8 days ago – Sun, Jan 17, 2021 at 04:27:35 PM

Hello backers!


It's been a wild start to 2021 for everyone, so we hope you all are doing as well as can be. We have been working through the chaos over at Wrong Brothers Gaming. I'm communicating with the team and things are lining up well. We're lucky to work with so many brilliant people, and we've got lots of exciting updates coming for you in the near future.

For the moment, want to share with you a pre-alpha preview of the Axon Punk: Expanded gamebook.


Pre-Alpha Gamebook Preview:

Here is a preview of our rough "pre-Alpha" version of the Axon Punk: Expanded gamebook. We have highlighted in yellow the areas where we are working on the new content. I'm communicating with the graphic designer we're hoping will do the layout and I'm excited to see where he can take it!


Download here through private DriveThruRPG link.


Here are some clips from the gamebook:

One of the many faces you can meet on the streets of the Megacities in 2085.
Excerpt from the "Character Creation" Chapter.
Preview of the expanded Vehicles section. Lots more coming to help everyone deck out their own personal vehicle for traversing the Megacities. More preview mods in the full PDF.

Sending our best!

Post-campign Update 7 - yay, it's not a tumor!
about 1 month ago – Wed, Dec 16, 2020 at 10:02:54 PM

Hello backers!


Thank you for all of your patience and understanding lately! The last few months have been an absolute rollercoaster for the Wrong Brothers and the Axon Punk team, so we can’t thank you enough for your patience. Even with the madness of this year, we are still unquestionably committed to Axon Punk and have been making progress all along (ya know, between medical emergencies). Here are some updates about where we and the project are:


Colin’s Health Update: Colin had a serious seizure in September and the doctors thought he might have a brain tumor. Thankfully, after more tests, they concluded that what they saw on his MRI is actually scar tissue from some previous brain injury that has already healed. Scar tissue like this is not uncommon and can cause seizures, so the diagnosis is “focal epilepsy”. It’s basically the best diagnosis, but the epilepsy diagnosis comes with lots of lifestyle changes and medication, which is slowing Colin down. He’s working through it and improving every day.


Cameron’s Health Update: this is kind of more awkward and much more formal than I am used to doing. Colin prefers to express himself through text. I am dealing with ongoing anxiety complex post-traumatic stress disorder and other physical issues. Thank you for your concern.


Axon Punk Update: With all these updates, we are working through reassessing our production timeline. Colin and Cameron have had our own issues, but 2020 has been hard on everyone and Axon Punk is a team effort. We super appreciate every single of you backers and want to give you a solid timeline that we will stick to. As we finish working through the links in the chain, we expect to have that timeline for you in the next 2 weeks. Fortunately, all of this is weirdly insightful to Axon Punk and we’ve been writing/playtesting this whole time, so we are really excited to give you something extremely special.


Sending gratitude and you will hear from us again soon!

P.S. Also, our website cashed recently, but Cameron did an awesome job of getting it back up. He/We are working through a rebuild/update on the site as well, so y'all will have a clean, shiny, new website to check out before long as well!

Pre-update - Proper update coming soon!

Hi backers!


We hope things are going well with you. It's been a while since our last update, but we want to reassure you that we're still alive and holding up alright. We're working on an update for the project now and it will be out in the next few days. Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding during this tough time. We'll be in touch soon!


Sending our best!

Axon Punk Campaign Stream starting 10/29! Catch it live 6-9pm EST!
3 months ago – Tue, Oct 27, 2020 at 09:00:21 AM

Hello friends!


Hope things are going well with you all! We have some exciting news that will give everyone something to look forward to this week: the live campaign of Axon Punk on Encounter Roleplay! Details:


Axon Punk campaign stream on Encounter Roleplay, starting this Thursday (10/29) from 6-9pm EST! Watch it  on Twitch here!


The team over at Encounter Roleplay has been putting in lots of effort to prepare for the campaign. Check out the preview art below and hopefully we'll see you there on the stream live! 

More art of characters:

We are super excited to watch the campaign unfold. Mitch, from Penny for a Tail, is running the game for an all-star lineup, so we get to sit back and just watch the action. Mitch is an extremely experienced streaming GM, so look forward to having the chat involved with the game as well as awesome give-aways during the game!


Brain Health Update: Colin's (my) health is doing pretty well these days. It was a big slog to sort through insurance and getting appointments scheduled, but I have my MRI scheduled for November 6 and will be meeting with a neurologist on Nov 10 to discuss the results/plan for the future. Shifting from "emergency" to "ambulatory" care is a good thing, but slows everything way down. I'm excited to see how my brain is looking these days and move towards a proper diagnosis. As part of my post-hospital recovery, I decided to get myself a few new orchids. I've collected orchids for the last 10+ years, but I haven't bought any new ones for myself in about 4 years. I got a Oncidium Sharry Baby (my personal favorite orchid), Oncidium Tsiku Marguerite, and a Paphiopedilum Maudiae Lady Slipper.

Orchid and other plant in-door grow setup at Colin's apartment in Chicago. The new orchids are in the black, square pots.

Thank you all for the support and hope to see you on Thursday at the kick off of the campaign!

Post-campaign Week 4 Update - let's talk Cyberpunk!
4 months ago – Sat, Oct 03, 2020 at 03:11:26 PM

Hi friends!


Thank you all so much for you kind, supportive words on our last update - we super appreciated them! So far things are cautiously going alright with Colin (me). I've been spending a lot of time recovering from the seizure and the hospital trip. We're waiting on the next round of tests to see how the brain lesion changes over time. So far, no new seizure activity, which is a good sign. We'll see what happens and keep you in the loop. Thanks again for all the positive energy!


We have been chipping away at Axon Punk and doing some fun work while we can. For example, this week both Wrong Brothers got to be on a really cool "Talking Cyberpunk" panel held by Mildra, the Gaming Monk. The panel included Mark Everglade, who is a cyberpunk author and spearhead of "Cyberpunk Day" (coming 10102020), as well as Optimistic Chad from Fraggin Unicorns Games , who recently wrapped up Gangs of the Undercity. Check out the video below, and join us in the Monastery to talk about fun things like "What is cyberpunk?", "What makes something 'punk'?", "What would a frontier *punk game/story be like?", and more. It was really fun to bring up old experiences from Cameron and Colin's youth as grimy skater punks, as well as talk serious cyberpunk literature with the other guests.

Thanks again, Mildra, for having us on and doing such a great job as a moderator! You brought some really cool and thought-provoking questions. We look forward to doing more with him at the Monastery.


Have a good week and we'll see you on Cyberpunk Day next Saturday (10/10/2020)!


Best,


Colin and Cameron Kyle,
