Help! I'm Addicted to Cyber Drugs in a Dystopian City

I didn't ask to be born, but I was. I'm not an entrepreneur, revolutionary, or politician; I'm just a person, and not a great one at that. I don't care about the Martian Wars or corporate actions. I just want to survive.

Turns out survival is pretty tough, so sometimes I load some shock to take the edge off, so what? It hasn't blown out my neural augment yet. If I can just make enough to afford that, rent, my AI, and food I'll be content. That's all I want.

But then I met a girl...

Welcome to NYC in the year 2216! There's a one world government, corporate oligopoly, and a colony on Mars, but all I care about it using my augmented brain to process shock, a digital drug that creates a beautiful trip out of stored memories and experiences.

Have fun! Or, well, do your best!
