Here we have a funny scene from the game Neuromancer (1988)*, based on the novel of the same name by the renowned Cyberpunk author William Gibson. It also features music of the band Devo as part of its soundtrack.

*Shot from 1989 Amiga version

Yes, we know (and I bet you’re good with Photoshop ).
The average screenshots from Neuromancer found on the Internet are downright quite ugly.

A game based on the archetypal cyberpunk novel, with music by a cult band, and a funny screenshot. Sounds interesting. Is it any good?

It was well reviewed at the time, but I’m not sure how many modern players would like it. It requires lots of note taking as much of the game involves communicating with other hackers on BBS systems to acquire logins and passwords to various computer networks as well as hints and clues to bypassing various security systems.

It also has a minor RPG feel to it in that you need to make money and acquire better hardware and software to advance in the game. One funny way to make money is to sell your organs and body parts.
