Blink, and you’ll miss it. Wade Dyer gave Fragged Cyberpunk just a week to run on Kickstarter, and we’re down to the final hours.
The campaign only asked for AU$500 and easily smashed that target. There’s nearly AU$14,000 pledged at this point. Why such a stealth campaign? Well, the 100-page book is based on Fragged Empire so there’s no need to test and balance rules. It wants to be out by the end of the year. You can join the campaign, if you’re quick, on Kickstarter.
You’re a meat kebab at AU$13 (about £8) which means your body is 100% organic, no tech, and you get the PDF Fragged Cyberpunk edition.
As the name suggests, Fragged Cyberpunk is cyberpunk, but the twist here is that game set in the far future and humanity faces extinction due to genetic erosion. It’s a prequel to Fragged Empire.
If you know the Fragged Empire setting, then Cyberpunk is set in the final years of the Age of Gnawing, just before the creation of the Archons.
Specifically, Fragged Cyberpunk is based in the largest human megacity, Nega City, with a population of 10 billion.
You don’t have to be a meat kebab. Alternative AU$13 options also offer up Forlorn, when you’re sickly and kept alive by technology, Scrapper when your body is a mix of mismatched and scavenged parts, Prime when you have all the best parts working wonderfully together or Freak where you have a weird body.
The alternative options continue, Hologram, in which you’re a projection, Bot in which you are hardwired into a machine and Software in which you have no body are all AU$13.
What’s the most popular? Prime, which has attracted 161 backers at the time of writing, followed by Meat Kebab with 137. The least popular? Software.
