Cloudpunk: Blade Runner meets The Fifth Element

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’ve just finished Ionland’s Blade Runner-inspired game Cloudpunk, where you play a new delivery driver in a neon-lit, rain-soaked city populated by humans and androids –  and colour me impressed.

I’ll write a review soon, when I’ve got my thoughts in order, but this post is really just to give you an insight into the absolutely stunning visuals of Cloudpunk, a game that really does look like the love child of the iconic movie Blade Runner (and, conversely, Westworld’s Blade Runner game) – with its neon-punctuated environments – and Luc Besson’s utterly brilliant movie The Fifth Element, where chaotic hover cars ply the congested skies as citizens move from point A to point B.

During my 16-hour play through of Cloudpunk, I just couldn’t help myself and stop to take screen shots and videos every few minutes, just to capture how gorgeous the game world is. I loved the game’s narrative and its storytelling (although it’s not perfect).

So until my review drops, soak in the visual splendor of the neon-dripping world of Cloudpunk.
