Cyberpunk Games

Digital: A Love Story, by Christine Love, is probably my favorite "indie" game of 2010. The interface may be a bit clunky at times (a lot of number dialing and you hear the modem sound quite a few times), but the story is absolutely worth it. It's also chock-full of references to cyberpunk in general and Neuromancer more specifically, and evokes the whole "console cowboy" thing pretty damn well.

I'll edit this post tomorrow (and by "edit", I mean "write") but in case anyone wants to try out that game I'm putting this short blurb up now.

I haven' gotten very far in this yet (just contacted Emilia's brother), but what I've seen so far is pretty cool! Is the writing this good in all indie games?

Christine Love is kind of amazing; she just released a new (free!) visual novel called "don't take it personally, babe, it just ain't your story" and while I don't think it's as good as Digital, it's pretty good.
