Finally—this is my fictional universe I’ve referred to in mysterious allusions for years.
What you’re going to find on this website:
- Background information on the Voidpunk world narrative
- Blog posts with behind-the-scenes reflections
- Progress reports on individual Voidpunk projects
As mentioned on one of the Universe Cards, this fictional universe was conceived as an idea already in Spring 2015. That was a long time ago! What I’ve been working on since then includes world building; writing the first (episodic) novel; sketching the rule system for a tabletop/pen-&-paper RPG; outlining two follow-up novels; and drafting the first tentative conceptual game loop for an indie game I would like to tackle the year after next.
That’s where those six years went: into Voidpunk as my own present and future IP!
The first actual content, the episodic novel, will commence in 2022 (hopefully—I’m fixing to pitch an agent right now). I could have finished this novel much earlier, but I had to suspend work on it until I had sketched the rule system for the RPG—technology, physics, weapons, ship classes, all kinds of stuff—in order to not mess anything up in the novel that I would later regret in the game.
This website, voidpunk.com, I set up and built over the years during brief lulls in my work schedule. Turns out that was a good idea, all things considered. I wouldn’t know where to squeeze that in on top of everything else right now.
Anyways. Welcome to the Voidpunk Universe! I hope you’ll enjoy it. And don’t forget to subscribe either to my RSS channel for your feed reader, if you have one; or one of my Twitter accounts (@gyokusai or @voidpunkverse); or my Sunday Newsletter on Hey.
