So how about that Cyberpunk Renaissance, eh?

First we got DXHR, now Syndicate. What next, a Neuromancer game?

My tg-related question is this: if someone redesigned Cyberpunk 2020 to be more modern, flexible for different kinds of cyberpunk gameplay (GITS-style action, Syndicate corporate resourcing, Shadowrun infiltration, etc.), would you buy it?

Does anyone remember the Interlock system for Cyberpunk 2020? Does anyone here like it?

Don't forget Hard Reset which, despite being a mediocre game, is probably the prettiest in that early-'90s-dark-future way. Worth trying the demo on the Steam just to see it in motion.

Oh, and Prey 2 is looking pretty darn sexy too.

Mmmm I didn't even know they were making a Prey 2, I thought I was the only one who even played the first one... But yes, I am feeling a sort of Cyberpunk Renaissance, it's one of my favorite genres up there next to Noir, Cosmic Horror, and Post-Apocalyptic.

Anyhow, as to whether I would buy an updated Cyberpunk 2020, probably. Depends if I thought I thought could run a game like System Shock in it.

Boy are you in for a treat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tvkt0QNboSk&hd=1
The graphical style is somewhere between Space Precinct and Blade Runner. It...works!

And by the sounds of it hopefully the gameplay will be competent enough: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/09/28/prey-2-interview/

Ok, wow. Never got into the first Prey, but definitely picking that up.

And watching Space Precinct again.

I do like this cyberpunk resurgence. I'd hold off on calling it a renaissance however.

To call it a renaissance you'd have to see some new ideas being incoporated with cyberpunk.

It's more of a reemergance of Cyberpunk. And alot more modernized as opposed to the over the topness you saw in things in the 1980's

I was raised on snippets from William Gibson's stuff. As a kid my dad told me about gangsters with nerve gas and chameleon suits, cyborg assassins and the like. I got hooked on the stuff when I was around 14.
The subculture is also making a comeback, especially on Tumblr weirdly.

As consolation, cyberpunk tits.
