While we wait for Cyberpunk 2077, and its custom wang technology, why not indulge in some old school, pixelacious, point-and-click adventuring with VirtuaVerse.
Developed by Theta Division and published by Finnish metal record label Blood Music, VirtuaVerse is a point-and-click adventure that takes place in a not-so-distant dystopian future where most of society lives out their lives in virtual reality. You play as Nathan, a smuggler of modded hardware who is one of the few people with the ability to see the real world via a custom headset. After his girlfriend, Jay, disappears, and he accidentally breaks his headset, he must hit the mean neon streets and set out on a technoquest involving hackers, hardware graveyards, digital archaeology, and “cryptoshamans” to find her.
If you’re into cyberpunk, artistically lit pixels, and nerdy trivia, or are just searching for something to fill that Sierra-shaped hole in your life, you’ll be into this.
