cyberpunk but instead of asking if body mods make you less human and answering no, it asks if working for a corporation makes you less human and the answer is yes
@Lore i saw a video about the world building in Cyberpunk 2077 that I thought was interesting. He talked about how all the employees in this hotel have gold chrome skin, and what that says about the company and the society, without ever having some npc clumsily exposit, "boy it sure sucks we had to replace our skin with gold plating in order to be allowed to earn a livelihood!"
Obviously the game has a lot of other problems both technical and social, but I think that's neat.
@Lore "it asks if working for a corporation makes you less human and the answer is yes" had been part of cyberpunk poetics since its earliest beginnings. The cyberprep lore they sell us as "cyberpunk" today is just the result of keeping to beat a long dead horse.
Hometown is adapted from Mastodon, a decentralized social network with no ads, no corporate surveillance, and ethical design.
