''[[http://www.dystopia-game.com/ Dystopia]]'' is a {{Cyberpunk}} themed [[GameMod total conversion]] {{FPS}} of ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'', created by an amateur development team (now ''Puny Human Games'') and released to the public for free.

''Dystopia'' places the player into tense combat situations in a high tech world spanned by computer networks. As either Punk Mercenaries or Corporate Security Forces the player will fight through the physical world to gain access, via jack-in terminals, to {{Cyberspace}}.

Cyberspace is a three dimensional representation of the world's network. Inside cyberspace players will launch programs to [[HollywoodHacking hack]] into systems linked to the physical world while fighting off enemy hackers and defending critical systems. Gameplay progresses through inter-linked physical and cyberspace objectives, some are completed in either the physical world or cyberspace, others only by a well timed combination of the two.

Global Warming has been halted, at the cost of the atmosphere now being filled with UH-4, a compound that is carcinogenic to life.
