VirtuaVerse looks shockingly good and has an awesome soundtrack to go along with it and it's out now with same-day Linux support from Theta Division.

Possibly one of the most stylish point and click adventures I've seen in some time, and an incredibly intriguing setting too. Set in a "future not-so-far-away" because nothing seems impossible anymore, society has migrated over to the virtual world across a single neural network that sounds horrifying. You play as Nathan, an outsider living off-the-grid on a quest to find a missing girlfriend.

With a story and music from MASTER BOOT RECORD, you can listen to the soundtrack over on bandcamp and it's all kinds of amazing. 13 tracks of hard-hitting nostalgia that's hard to tear myself away from, absolutely amazing. The track names are great too like DDoS Attack and Keygen Assault—brilliant. I really can't overstate how good a soundtrack that is. Practically a masterpiece of heavy chiptune that blends in other genres.

Oh, yeah, there's the game too. VirtuaVerse. Did I mention the incredible pixel artwork that went into it? It has a coherent and very vibrant cyberpunk look that fits perfectly with the tunes. Not all of it is heavily detailed though but even when it's not, it's still some of the best pixel art in a modern point and click around.

You can buy VirtuaVerse on GOG and Steam.

Incredible soundtrack indeed. I'm still in the middle of TW3 playthrough, so will probably play VirtuaVerse after that. Bought it on GOG right away.

The Keygen musics. Yes it's the domain of piracy, but damn, there were some really good tunes!

I've been looking forward to this game for a long time! Playing through it now, and I love it! And I even suck at point and click games.

Plus the developer has gone out of his way to respect his end users:

1. Day 0 Linux build
2. DRM free options for those that want it.
3. The OST is available DRM free too.

Day 0 purchase for me.

It gets a million bonus points from me for “My Lorraine 500”.

Great music and seems to have a really neat atmosphere. However, I'll hold off on buying and wait for a few more reviews about it's qualities as a point & click game bfore I decide.

If it can stand up to classic Lucasarts & Sierra games in the genré, then it's a must buy.

Just yesterday finished Blade Runner (1997) and now this dropped

Technobabylon also recommended for genre fans!!

It really looks and sounds gorgeous. I'm more excited for this game than for Cyberpunk 2077.

We're having a cyberpunk renaissance this year, and I'm loving it.

Yeah, just bought too! Amazing support and hopefully the game stands to the music as well

As I have a strict limit on GOG purchases, I'll wait a little on this one (maybe there will be something better).

But the music is good, so I've got myself a copy on Bandcamp (Love that site! Top-notch DRM-free service!).

Yes, absolutely! Though with the drawback that it does not come with native Linux support.

Another one that's different in style, but thematically also quite fitting would be State of Mind. That even runs natively.

VirtuaVerse is certainly something I want to play. So far I had only seen screenshots, and they looked somewhat uninspiring, but seeing the game in motion in the linked video quickly changed my mind. And the soundtrack!
