New Cyberpunk Book

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.

With the direction humanity is going its pretty easy to get the cyberpunk asthethic, but what would be some polar opposite examples in society?(urban, not some random village in africa or something like solarpunk).

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.

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?

Cyberpunk - Mainstream?

i think culture has shifted due to all things cyber written and inked in the 70s-90s becoming mainstream. i mean, the matrix is /cyb/ af, and that was heavily funded by a big studio. cyberpunk effectively became mainstream. so much of what gibson predicted came true. some of it we're living due to hardware getting so cheap. i have scores of systems laying around that i can throw stuff on. phones are dirt cheap too. we're living it. Thoughts?

Noodle shop

There was a strange asian news show playing at a noodle shop I ate in earlier today. Half the screen was taken up by subtitles in fifteen different languages, and the anchors had the kind of engineered persona you'd expect to see in a religious recrutment video or a piece of wartime propaganda. I assumed it was created by some enviromentalist organization since the news stories seemed to revolve around animal rights (it was a vegan place and the owners where chinese so it would make sense that they would want to play that).
They where talking about disaster relief after an earthquake in japan when they said "The victims of the disaster where grateful to the supreme master for sending her blessing". I then noticed that the channel was called Supreme Master TV. Later on they had a montage of people from different countries singing about how the supreme master cured all their problems. All those subtitles? They where the languages of every country that has followers of the supreme master. I did some research on the supreme master later. She is a vietnamese spiritual teacher named Ching Hai. Turns out she founded the restaurant chain. I looked at the logo for the restaurant, it contains the supreme masters symbol. They where good noodles, would go there again.

the cola war

Federal District Judge Walter McGovern, who said he liked the taste of Pepsi-Cola today rejected a lawsuit filed to force the Coca-Cola Company to change its new taste back to its original 99-year-old formula. After the hearing, Gay Mullins, the president of Old Cola Drinkers of America, said the organization would file a suit within 30 days to restore the old Coke flavor. ''Today's suit was just to change the labeling, not to change the new Coke back to old Coke,'' he said.

LainOS/Copland theories

talking about what Lain would theoretically use:what she would use now is way different than the show. i think she definitely would [use bsd]. i think she would write her own tables and run openbsd like a madman. or run a hardened kernel of Gentoo compiled herself with use flags. Or maybe a version of Arch she could script to setup within minutes; small portable with limited attack surface. she would use whatever works, and throw away her work in an instant if she knew she could get more performance. her interest wasn't in protecting herself after all, it was in reaching as many as she could as fast as she could.

cyberpunk roguelike

I've been playing with the idea of making a /cy/ themed roguelike (or perhaps general turnbased rpg). What kind of character/npc types would you like to see in such a game? I'd like to add a bit more variety than just giving a future theme to generic magic abilities.

https://vimeo.com/179509486 "Sinofuturism is an invisible movement. A spectre already embedded into a trillion industrial products, a billion individuals, and a million veiled narratives. It is a movement, not based on individuals, but on multiple overlapping flows. Flows of populations, of products, and of processes. Because Sinofuturism has arisen without conscious intention or authorship, it is often mistaken for contemporary China. But it is not. It is a science fiction that already exists. ''
