One is not born, but rather becomes, a body.

Glitchspiel is a rules-free ttrpg zine in the free kriegsspiel style, expanding on my essay "Lovepunk" in the first issue of the FKR Collective's zine In Play.

In this text, I deploy Glitch Feminism, Legacy Russell's manifesto, as a game, using her remarkable words as tactics for a transformative, reparative cyberpunk that cuts against both the norms of cyberpunk as a genre and the constraints of tabletop roleplaying as a form.

The project successfully funded on Kickstarter on February 16 as part of Zine Quest 3, thanks to the generous support of 120 backers. I am also happy to report that because of the sucess of the campaign I was able to get additional copies printed, which can be purchased below.

Usurp the body. Become your avatar. Be the glitch.

Print Zine

The physical edition of Glitchspiel was printed by Mixam with a sleek 100lb matte-laminated satin paper cover that is just wonderful to hold, and 80lb uncoated pages that strike a perfect balance between durability and usability.

Your $20 includes the cost of shipping, as well as physical copies of my pamphlet rpg Skin & Stars and my business card safety tools BufferingFor each additional copy of the zine that you would like to order, add $10 to your payment.

Please make sure your itch.io account is attached to an active email address, because I will be contacting you at this address, which is included in the details of your payment, to get your shipping information.

As someone who was quite inspired by Lovepunk, sufficiently so to acquire a print copy of Glitch Feminism, I was gutted to miss out on the Kickstarter.

Will definitely be looking to get the PDF when it is available to non-backers and hopefully there will be another opportunity to get physical copies at some point (Zine Quest 4?).

Hi evangineer! Sorry you missed the Kickstarter, but I will keep you posted on whether or not I have extra print copies once I get details back from the printer. Thanks for checking out the project!

If there are not extra print copies, I purposely ordered more so I could share them with people who would appreciate this type of material as well. You seem like you would, so I'd be happy to arrange something with you once I get my print copies.

Very kind of you @frnz!
