Great review Neuromancer! I love the suspended prisons image. Have you read the book as well perchance? I’d be interested to know how closely it matches.

Neuromancer said:

Thanks!
You can read the short story it was based in in the link at the top of the review. SciFi.com has permission to reprint it so you should go there.

To my knowledge(I haven’t played the game) the game is completely faithful to the short story, and serves as a sort of alternate ending. Harlan Ellison himself wrote all the scenarios in the game, so it is completely authentic to the original story’s mood and themes.

The short story is VERY disturbing and dark, truly a cyberpunk nightmare, and apparently the game is just as dark. Doesn’t surprise me, considering it’s from the same company that made Darkseed. The game’s won quite a few awards, too.

By the way, the website Home Of The Underdogs(http://www.the-underdogs.org), a website dedicated to honoring games which weren’t popular when first released, has a cyberpunk category with some GREAT games for full download, including Beneath A Steel Sky and(*GASP!*) NEUROMANCER! The IHNMAIMS page in the website has a link to Harlan Ellison’s official site, from which you can buy the game very cheaply, too. The website also has TONS of great games for free download, so go check it out!

I just remembered what darkseed is I had totally forgotten about it untill reading this review and now I must go and fire up the old amiga emulator :)

Game only uses the basic concept of the short story (not a book). And even though the character names are the same, most of their personalities and backgrounds are changed (well, they didn’t have much of a background in the story).
Excelent game.

Also, the story is available online

I remember this game somehow, like from when I was a little kid or something.
The picture with the pedestals is eerily familiar.

Wow, glad this game is reviewed here.

I love this game very much, precisely because of the story, the atmosphere, the haunting music, pure cyberpunk horror. The story is immersive, as well as the characters, it’s breathtaking.

Although I’m an adventure-games lover I found some of the puzzles odd and extremely hard, but once you get past them you add up the clues and all the metaphors joined together all create the most unique atmosphere in a game I ever experienced.

This game can still be played, the good folks that developed ScummVM (avaiable for almost every OS out there) made that possible. Grab your copy of ScummVM and download the game from the-underdogs and have a blast.

Most of the Lucas Arts games and those who use the same engine work with the emulator. Go have fun and get immersed by this true epic!

there was a mac version. you can find it.. (and even if not, there are BILLIONS of emulators for PCs out there, (vmware server is free for one) and now the new version of SCUMMVM the interpreter for mondo adventure games is multi-platform (even have a version on my palm!))

you obviously have never seen it. Not only is Harlan Ellison a great writer, the “game” is not about video at all. It’s about thinking.

well as a huge fan of horror games I think its safe to say I’ll be checking this game out, and to the guy who despaired because he had a mac fear not, you can run a virtual windows installation on a mac no problem and play games that way

O Wow I remember reading the short story for the first time back in the 70’s .. it blew my mind then,,never forgot it.. Harlan Ellison is an awesome writer..do you know that he wrote an episode for the original Star Trek. . I would be interested to check out the game.. I used to like playing video games like this where you had to type in commands or questions.
