Hey meatpunks!

Hopefully by now you should have got your Backerkit survey, which you'll need to complete to get your rewards (and thank you to the 84% who already have, go to the top of the class). This is *especially* important for those of you delightful folks who opted to have your own Meatsona drawn or wanted your name included as an easter egg, as we need your input before we can finish the book!

If you haven't filled out your survey yet, check those inboxes - and if you think you haven't received one (and you should have, it's all automated), then you can request a new one from https://meatpunksrpg.backerkit.com.

And now's a great time to spread the meatpunk love like meatpaste on a fresh burrowcorn loaf - all your friends who missed out on the campaign and have been cursing their very existence ever since can get in on the action by pre-ordering at https://meatpunksrpg.com.

Surveys have to be in before the start of October though sooner is better, especially if you're at one of the pledges that features you in the book.

Progress wise, the book is written, edited and laid out and we're just getting the remaining art finished. We're so close we can taste it... tastes like... bacon?

More as it happens!

Stay meaty and don't forget to be gay, pilot mechs, and kill Nazis.

Hey Meatpunks! 

First of all, happy Pride month! We're putting extra emphasis on the being gay right now, while still remembering our mech-piloting and Nazi killing duties.

This is a short update to let you know we're getting really close now. The text is all laid out so there's just some more art to commission and some editing and proofing to be done before we can get the PDF out to all you beautiful backers! If you backed at the Meat-Egg, Meatsona or Extremely Limited Meatpunks levels, we'll be in touch soon to quiz you about your contributions to Meat World!

Hugs, kisses and solidarity forever, The Meatpunks team.

Text complete! So many words!

Hey everyone! Guess who's got the complete text of Extreme Meatpunks Forever: The Roleplaying Game? 

It's me! And also possibly you, but only if you've hacked me, in which case stop that, go take down Stormfront or something instead, you talented hacker you, it's not ready yet.

The writing on this book is so good, y'all. Heather and Aura have delivered the exact game we sold you, and more. You were ready for queer anti-fascist action but I don't think you're quite ready for how it's also the funniest anticapitalist tract, or how much it hates San Francisco. Seriously, this book *hates* San Francisco.

I'm currently pulling everything together into one cohesive document, and then it'll be off to our editor! Can't wait to get it to you!

Greeting meatpunks one and all!

Things are progressing well despite capitalism's and the modern world's best efforts to kill us all! The revised and expanded rules are so close to being done that we can almost taste their burnt acrid secretions, and the world of... well, Meatworld... is expanding at a frankly alarming rate. You know that bit at the end of Society? And that bit at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy 2? Those, but mashed up, in tabletop rpg form.

Due to issues mentioned in the last update, plus, y'know, the ongoing global pandemic, we're running a bit behind our predicted schedule, but we're all back and running at full speed now. We're hoping to have the PDF version of the game with you some time in the Summer, probably around the anniversary of the Kickstarter campaign. If we can get it to you sooner, we absolutely will! Printed copies will follow afterwards.

We'd like to thank you in advance for your patience. We want to make sure you get the best, meatiest, punkiest game possible and we couldn't do that by rushing. In return, have some new art! Here is The Meatborn, a human who's become infected with meatagens and become somewhere between Tetsuo: The Iron Man and a full English breakfast.

We hope you're having a better day than they are!

Love and kisses, The Meatpunks Team

Interdimensional transmission incoming! New art, updates on where we are, and an explanation.

* Your radio sputters back into life after a long while gathering dust, the chitin antenna twitching above its bone speaker, the meat wires inside pulsating rhythmically *

Hello? You all still there? Can you hear me?

Apologies for the long delay in between updates. I assure you we've been working on stuff! But real life has an unfortunate way of kicking you when you're not looking, and sadly two of the core Meatpunks team suffered deaths in the family in the weeks after the project funded, and there was a period of illness leading up to that. So we're a little bit behind where we'd want to be, but not in any way we're worried about, we plan contingency into our timings for this sort of thing.

In terms of new rules, we've got extended GM rules including full examples of GM moves, advice of hard and soft rules, play examples and NPC creation, which we're calling "making up a guy and getting mad at him", plus a whole bunch of monsters and new playbooks. And we've got pictures of some of them! Here, have a look!

On top of that, we've got more mech options. You want gross fuzzblood and magician slime? We got gross fuzzblood and magician slime. In fact, it's everywhere. I better go clean that up.  Back soon!
