Neotech Edge is a remake of the Swedish cyberpunk role-playing game from the 1990s. The game's authors have worked with the game for more than 12 years. The drive has been "how would the cyberpunk genre look if it was created today?"
The game is set in the future, year 2070. Climate change has changed the world map and there are many refugees throughout the world. Corporations rule and the masses fill their empty lives in the virtual reality called "the Layers".
