(We were on Steam Greenlight back when that was a thing. I’m in the process of moving the game to Steam proper.)

In an alternate future, the backbone of the Gank, Colorado hackerspace wake to find the Internet out. Completely. Rather than sit around and wait for it to be restored, they decide to enter the streets of Gank and break as many heads as possible until they can turn it back on.

Cyberganked is an upcoming character role-playing game (CRPG) with text adventure elements. The graphics use the same four-color palette as the Color Graphics Adapter (CGA) did for the IBM PC/PCjr. Cyberganked has a cyberpunk or splatterpunk vibe to it. If you enjoyed Bard’s Tale, Might & Magic and Wasteland, I think you’ll like Cyberganked.

Here is the trailer:

Cyberganked is written in Hugo, a text adventure language that has support for graphics. Cyberganked is a character role playing game with some text adventure elements, but would fit into the turn-based blobber style of game. I’ve previously released a graphical text adventure (without many RPG elements) called Cryptozookeeper on Steam, which was also created using Hugo.

I don’t have an ETA for when Cyberganked is release at the moment, but I have a good, well-defined list of remaining tasks and work on it almost every night in order to get it to the finish line.

If you’d enjoy reading the blog articles I have written about development, just click here. And lastly, here is the Twitter account for the game. I also talk about it on my forum, in the base for game deelopment – here is the link.
