Psi-punk Kickstarter last chance – A FUDGE cyberpunk/psionics RPG
Psi-punk is a game I would very much like to see made, and I previously posted an interview with designer Jacob Wood about the game. The RPG, which uses the FUDGE system, is set in a world mashing up psionics and cybernetics, with some very nice art from Melissa Gay, whose work you have probably seen in The Dresden Files RPG and Part-Time Gods. Psi-punk is set in 2096 in a world where people with psionic powers have found their way into society, which is dominated by mega-corporations:
“Here, you will enter a world where huge corporations control large aspects of the public’s everyday lives and have even usurped the role of governments in many instances. However, despite the control these corporations have over the lives of the average citizen, many people still resist their reign and attempt to fight them – either openly or covertly.
Meanwhile, powerful humans with psychic abilities, commonly referred to as “mentals,” “psychics,” “psi-freaks,” and “psi-punks” have become a formidable minority that leaves mundane citizens feeling powerless – a fact which the controlling corporations seek to exploit to their own ends.”
Well, as things come down to the wire, the Psi-punk Kickstarter is just under $700 from its goal with 15 hours left. I think that Psi-punk looks really interesting, and the designer has posted a lot of information about the game including some of the psionic powers available, how Souljacking works (allowing you to take the memories of other characters, charm them, or give them commands), and – most recently, posting a video showing Psi-punk in play.
So, if you are interested in backing the Psi-punk RPG, then today is your last day to go to the Kickstarter and do so (It ends on Monday August 27 at 2:59 am EDT and a copy of the PDF is $15 and a copy of the book is $30).
