Cyberpunk Crossover

this page is very incomplete at the moment....




In view of the dark and bleak yet fast paced quality of Cyberpunk, it is not surprising that the Cyberpunk mythos has been crossed with a similarily bleak but alluring mythology, the vampire.

Two examples can be mentioned here.

Microprose's Computer Game Bloodnet (ironically one of the few cyberpunk games available on 'puter - and even then it is not pure cyberpunk!)

web pageBloodNet - a good review by Jeff Pack,

printed reference The Cyberpunk Alternative Reality Universe RPG - Incorporates the vampire mythos.  Some good character development.

Lovecraft - Cthulu mythos

Personally I find Lovecraft heaps more interesting than vampires, but that is just my own preference

web page Fallen Future: Cyberthulhu Gaming - by Sandy Antunes - integrates Chaosium's "Call of Cthulhu" system witha  cyberpunk future reality, with a module set in Baltimore in the post-2000 era. The timeline sets up a possible world for Cyberpunk/Cthulhu adventuring.   Includes some links.


Shadowrun is a popular role playing game that combines Cyberpunk and Fantasy-type sorcery and characters

links to be added here....

Cyberpunk-Magial Realism

The only example of this (but still very popular) is Jeff Noon's novels Vurt and Pollen

Cyberpunk-Space Opera

Space Opera is set in deep space.  Cyberpunk is generally not about outer space (except for space stations in near-earth orbit).  The idea of cyberpunk is that things will come to a head long before man explores the universe.  Nevertheless, here are several cyberpunky (in a fashion) novels set in space (or involving outerspace)

books Bruce Sterling - Schizmatrix
Walter Jon Williams - Voice of the Whirlwind
                               - Angel Station
