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.
Listen to our voices to drown out the chattering of the demon who lives inside your head (podcast appearances)

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.
We're fully funded and it's all your fault (plus stretch goal chat)

This is all your fault
We’re fully funded! You did that! And I want you all to know that whatever happens from this point on, IT IS YOUR FAULT. You could have stopped us, but instead you gave us money and now we’re going to make EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER: THE ROLEPLAYING GAME. What have you unleashed upon the world?
So now we’re going onto Stretch Goals! We’ve only revealed the first few for the moment because a) we love drama and mystery, and b) there is no B.
The first few stretch goals are entirely dedicated to making the book even shinier. First off at £25,000, we’re going to have printed endpapers so the inside cover of your hardcover books look just as pretty as the rest of it will. Then at £35,000 we get UV spot varnish on the front cover (where most of the cover is matte and selected bits of it are shiny, you know the sort of thing).
Past that, we’ll be upping our art budget at £45,000 and £55,000 so there are even more disgusting and fascinating illustrations throughout.
We’ve intentionally kept the goal gaps quite big so that we don’t overstretch ourselves financially or in terms of effort and time. Basically, we want to deliver an awesome book to you, and we don’t want stretch goals to mess that up.
We’ll reveal a new stretch goal for each one you unlock, like a very slow, text based striptease.
We love you (and remember, this is your fault, not ours), The Meatpunks Team.
We're so close! Tell your friends! Tell your enemies! YELL IT TO THE SKY IN DEFIANCE OF THAT HATEFUL ORB THE SUN

Hey meatpunks! It's been a wild and joyous first couple of days on the Kickstarter. We're so incredibly close to hitting our goal in less than 48 hours, which is outstanding. At the time of writing, there's only £742 of our £15,000 goal left, so I'm hoping that if I head to bed now it'll all be there in the morning, like a meat-covered tooth fairy. So many teeth, dripping gore, way too many teeth for such a small mouth...
If you're as excited as we are about Extreme Meatpunks Forever, the most helpful thing you can do is talk about it - on Twitter, on Facebook, yelling the Gospel of Dora Godkiller to random people in the streets, it's all good. Don't forget to mention our URL, meatpunksrpg.com, especially in any statements required after your arrest for yelling about meat to strangers in the street.
