Cyberpunk 2021. Which should obviously come way before Cyberpunk 2077. And so it shall be!

This game deserves my money just because it's being made with love and the attention to the audio is so good. I value audio design as much as the graphics, in fact, I value even more. A game with poor graphics but amazing audio design is better than a game with amazing graphics but poor audio quality. In my opinion anyways. And this game have both

Really like the look of this! Finally a new point & click adventure that neither sports pixel art nor looks like a Flash game. (I do like pixel art, but I also like some variety).

Though of course the big question is how the actual puzzles will turn out. I'll sure be finding out come release day :-).

Wishlisted, this looks (and sounds) indeed really nice. Also very nice to have a scenario involving Berlin :)

Yeah, me too, but the developer explicitly said that it's Neo Berlin, not Berlin. (Quite East Asian, this Berlin. ;) )

Thanks for the note. I guess it won’t make much difference to me, just reading the name sometimes will I guess be enough to let the scenery feel somewhat familiar :)

State of Mind is also set in Berlin, but given that there aren't any big outdoor levels, it's not really recognizable. And Lost Horizon has a single chapter taking place in Berlin of 1936, with some famous landmarks on display, too.

As for the Asian vibe, I guess there's a latent fear that Asia will eventually become technologically and culturally superior, and that seems to rub off on cyberpunkish settings. Or it might just be a genre thing.
