Cypher is the kind of game that invites you into its world with its looks. The dark, gritty world of NeoSushi City is reminiscent of classic films like Total Recall and Blade Runner. It features beautiful art created by Carlos Cabrera, who previously worked as a concept artist on games like Section 8, F.E.A.R., and the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines.

It sounds like a cyberpunk fan’s dream — and it certainly looks the part — but there’s one thing about the game that makes the level of artistic detail surprising: it’s a text adventure.
