Amazon announces "Cyberpunk dystopian mass-suveillance as a service".
I made a Deus Ex total conversion about ten years ago where you play a homeless socialist hacktivist trying not to get drone-striked in downtown San Fran outside of barbwire-walled billionaire enclaves or caught by the AI-automated robot police and thrown in the smartphone sweatshop. 60% AI/automation unemployment rate and global subprime meltdown redux.
Going to be streaming some of Terminus Machina tomorrow in honor of it being about five minutes from reality.
@silverspookgames Everything the tech industry does has an ulterior motive and it's usually "sell something to the cops and developers."
@silverspookgames They're even outright calling it "surveillance as a service." They're not even trying to hide their true motivations anymore.
@ND3JR Yeah the dark truth is really shining through there with "surveillance as a service".
@silverspookgames Invest in shotgun manufacturers.
@silverspookgames This Shadowrun LARP is getting out of hand...
if you want you can check the source in the tags, was good birdsite content
I need this in my life.
The game was my upbringing haha. I even ended up buying the last and first men (pretty sure it was called that...) later in life.
@personanonduvda Yeah, the original Deus Ex is my favorite game.
@silverspookgames I loved TM! I really need to go back to it and finish it (I locked myself out because I took the wrong skills, I think...) That song that plays in the hub is infectious! I'll try to catch your stream tomorrow.
@dona Hey thanks a lot for playing Terminus Machina and for the kind feedback! Sorry that I kind of made it pretty tough. If I'm able to actually beat it tomorrow you can use it as a walkthrough. :)
Also that song you're talking about is I believe District 10 and is over here if you just want to hear it :) https://silverspook.bandcamp.com/album/terminus-machina-soundtrack
@silverspookgames Yes, that's the track! I love it so much :D
I don't mind the game being tough, I thought it fit the theme quite well. The ONE time that I don't invest in hacking in a DX game and it blocked my progress, hahhaha.
@silverspookgames I laughed out loud at this, only to keep from crying because it's so true.
@silverspookgames I wonder how long we will have to wait before this will count as a documentary?
@TruculentSheep Pretty soon! Lol 😂 😭
@silverspookgames How much sooner can we hire hacker-elves to break into systems for us? I need some credits to get this cortex bomb out of my head, man...
New sport: Drone mooning!
@feonixrift XD 2025: After mass-drone moonings, drone butt-recognition gets so good Amazon delivery bots will deliver tanning lotion while you're sunbathing face down in the sand at the beach.
@silverspookgames I wouldn't be surprised if this where real, though I doubt it is. It does freak me out how realistic this seems.
would you please give the source of that? THX
@silverspookgames time to hunt them like new age cavemen
@silverspookgames I wonder how hard it is to DIY an AA-gun
@silverspookgames getting guns and shooting these out of the sky is not just praxis, it's necessary
ah yes, PSaaS (Police Surveillance as a Service)
it's a good thing the WD3 trailer dropped before this or else reality might have become unrealistic 🤪
@silverspookgames I don't get why people do this.. Post a link...
There goes naked sunbathing in the backyard....
@SaniTea Imagine having a summer bbq in the backyard and fifty Amazon drones are buzzing overhead taking video and audio recordings.
@silverspookgames Some chilling 1984 shit right there.
