Retropunk Sci-Fi RPG Up On Kickstarter

We're in the future, everyone. Pretty much every movie I watched as a kid that took place "in the future" without being the super-future, we've passed it by. So what is futuristic is retro. Hence, Retropunk. That's where you head in this sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Retropunk is a tabletop roleplaying game where you embody characters in a futuristic hybrid reality. The digital and the physical have merged. People navigate their daily lives in something beyond augmented reality by way of a neurochip implanted at birth. The characters in Retropunk have hacked their neurochips in a way that lets them navigate hybrid reality just like everyone else, but disables monitoring from the system. They use their anonymity as armor while they fight against the corporatocracy which controls urban sprawls that span countries and continents. One of the player characters' goals in Retropunk is to take resources away from those in power and to use what they take to sustain and grow their resistance, taking on more powerful factions that facilitate these megacorporations vice-like control. 

The game's around 5x funded (being fair, they weren't looking for a lot) with still 15 days left to go.
