Punk's Been Dead Since '79 is a game about growing up in the darkest heart of the American Midwest.
Players are punks in the 1990s and early 2000s. Their life revolves around going to Shows and living the Scene. The game is about finding your place in a world that hates anything different, finding an identity in a society that craves conformity, and finding yourself in a subculture that can’t make up its mind about what it wants to be.
It’s about small towns full of religious extremists, violent rednecks, and equally violent punks. It’s about going to the American Legion Hall every other month in hopes of seeing Public Urine Nation play a set. It’s about making friends who understand your struggles. It’s about all these things and more.
