In the far distant future, a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changed the world as we knew it. As humanity entered this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains. Highly resistant to conventional attack methods, extreme measures needed to be taken to battle the overwhelming threat and preserve humanity.–Scarlet Nexus Official Website
While not branding itself explicitly as cyberpunk, Scarlet Nexus nevertheless features many ideas and concepts that borrow from the genre. So we think it is definitely at least cyberpunk-adjacent and of interest to fans of the genre. And it certainly looks the part, at least.
