Featuring cyberpunk-inspired pixel art, Born Punk is inspired by point-and-click royalty such as Beneath a Steel Sky and the Monkey Island games and contains all the staples: puzzles, humorous dialogue and a slapping soundtrack. If this piques your interest, below is a thorough synopsis of the game thanks to Steam.
A former combat hacker, a corporate CEO and a malfunctioning android get possessed by mysterious, otherworldly entities and must band together to save themselves and uncover the entities’ origins. Talk, puzzle and explore your way through this (often humorous) cyberpunk thriller. Bornholm. Today, a quaint island in the Baltic Sea. In 2155, a sprawling metropolis able to compete with major world powers. Thanks to the Space Elevator, a technological marvel built by Bornholm’s corporate consortium, The Conglomerate, few nations on the planet are more influential both in industrial matters and space exploration.
In Born Punk, the player slips into the role of three people (well, two people, depending on your stance on artificial lifeforms) living on the island: Eevi, a corporate combat hacker turned bartender down on her luck; Mariposa, the CEO of Bornholm’s biggest corporation; and a malfunctioning android who calls himself Grandmaster Flashdrive. The three characters have one thing in common: they all, one after another, get possessed by strange entities of unknown origin and even less known intentions. They must work together – and sometimes against each other – to find out of the nature of those beings, what they want, and why they seem to think that their ‘mission’ is of vital importance for the future of humanity.
As a big fan of point-and-click adventures and having sampled Born Punk previously, I am keen to get my hands on the full release this June. If the above sounds like something you’d be keen to play, you can check out the demo for Born Punk on Steam.
