‘The city’s asymmetric pulse surges through its grids.
Thousands are lost and you are no exception.
But the pulse does not cease. Neither the city’s nor yours.’
Welcome to Metropo with its gleaming spires and forgotten depths. A city so vast and dense it almost feels alive. Artificial or otherwise, its denizens struggle with familiar heartache and tackle questions we are only beginning to ask.
This ‘slice of cyberpunk life’ collection takes us into the hearts and minds of these denizens, presenting eight stories from the lives of those in the unending city.
