but once I can I'll contribute to this project because I can see how big the RPG scene is in this country with the likes of Tormenta, and I wanna keep creators like you doing more stuff. Again, sorry to ask this :(


Hello! I'm gearing up to play a campaign soon and I was just getting your extra dungeon zines. However I was wondering if there was a way I could access the panopticon without buying the rules again. I bought my physical on exalted funeral. If I have to purchase on itch I will, but please let me know :) 

Hey! Thanks for getting the game! The Chained Panopticon can now be downloaded for free on this page :)


Thank you so much you are a champion! Is there anywhere else people share their thoughts/content for micro circuits? 

Hope you have fun! If you want to chat about Micro Circuits you can write about it on twitter using the #osr hashtag, the subreddit /osr or the facebook group OSR RPG. These are the places where I've seen people talking about it the most. For extra content, I try to group all fan-made content on this collection here on itch.


Hey is there any chance of some more community copies? Id love to try running this solo 

More community copies coming soon!

Oh shoot, did I happen to miss these community copies being added? 


Any chance for more community copies? I'm from South America but I'm really interested in this game!

Sure, I'll add some community copies soon, keep an eye out :)

Thank you so much, no rush!

Community Copies are up :)


Thanks a lot! Can't wait to play a game of this!!


Is there any chance of a printer-friendly version?


Essa ficha com carinha de Medabots hahaha.


100% proposital! Quis trazer esse sentimento bem clássico de robôs e suas peças hahah




You can bet it is! And I'm thinking of adding it as an extra mega-monster if we can get the game to 50%! 

We can thank @cueinn for the unhinged idea of a BEHOLBOT

If you have any questions about the game or the project in general, please, don't hesitate to put them here, or you can contact me on twitter @alexander_sheep.

can you add more community copies?
