The Game

Overall Game Concept: In Axon Punk, you and your friends play as a team of hackers, AI, engineers, cyborgs, and others that are trying to be forces of change as the great war of global inequality rages on the streets around you. The game’s theme, rules, art, and pacing are heavily inspired by hip hop and classic cyberpunk. Because the game is set in the hyper-dense megacities of the future, the players together create a Community of locations and fellow city dwellers to interact with during the game. Based on the choices the players make, the Community will produce missions, give rewards, and evolve over time – or it could be consumed by the chaos and anarchy caused by futuristic corporate oppression.

Goal: Imagine playing a game that feels like Cowboy Bebop, but if it was set in a world like Blade Runner or Ghost in the Shell with hip hop music and rhythm. Musical influences include Janelle Monáe, Saul Williams, Deltron 3030, Erykah Badu, MF Doom, Mos Def, Santigold, Wu-Tang Clan, N.W.A., Tupac, Public Enemy, and many many more.
