Time for a cyberpunk spin on the typical "wasteland" mindset. Beneath a Steel Sky is largely set in a dystopian future where the good old Earth has been ravaged by pollution and nuclear fallout. After the destruction of civilization as we know it, society has been reduced to "city states" and wouldn't you know it? They're all warring. You follow Robert Foster, a child raised by Indigenous Australians, who are soon killed off and Foster kidnapped to be taken back to Union City. Foster uncovers the corruption in the city while gradually adjusting to his new life. We're not envious.
