There's something so thrilling and electrifying about dystopian cityscapes — and this concept art of cyberpunk Paris totally hits our sweet spot.
This art comes from a new French PS3/Xbox game called Adrift, from the French studio Dontnod. No clue if the actual game will look this amazing, but we'll find out eventually.
Update: Commenter LotofSnow points out these amazing images are available on Dontnod's website in wallpaper size.
Here's the game's official synopsis and more concept art:
Augmented reality and memory manipulation have taken control of peoples' lives.
You can now digitize, buy, sell or trade your own personal memories. The last remainders of intimacy have been swept away, in what appears to be a simple extension of the development of social networks and geolocation at the beginning of the 21st century.
The "surveillance society" has been accepted by the citizens themselves, in exchange for a few technological benefits. It is a reality that no one even thinks of challenging anymore.
This memory-based economy gives an immense yet uncontrollable power to a handful of people…
I actually really like that concept, of taking social media into an extreme dystopian scenario. Wonder how they'll make it into an actual game?
