Cloudpunk (2020) is a cyberpunk adventure where you play Rania, a delivery driver for the illegal company Cloudpunk. You navigate the city in a flying car to get to your destination in time. Sometimes you are transporting people and sometimes it's a package. You get out of the car at the destination to find the exact address and can take the chance to poke around the futuristic underworld.
But unlike straightforward delivery games, Crazy Taxi
springs to mind, Cloudpunk is as much about the world and the impact of what you are delivering as a mere race to a destination.
During deliveries, you may notice the package is ticking on the back seat. Do you still deliver it? Or you might realise that the item you are delivering may result in dangerous action by the recipient. These overheard aspects of life interweave with other characters' stories that you can collect from around the city.
Over the course of the game, you meet a range of characters, including androids, AI, and humans at every level of society. You slowly piece together the moral fabric of the society and the dark undertones of what is really going on. All the time you have your loyal companion dog Camus by your side.
