EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER does punk better than any other recent game

It is very easy to dismiss 2018’s EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER’s visuals as just ugly. It's a hurdle I struggle with every time I try to convince people to play this excellent, as described by principal creator Heather Flowers, “serialised episodic visual novel slash mech brawler about gay disasters beating up neonazis in giant robots made of meat”. The way it usually goes is that I…

EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER’s third episode brings eldritch horrors, interpersonal conflict

Gooey mech brawler EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER was always going to capture my heart. Its first two episodes set the stage, introducing a shining central cast of messy, queer heroes and a killer premise: sometimes you just gotta hop in a big ol’ gore sack and pummel some fascists. These opening episodes deftly wove together a world where these four protagonists were always under attack, and…

Be a gay meat-mech-piloting disaster in EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER

Sometimes you get the itch to punch a fascist in the face. Heather Robertson's scrappy visual novel/brawler EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER respectfully disagrees; it's far more fun to maul them with a giant body-horror meat-mecha instead. Today, the first two episodes of this strange and lurid outpouring of anger, frustration and hope landed on, with the rest due by mid-September. I got to try this…

Brawl with meat-mecha in Extreme Meatpunks Forever

Four queer misfits living in a small desert town, making ends meet and trying to keep ahead of the half-witted fascist gangs that roam the streets. It's a simple enough and very contemporary story... Right up until you get to the sun disappearing, the town being somewhere in the 'Hellzone' and the fist-fights using giant biomechanical meat-mecha. Welcome to Extreme Meatpunks Forever, an upcoming visual novel (with…
