In this cyberpunk future, nothing is as it seems.
Spinnortality, the solo cyberpunk management sim effort from James Patton, is out now on PC, and it looks totally daunting.
The game takes place in a dystopian society where super-states are ruled by dictators, some are capitalist wastelands, and all of the societies are in “flux,” as the official description puts it. You step into the role of a megacorporation whose goal, first and foremost, is to make money. You’ll do this by manipulating policies, launching black ops and spy campaigns, and just about anything necessary to turn a profit.
“The idea that corporations are pretty much the aristocracy of our time has always fascinated me, especially with recent developments in world politics and capitalism. With Spinnortality I wanted to play with that concept and show how much power they could assemble, the corrupting influence of it, and what might happen once they attain absolute power”, said James Patton, developer of Spinnortality, of his challenging new game.
“I was thrilled to see that the premise excited a lot of other people, and after the successful Kickstarter last year I can’t wait until players can finally dive into the world of Spinnortality.”
The game’s currently available via Steam for the brave souls who wish to try it out. See if you’ve got the soul of a wheeling and dealing executive in you and give it a spin!
