Thank you so much to every one of our 928 backers who helped us raise over 200% of our fairly ambitious goal! You all rock and have made us all very happy, even those of us who don't exist. We're now going to begin the arduous process of rounding up all the promotional meat mechs we sent out into the world and beginning the press campaign to explain that yes, while they did destroy many buildings and two bridges, they looked bitchin' doing it. We will also be finishing the book.

See you soon with more updates and until then, remember: be gay, pilot mechs, kill Nazis. And also: MEAT.

Love, The Meatpunks Team

Hey Meatpunks!

You've gone gone and done it again, despite all warnings and ignored omens, and we've reached our first stretch goal! EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER: The Roleplaying Game will now feature printed end papers featuring some of our fabulous art so you know you've got a really classy book in your hands. If you've been thinking about upgrading from pdf to a hardcover, now's a great time to say, hey this hardcover I upgraded to also has printed end papers!

That also means we can announce our first mystery stretch goal, which will be... Meatworld Diaries, a series of short stories exclusive to backers, written by Heather Flowers and featuring the Meatsonas of backers at the Meatsona and Extremely Limited Meatpunks levels. We'll unlock that at £65,000, but next onto spot varnish for the cover at £35,000!

Love and kisses, The Meatpunks Team.

EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER posters now available! Be an ARTPUNK

Hey there Meatpunks!

We've got an exciting new pledge level that's just been made available for those of you who don't have quite enough meat spattered on your walls - at the ArtPunk pledge level, you can get both the hardcover book and a super-limited edition A1 poster of Paulina Ganucheau's fantastic cover art. Only 100 of these posters will ever be made. Here's one hung in a post-brutalist gallery and totally not just a very quick Photoshop*.

Look at that! Imagine that hanging on your wall. You'll be the envy of all the other punks, meat or otherwise.

To get the poster and the hardback, just back at the ArtPunk pledge level for around $69 which, as I think we all can agree, is nice. Because this pledge level is limited, we can't offer a separate Solidarity award, but for every £10 you donate over the base cost, we'll donate 2 copies of the pdf to the community pile!

As long as they don't sell out, the posters will also be available in the Backerkit store as an addon if you're backing at a PDF level or one of the super special levels but one to pick one up.

Love The Meatpunks Team

* Artists rendition, for example purposes only, design may change yada yada, but basically this is what it will look like.

New Social Stretch Goal! Get the word out to unlock community copies and the Powered by Blood SRD!

Hey Meatpunks!

We want to spread the word of hatred towards that awful orb the sun far and wide, as we're sure you do too! To that end, we've unlocked our first Social Stretch Goal!

For every retweet this tweet gets, we'll donate a copy of the PDF to members of marginalised communities AND if we hit hit 300 retweets, we'll unlock the POWERED BY BLOOD SRD - a system agnostic version of the rules that you can use to make your own games with!

Want a duelling system for a swashbuckling game? There. Want a healing system based on emotions and drama for your soap opera game? There. Want absurd powers for a supers game? THERE, BABY! And all for commercial or non-commercial use as you see fit and the meat-gods allow.

With the love of a stolen sun, The Meatpunks Team.

Hey Meatpunks!

The campaign rolls on like a murderhorse spiralling down a hill towards an unaware group of Faceless People. We've just hit our five hundredth backer(!) and are well on our way to that first stretch goal! Go you! Tell your friends to give us dollars so we can do more of this!

The core meatpunks dev team of Heather, Aura and Oli have all been on podcasts recently to talk about the game (we're never allowed to all be on one together - the sheeple will tell you that it's because we live in wildly different timezones but the truth is that if we are ever to all speak at once our voices will merge and speak The One Truth and nobody wants that, least of all us).

Heather has a lovely fireside chat with the Pod of Blunders and talks about the genesis of the project, what it means to be a queer games designer and their plan to build a giant laser to blow up the moon.

Heather and Aura talk about PbtA play culture and run a little Meatpunks actual play with Rach Shelkey of +1 Forward.

Oli talks about how he discovered Meatpunks and his other favourite queer rpg, Thirsty Sword Lesbians with The Gauntlet.

That's a lot of talking and we're gonna keep talking until this thing is done. You better believe it.

Love and kisses, The Meatpunks Team.
