You may have heard the question before; “What is Cyberpunk?” Maybe someone set you a challenge, instead; “Try to define Cyberpunk.”  It’s one of those things that divides people. It’s likely that you, or whoever is being asked, went one of two ways. What is Cyberpunk?, Path #1 “Simple, really.  It’s where advanced technology meets the rough […]

Primordia

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 […]

Recently I took a Youtube trip. I’m generally not a fan of those. I wind up watching too many videos about nothing and I’m left wondering where the afternoon went.

In his 2003 book, Pattern Recognition, William Gibson introduces us to Cayce Pollard (pronounced Case – anyone surprised?) who is a coolhunter. As described in the excerpt below, she is unnaturally attuned to emerging trends because of an allergy to brands, the same way that someone who is allergic to peanuts is hyper aware 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. The game has been out for a few weeks now and is currently […]

[block_grid type=”two-up”][block_grid_item] [/block_grid_item][block_grid_item] [/block_grid_item][/block_grid] Some photographers don’t even know that there will be fans of cyberpunk out there appreciating their work as pieces of cyberpunk art.  I reckon James Beyer is one of them as his city photography is something to appreciate.

It’s time for some more cyberpunk art from the depths of DeviantArt’s galleries, so power up your cyber-optic enhancements (put on your spectacles) and catch a load of this! If you thought that DeviantArt was solely for aspiring artists then you’d be off the mark.  One example can prove that it’s a place for professionals, […]

The Assassin’s Creed games are largely a mash-up of science fiction and historical fantasy, but the near future setting of Abstergo Industries is a very cyberpunk place, and acts as the backdrop for the entire video game franchise. There maybe some more cyberpunk aspects in the peripheral games, but I will be sticking to the […]
