10 Virtual Cities cities revealed!

Tuesday, 22 May 2018

Thank you all for the wonderful, heart-warming support!

The Virtual Cities atlas, this artful, and very cartographic journey through gaming's cities would never be possible without the love you have shown it (and us). Honestly, thank you!

The campaign is already approaching the point of being 50% funded, and I'm certain that by spreading the word even further, we'll be hitting 100% very soon.

Now, you should have noticed that City 17, *******, Kamurocho, New Vegas, Silent Hill, Antescher and Lizard Breath will be part of the atlas, and you may have also noticed that certain versions of Hong Kong, and New Orleans have been mentioned too. So, allow me to clear things up regarding the latter, and to reveal more regarding the book's contents with the help of this here list of game cities we have already started mapping, and are actively working on:

    New Orleans - Gabriel Knight

    Hong Kong - Shadowrun Hong Kong


    Rubacava - Grim Fandango

    Dunwall - Dishonored

    The City - Thief

    Midgar - Final Fantasy VII

    Citadel - Mass Effect

    London - Assassin's Creed Syndicate

    Anor Londo - Dark Souls

I'd absolutely love to see Novigrad from "The Witcher 3"! I think it would be a great addition to the book!

Awesome stuff so far!! Love that Yakuza Kamurocho is going to be in this book! Would be awesome to see a city from Shenmue aswell, maybe Dobuita or even something bigger like Wan Chai from Shenmue 2!!

Awesome! Looking great :). I'd also like to quickly mirror what James said particularly about Dobuita or Wan Chai from Shenmue 1/2. Those cities were so alive and ahead of their time in so many ways.. I'd just die of happiness if they were included ;). Keep up the great work!

Sorry for the double post haha.. but also as Daniel mentioned Novigrad would also be a fantastic addition! It's the most exciting city I've experienced since Dobuita/Wan-Chai. I walked around it for many hours marveling at its complexity, architecture, etc. Cheers!

Not sure if you're taking city suggestions, but since everyone else seems to be offering them ... Columbia from Bioshock: Infinite? Looking forward to seeing whatever set you end up with. :)

While everyone's suggesting cities in here I thought I'd say that Hekseville from Gravity Rush would be a great choice.

Bowerstone (Fable), USG Ishimura (Dead Space), Bright Falls (Alan Wake) and Citadel (Oblivion) would be great additions!

I agree with Matt Gee about Bowerstone from the Fable series. I would also like to see one of the oldest Game cities Hyrule Castle Town from the Zelda series preferably from Twilight Princess.
I hope this awesome project will get more attention and supporters.
