What Is Cyberpunk?
Trying to define Cyberpunk is a difficult task. In short, however, Cyberpunk refers to both a culture and a genre.
Cyberpunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that features advanced science and technology in an urban, dystopian future. On one side you have powerful mega-corporations and private security forces, and on the other you have the dark and gritty underworld of illegal trade, gangs, drugs, and vice. In between all of this is politics, corruption, and social upheaval.
