Who wants a biopunk JRPG?

More interested in that than in cyberpunk.

Bioshock would be considered a BioPunk game but,it's obviously not a RPG.

Is there a difference between biopunk and steampunk?

Be careful, man. The people on this board tend to flip out if you call their favorite FPS "not an RPG."

Biopunk is a sub-genre of cyberpunk, but more to do with, as others have said, DNA modification and such. Cyberpunk without the biopunk has more to do with hackers and themes like digitizing human consciousness, and body modifications on a purely physical level (androids as opposed to mutants). I associate a style of graphic imagery with it.

An example of biopunk would be the Hojo-related parts in Final Fantasy VII. In Hojo's lab, there are many genetically-altered creatures that have a fleshy, mutilated-body sort of look. Hojo himself becomes an example of biopunk near the end of the game.

Bioshock is biopunk, too.

Technically FF7 could be biopunk, as a chunk of the plot revolves around DNA of the Ancients, blah blah blah.
