Neuromancer's William Gibson On MEG 9: Lost Echoes

You know how sometimes you find yourself thinking “I wonder what William Gibson, author of Neuromancer is doing right now?” I think about that a lot.

Anyway, it turns out that he’s been quietly working on the setting for a game called MEG 9: Lost Echoes [official site], which just hit Steam Greenlight.

The game takes place largely within a dimensional tear discovered by your employer, a multinational corporation called Quantum Multiphasics who I can probably rightly assume are secretly mega evil. Remotely piloting an upgradeable rig, your role is to explore a high-tech complex that’s mysteriously gone dark and is now infested with these weird bio-mechanical bug things. You also basically get a robot dog.

Skunkwerks Kinetic plan to launch MEG 9 into Steam Early Access later this year. It’s still early days, but have a look:
