We're super excited to announce that we have finalized a publishing agreement for Arcon: City of Neon Daylight,
co-created by Kienna Shaw (@KiennaS
) and Jason Cutrone (@JustJasonPls
), with print copies expected to be available around Q4 2021.
Arcon is a systemless setting book that delves into a new interpretation of cyberpunk for the modern age. Not only does it examine what draws people to the cyberpunk genre, but also its own city and organizations for you to explore.
The project is currently being funded on Itch.io
, where you can support the developers and help expand out the current book and develop a new rules-lite system to play in Arcon. The expansions will be part of the printed book, and the rules-light game will be a seperate zine-style product.
"Ever since the hype of Cyberpunk 2077, I've really wanted to dig my teeth into the genre and really understand what makes it tick, we're happy to bring Arcon into the Metal Weave family becuase it does just that: It desconstructs what is cyberpunk while providing a new and intriguing setting to dive into."

"We're very excited to be partnering with Metal Weave Games and to be joining the family of other amazing creator-led products. We're more than confident that Arcon will continue to grow and thrive in this partnership, fulfilling a dream of doing a print run that we never could have imagined before!"
