You remind me a little bit of Terry Pratchett and I mean that in a good way. If there's a type of *mancy that plays around with expectations, this is something that Pratchett excelled at. His works would often play around with high-concept yet very meaningful jokes which sort of had a life of their own and lived beyond their humour value. I feel like Extreme Meatpunks Forever is a bit like that.
It throws you into a bizarre, somewhat post-apocalyptic(?) Biopunk world of strangeness without any explanation. It treats you as though you're a resident of this world and you already understand most of what's going on. It challenges you to adapt to the craziness around you. The characters talk in something reminiscent of Millennial/Gen Z text-speak and while that might seem strange to someone today, it's not at all a stretch to think that the vocabulary of tomorrow could be formed from that culture. If nothing else, it's meant to appeal to it.
It's not meant to "make sense" in a contemporary sense because it isn't contemporary—it's an extrapolation. Good Sci-Fi does this. It's like windows on spaceships, yeah? If, for whatever reason, a Sci-Fi lacks them then people complain as they expect the setting to be familiar. Even though there are many reasons to skip having windows in spaceships. I certainly could go over all of the reasons but a cursory googlin' into a show like The Expanse would cover most of the bases.
I mean, when people think of Sci-Fi they think of anime robots or jet fighters in space. They don't really think of myrid digital life forms existing within a network of dyson spheres designed to house virtual realities as that's a much more resource efficient way of living than most others and it'd extend the life of the Universe by not having most life living in very resource inefficient ways.
A lot of people don't do well with this sort of thing though, if even one strange concept is implicitly included without a duly exasperating explanation to make it all simple and objective? They bounce off of it.
I find the questions fun and I welcomed the chance to adapt to this gay disaster world.
I think it might come from being neurodiverse, downtrodden, traumatised, dysphoric, abused, and having the introspection to recoil in existential terror at the things I've been through but I'm not shaken by something like Extreme Meatpunks Forever. To the contrary, I'm excited by it.
I'm hoping in one upcoming episode we have an Otherkin-adjacent character who identifies more as their meatmech than they do as themself, and doesn't enjoy getting out of it to interact with people as a human. I'd love that. I mean, that's how I am myself—Otherkin—and it's always wonderful to see any kind of representation for those like myself. A Universe such as this one is as good a place as any.
Just a passing hope, anyway. Thank you for a great time! I had been watching someone play this but I've now bought it myself to have a bash at it and because I want to support you.
