Key events

It's becoming increasingly hard to remember a time when we visualised our metropolitan future differently: no rain-polished streets reflecting the glare of neon signs, no fetid slums nestled snugly around imposing high-rises, no collective mass of humanity wearing the marks of economic oppression and state-sanctioned violence in their purposeless haste, their hunched postures, their fearful silence. In other words, it's becoming increasingly hard to remember how we imagined urban dystopias before the iconography of Blade Runner gatecrashed our collective consciousness and etched its initials on the concept.

Deus Ex writer announces Cell: emergence

PC and XBLIG based on voxels.

Sheldon Pacotti, the video game developer who wrote the first two Deus Ex games, has revealed his indie game, Cell: emergence.

Cell: emergence, due out before the end of September on PC and the Xbox Live Indie Games platform, is based on voxels. You pilot a nanobot through the body of a sick little girl, melting infections with self-replicating colloids, building shields and pathways with buckyfibers, and shredding germs with monofilament daisycutter depth-charges.
