For this week’s Switch Kickstarter Project of the Week, we will be looking at Insert Disk 22’s Born Punk. Here’s the description:
Born Punk is a point & click adventure! It’s a cyberpunk adventure! It’s science-fiction too! Now that the buzzwords are out of the way, let us explain this in a less sensational manner: Born Punk is a game in the style of the 80s and 90s point & click classics like Monkey Island, Gabriel Knight and Beneath A Steel Sky, that wants to deliver an intriguing storyline and logical, non-outlandish puzzles – which admittedly, were a bane of ye olden games. We want to combine the best of both worlds, the old and the new: keep what made point & clicks great, and replace what made them tedious. Last but not least, Born Punk is a love letter to hope: even though cyberpunk traditionally is a dark and edgy genre, we firmly believe that most forms of popular sci-fi (and cyberpunk is definitely part of sci-fi!) delve too deeply into ‘depressive territory’. Whilst we are here to tell a story about tragedy and strife, we also want to tell a story about how in the middle of despair and anguish, there’s always an acorn (or even loads of them!) of hope to be found.
Born Punk is scheduled to release in January 2020 on PC, mobile and consoles (which of course means Nintendo Switch). The project requires AU$14,000 and is currently sitting at AU$1,690 with 29 days remaining.
