Brand new cyberpunk sci-fi game set in a dystopian world 70 years in the future. Ultralight, narrativist rules geared toward player improvisation, story-telling & collaboration.
Help us test and promote our new game! Axon Punk: Overdrive is a narrativist, sci-fi roleplaying game set in a cyberpunk world 70 years in the future. The goal is to produce the experience of reading Gibsonâ€™s â€œNeuromancerâ€ while watching â€œGhost in the Shellâ€ and listening to all of Janelle Monaeâ€™s Metropolis Saga. The game's ultralight mechanics are geared toward player improvisation, story-telling and collaboration in a gritty, dystopian world hyper-infused with digital/neural connections. Try out a taste of the system in a fast-paced demo where your team is hired to intercept the transfer of a corporate scientist on the mega-highways of the future. Play one of the game's five classes: Hacker, Engineer, SlumMerc, Cyberized, or Artificial Intelligence (A.I., also called Ghosts).
