Most humans and animals in Blade Runner are cyborgs, compounding biological processes, industrial refitting, and artificial intelligence. Try to use Decker in place, because it does get confusing to distinguish the difference between an in-game hacker and someone who has "hacks" a.k.a. cheats. ===Meatspace:=== The "real world". But it won’t be a game about police hunting cyber-psychos.

I can't track down if Harry Vanda was the singer for Flash & The Pan, but he was born in The Netherlands and he sure sounds like he's singing on this one.
