Cyber plus Punk has an interesting physical form factor; eight pamphlets in a boxed edition. The RPG is designed for one-shots and touches on sensitive topics.
The current version is out and free to download. At least, it’s free for now. The countdown on the offer on Itch is set to expire a day or so before the Kickstarter does.

The physical box set requires a pledge of $30 and this includes the digital offering, with shipping to be added later.
There’s a retailer option at $100, for five copies.
The estimated delivery, for all three of those main tiers, is this July.
