Neofeud, developed by Hawaiian writer, artist and game dev Christian Miller (also known as “Silver Spook”), is, as the title suggests, a point and click adventure game set in a dystopic near-future Coastlandia. You play (err, click) as Karl Carbon, a cop that was fired for disobeying an order to shoot an unarmed robotic civilian. […]

I’ve always been partial to the megacorporations in cyberpunk fiction. They are ominous, brooding, reptilian, unwavering in their ethics (or lack thereof) and almost omniscient. They pervade the broken-down countries that require aid only to then profit off the back of poverty and cheap labour whilst enforcing a near militant stance. They are the big […]

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 […]

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 […]

[line] How did you go about starting the Cyberpunk game jam?  Did people show an immediate […]
