I’ve had it with these punks. They maintain strolling as much as completely different genres and flashing them with their neon lights and messages about rampant consumption. The most up-to-date offender is Cloudpunk, an upcoming driving/strolling/chatting simulator about delivering stuff for a dodgy firm in a cyberpunk metropolis, the place you go spherical listening to the woes of “androids, AI and unscrupulous humans at every level of society”.
Come and coo on the trailer with me. There are some good synthy ‘shwing’ noises.
If you’re going ‘ooh, like in Snow Crash‘ then: sure. It is like in Snow Crash:
“Become a courier driver for Cloudpunk Inc., the semi-legal delivery company based in the sprawling city of Nivalis. You go everywhere, from the Marrow below to the spires that pierce the grey clouds high above before scraping the edge of the troposphere. No delivery job is too dangerous, and no one is faster than a Cloudpunk driver.”
Developers Ion Lands say you’ll jaunt in regards to the metropolis utilizing each hover automobile and legs, unravelling “mysteries in a world of corporate conspiracy” and making selections that “will have a lasting impact on the inhabitants of Nivalis”. I simply adopted a hunch of my very own, and found that Nivalis means “snow-like”.
I like that the entire game takes place over one evening, and has you zipping round handing out presents and recommendation like an overbearing cyberpunk Santa. If these selections transform half as engrossing as that glistening metropolis, I’ll enroll with Cloudpunk Inc in a heartbeat. And I didn’t even like Snow Crash.
Cloudpunk is coming to Steam in 2019, the place you’ll be able to wishlist it in case you so need.
