Finally, an expression of the cyberpunk genre other than Neuromancer that does not make me cringe. Cloudpunk is about labor, class, society, and the tension between the individual and the whole. Themes you’d expect but delivered thoughtfully. It’s the story of the long night shift of a first time flying delivery driver in a rainy megalopolis. The story is delivered through dialog as you drive back and forth (and up and down) through the stratified labyrinthine districts occasionally making impactful choices. The city is packed with kind, strange people and their heartbreaking stories. Raina’s journey could be a tighter, but it’s worth the ride.
