I'm making a cyberpunk adventure game inspired by pc98 game aesthetics, snatcher etc.
I'm still doing my own thing, but I think that's the closest I can compare it to.
It's still way too early in dev to even show it off, but I'm workin on it.

I'd appreciate knowing what would you like to see in a game like that, graphic wise, gameplay wise etc. could be examples from other games.

I should mention that there is a supernatural element to the game, suehiro maruo/junji ito inspired stuff.

Add a skinny tower which has an elevator that takes you to the top and then flying ships underneath you and you have to jump at the right time or you get squished. Add phaser guns to shoot enemies. Add multiple planets and a market that you can buy things at and an open world option which lets you just go around and explore. Add ai's that talk to you like a VN. Add underworld. Add music. Don't use GTK!

What would be /cyb/ perfect room? Clustered? Full of wires?
I always wanted to make a room as similar to me as possible, so i could spend my entire day in it and enjoy it's aesthetics.
Post pics or describe specific things that you think it would make your room look nicer of possible.

Neon lights and colourful LEDs.
Some kind of anarchic work and tinkerplace occupying the room. The wires must come from somewhere afterall and the low life makes money recycling electronics, breeding something into marketable offspring, or having an oversized wildly modded together cpu dominating the room for some nefarious online sheme in its rented apartments or improvised hideouts.
If you dont have a hobby like that and are willing to life in the junk of all the shit you collected from your cities dumpsters or sustain a humongous electricity bill for a gamerPC set up taking up half of your room or a bunch of aquariums and lavalamps bubbling away with lit up liquids as part of an omnious trinket collection that will either gain you the admiration of your guests or many confused questions this might get somewhat complicated to pull off.
The coroporate jobber low middleclass or anyone with an officially listed income might life in prefab appartments where most surfaces are made of some stuff or plating that looks as if it was quickly assembled like IKEA furniture, most surfaces being in use for something as space is expensive in the 21th century. The less cramped places might follow a somewhat pleasant industrial design.
If you want your room to look from the inside like a 70s multistorybloc looks from the outside you need to commit seriously so it doesnt look hideously or ends up being a problematic construction and if you got a landlord this might end up not achievable.
Darkness and colourful lights, a careful selection of furniture(Steel cabinets?) and wallpapers or even concrete/rust optic spatula technique coatings for selected walls if your landlord is ok with it or you are lucky to own your four walls might take you to a desirable outcome tho.

Hi. Where do you think the best places are to promote my new cyberpunk book, Hemispheres? I won't pitch it here in respect for your space, but I have been developing my website and I need to test it to see how people are going to react to it before launch. https://www.markeverglade.com

My email is markeverglade.author at gmail dot com if there's any feedback.

Thanks!
Mark

Have you ever dumpster dived and picked up any schway shit? I built my first 2 computers out of parts I found on street.

>>210Lucky! I would love to find some great parts in some dumpsters around here. But I live in a small redneck town where no one ever even got into computers yet now everyone has to have a damn smartphone.The only interesting find I've ever had in a dumpster is a nice bowling ball that I decided to throw off a building and let it roll into oncoming traffic just out of sheer boredom.

One of the most cyberpunk things I can think of are alternative intranets. The biggest one I know of is in Cuba, called SNET.
Info: https://media.ccc.de/v/34c3-8740-the_internet_in_cuba_a_story_of_community_resilience
There are also examples of this in the DPRK. And, most recently, Russia has been supposedly planning to cut itself off the global Internet (https://www.pcmag.com/news/371347/russia-is-about-to-disconnect-from-the-internet-what-that-m), although I very much doubt they will. I remember reading it wanted to do this in partnership with other BRICS countries, and make another "Internet" to counterbalance the West's influence and power on our current one, but there wasn't much interest from them.

Do you think things might still get worse in the near future?

In the meantime, I suggest you guys start running LibreMesh (https://libremesh.org/) with cjdns (https://phillymesh.net/2016/04/21/cjdns-on-openwrt-part-3-installing-configuring-cjdns/), in case worst comes to worst.

This is the Wearable Computing group, MIT Media Lab in 1995. Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) were close to impossible to get so most of it was hacked out of (analog!) display kits, videocam displays or expensive entertainment headsets. Fast forward 20 years and affordable HMDs are still a pipe dream. The bags carry the Single Board Computers and batteries. They are similar to the Pi/Arduino/Beagle, which are widely available these days and very much affordable. Input is usually done by a chording keyboard like the BAT or Twiddler (Jeld by the guy far right. I believe the company that makes it is still around.)

If you are interested, look for archives of the USENET group comp.sys.wearables.
