Punktown is a setting book for both Call of Cthulhu and Chaosium's Basic Roleplaying (BRP) system, based on the fiction of Jeffrey Thomas
It is being produced as the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign run between November and December of 2012.
The setting is described as "haunting, dark, cyberpunk city ... Picture Blade Runner, The Fifth Element, Minority Report, Total Recall and the rest of the dark, not-too-distant-future genre. Now add aliens, mutants, and robots."
The book will explore the city itself, the alien races, the weaponry, the creatures, mutations, cybernetics, drugs, sanity (and the inevitable loss thereof), and the option of adding the Cthulhu Mythos into the mix. As written in Jeffrey Thomas' work, the mythos is already there, threatening life as Punktowners know it, but whether or not to use that element is left to the individual gaming groups, and their preference.
Scenarios: Scenario 1, Scenario 2, Bonus Stretch-Goal Scenario (Barrass)
