Dreamspace is an animated cyberpunk comic-presented-as-visual-novel/adventure-game by artist Cryoclaire (potentially NSFW; artistic nudity) about networked psychedelics, consciousness expansion through underground social networks and gorgeous trippy neon GUIs.

I was reading a sign high on the wall behind the bar: ‘Only genuine pre-war British and American whiskeys served here.’ I was trying to count how many lies could be found in those nine words, and had reached four, with promise of more …

Does it matter where you click?

The artist is obviously capable of much better, as seen on his/her tumblr page, so why is this all so horrendously ugly? It sounds like the sort of story I'd enjoy, but it's just too retina-searing to stay with.

No. Each gif links to the next page.

Well, first off it's not ugly. It's pretty gorgeously multilayered and electric. Secondly, maybe you think it ugly because it takes advantage of a purposely dated mid 90's aesthetic as a part of its storytelling?

Genuinely impressed by this. Was totally taken in by the loading screen.

That wasn't depressing at ALL. Damn, that is some true cyberpunk.

Now if you'll excuse me, my eyes ran away in pain, I need to go hunt them down.

Couldn't seem to get this to load on an iPhone. Am I just not patient enough?
