About the Story

"Neo-Duluth, 2064.

It's 3:00 AM but you're not asleep, not tonight. There's too much at stake. You've taken off your eyePhones, but your SmartWall still pulses with a dim blue glow, almost as if it shares your restlessness."

An entry in the 2014 Cyberpunk Game Jam.

Editorial Reviews

The Gaming Intelligence Agency
ICE ICE Baby: Appetite for Destruction
Dystopia is a central component of cyberpunk. The genre revolves around a rejection of the old optimistic futurism, which held that advanced technology would usher in paradise on Earth. Cyberpunk is more critical, suggesting that any societal issues technology solves will only be replaced with different problems. [...] “A new day is coming,” says cyberpunk, “but don’t get excited.”

Unless.

Unless dystopia excites you. Unless you crave the idea of society gone off the rails. Unless ordinary life seems so dull and tedious and pointless that you can only stand it by dreaming of a crisis. This is the starting point of ICE ICE Baby, Andrew Vestal’s entry in the Cyberpunk Game Jam 2014.

Very clever story, June 23, 2016
Honestly I thought the writing and atmosphere-building was brilliant, and funny. The ability to click on highlight words for more detail was awesome.
Very enjoyable story!
