A narrative- and puzzle-driven cyberpunk pixel art point & click adventure in the style of 90s games. Coming for PC/consoles/mobiles.

Check out the Demo on Kickstarter here.

View the gameplay demo video here (if you don't wish to play yourself).

Quote:
Born Punk is a point & click adventure! It's a cyberpunk adventure! It's science-fiction too! Now that the buzzwords are out of the way, let us explain this in a less sensational manner: Born Punk is a game in the style of the 80s and 90s point & click classics like Monkey Island, Gabriel Knight and Beneath A Steel Sky, that wants to deliver an intriguing storyline and logical, non-outlandish puzzles - which admittedly, were a bane of ye olden games.

We want to combine the best of both worlds, the old and the new: keep what made point & clicks great, and replace what made them tedious. Last but not least, Born Punk is a love letter to hope: even though cyberpunk traditionally is a dark and edgy genre, we firmly believe that most forms of popular sci-fi (and cyberpunk is definitely part of sci-fi!) delve too deeply into 'depressive territory'. Whilst we are here to tell a story about tragedy and strife, we also want to tell a story about how in the middle of despair and anguish, there's always an acorn (or even loads of them!) of hope to be found.

Choices and consequences: often, it's possible to approach dialogs and puzzles from different angles. As a result, potential interactions with other characters, the difficulty to overcome certain obstacles, and the results of some actions will be slightly to majorly different.

A comprehensive cyberpunk universe: there's lots of background info to read and experience, which gets added to your PDA as you continue to interact with the gameworld. Lore nerds should be happy about this! Sometimes, in-game lore will also serve as a gameplay mechanic.
Full voice-overs: every character in Born Punk and every line will be voiced. Our main character's voice actress, Linsay Rousseau, previously worked on Elder Scrolls: Legends, Fallout 76, Sailor Moon, and for Blizzard!
Cyberspace: the main character can enter the global net and surf through a VR world full of weird online personas and deadly counter-measure programs - meaning that the 'hacking' part of the game will be a much more wholesome experience than a simplistic mini-game or quicktime-event.

Music: The main theme and various other tracks are composed by Jeff Kurtenacker, composer of Wildstar and choral arranger of World of Warcraft. Jeff is joined by two other musicians (Jeff Miller, Javier Morales) to deliver a bombastic soundtrack. (see below for more details)

Graphics/Animations: our graphics and animations are done by Indrek Plavutski, formerly of Wadjeteye's Blackwell: Deception! We try to capture the charm of the 90s, and mix in neat particle effects from today.
Veterans and newcomers welcome: Born Punk will not cater purely to nostalgic purists nor to hyper-modern tastes; we don't try to dumb things down to appease a streamlined gaming market nor are we trying to make things needlessly complicated just to stay true to the classics.

Let's be serious, it's funny: it's cyberpunk, but with a hopeful, often humorous undertone. Point & click adventures without at least a bit of humour are unthinkable!


Happy Gaming!

This looks cool, I always enjoy cyberpunk themes. I like the character who has a cocktail glass in place of a hand. Pretty much sums up my college experience. lol
