"The plastic keys beneath your fingers are transfigured into the plastic grip of gun in your hand. You stare deeply into the screen and your reality merges with the POV. You stare down a poorly lit street, sirens in the distance, and a robot three times your size steps into the frame. With no fear, you raise your gun and rain bullets down on the robot's chassis."

In this section, you will find news, reviews and analysis of cyberpunk games (PC to tabletop, RPGs to CCGs).

Cyberpunk’s “high-tech, low-life” mantra is where Primordia fits in very well. It is a point-and-click game with a bundle of puzzles and fun conversations between two quirky characters. You play as a robot called Horatio Nullbuilt and its trusty droid Crispin Horatiobuilt (built by Horatio, unsurprisingly) in a post-apocalyptic world. They live alone in the remnants of […]

I had the opportunity to play Metrocide before it was released just before Christmas and I liked what I saw.  Great cyberpunk visuals, a well-built city as your concrete playground, and game mechanics that couldn’t be more suited to the genre; highly recommended.

Metrocide will be released on Monday 15th December (so soon!) and Neon Dystopia had a chance to play the latest build just before it goes live on Steam. In a nutshell, Metrocide is a great little game with elements that should appeal to Cyberpunk fans and roguelike-lovers in equal measure.  The dark visuals, atmospheric audio and tense […]
