This is your first night working for Cloudpunk, the semi-legal delivery company based in the sprawling city of Nivalis. You go everywhere, from the Marrow below to the spires that pierce the grey clouds high above before scraping the edge of the troposphere. No delivery job is too dangerous, and no one is faster than a Cloudpunk driver. In this story-based exploration game, you will meet a diverse range of characters including androids, AI and unscrupulous humans at every level of society. Everyone has a story, and in the course of one night in Nivalis, everything will change. Expand

    Cloudpunk is obviously a game made with great love and care. It shines through the visuals, the soundtrack, the city, and most especially the characters. Huxley, Camus, and Ben are easily some of the characters in any video game yet released in 2020. The gameplay is not particularly deep but it is solid and enjoyable in its relaxing way. While Cloudpunk does have a few minor faults (mainly the camera), none of them detract away from what is otherwise a wonderful experience. Get your multipass ready, it’s time to go for a ride.

    Cloudpunk is simply the best way to wait for Cyberpunk 2077 with its gorgeous city, its intoxicating atmosphere and a very well-written adventure. A must play this spring.

    A huge city in a state of entropic decay to explore, a diverse and memorable cast to meet, and an engaging new spin on adventure game navigation make for a highly compelling sci-fi experience in Cloudpunk.

    Cloudpunk is a beautiful cyberpunk adventure when it comes to exploring the city and knowing every little story among its neighborhoods and sky roads. It is a shame that some of its gameplay mechanics are not funny or coherent. Ultimately, the game is worth it for the lore, the characters and the story that will motivate us to play until the end.

    Like some of the narrative choices, it’s hard to know how to feel about Cloudpunk — and maybe that’s the point. It’s well-written and lovingly constructed, but it’s sometimes hard to appreciate as much as I’d like to thanks to the pacing issues. However, despite the problems, it’s definitely a journey worth taking — just go into it knowing that a little patience in some spots is required.

    In the gameplay department, Cloudpunk simulates the boredom of a minimum wage job a little too well. Looking back, I’m happy to have played Cloudpunk, but I never want to sit through it again.

    For Cloudpunk, hardship is merely the wallpaper for a pretty yet thinly conceived gaming experience.

    Have played for 5 hours. Great atmosphere, visuals and sound, fun texts, no shootings or fights - just relaxing and fun storytelling, great work!

    I'll start with what the game does right.
    The visuals are amazing, I could spend hours just looking around the world, finding beautiful screenshots round every corner.

    The characters are well written and the voice acting is spot on. A personal favourite of both myself and my audience is Camus, your dog/car

    The world building is done through conversations with both people on the street and 'Control', your handler and the person who sends you jobs.

    The one thing I don't like about this game is the camera while you're on foot. The forced angles almost seem sometimes to be doing their best to disorient you. In your HOVA the camera is locked to behind the vehicle while you're driving about and that's fine (would have like a free camera here as well but it works so that's more of a personal niggle).

    This game is poorly optimized, frying up my GPU, no matter how very good it is.

Wait till its actually worked on with updates before buying. Once the optimization is done, this is actually a pretty strong game to be purchased at full price, with excellent visuals, each and every district really well made. The story and everything is actually secondary to me, but its surprisingly good, feels lived in. Expand

    Pretty but tedious and boring. Story has no focus or tension, filled with pretentious dialogue and pointless characters with terrible voicePretty but tedious and boring. Story has no focus or tension, filled with pretentious dialogue and pointless characters with terrible voice acting. Gameplay is non-existend, exclusively drive von point A to B. Would have worked as a form of walking simulator with a good story, which it hasnt. On Foot sequences are absolutely terrible, slow, wonky and with camera issues. Don't bother playing this just for the atmosphere, you will be bored pretty fast. Expand
