June 19, 2019 – We all are looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077 which will releases in April next year. And you can even call Beyond Good and Evil 2 a cyberpunk-esk game we are looking forward to. But what other Cyberpunk games will be releasing this year or the next one you should keep in mind? In this special we will introduce you to five games with a Cyberpunk theme.
First of all. What is cyberpunk? Wikipedia describes it as follow:
Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction in a futuristic setting that tends to focus on a combination of lowlife and high tech featuring advanced technological and scientific achievements, such as artificial intelligence and cybernetics, juxtaposed with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order.
So with that in mind. Let’s take a look at five games that are worth following.

The soul of a cinematic platformer and the heart of a sci-fi thriller, The Last Night is set in a post-cyberpunk world with a deep, vibrant vision of the future. The Last Night is a post-cyberpunk – it’s not the kind of dystopia the genre is famous for, rather it depicts an alternate direction for society. One where the fight for survival doesn’t mean food and water, but a purpose for living. Human labour and creativity has been rendered obsolete by AI, so people are now defining themselves by what they consume, not what they create.
You play as Charlie, a lower-class citizen who can’t interface with the systems and augmentations of the world around him, due to an accident during his childhood. He’s a citizen of the thriving metropolis and yet he’ll never be a part of it. Then, a chance encounter offers him the chance to be part of something else and take matters into his own hands.
