No.

Not in Dead Man Switch, the included campaign. Some UGC in the Workshop might have it, and it might turn up in the upcoming expansion, Dragonfall, but not in DMS.

God no and I hope never.

No romance options, though I'd imagine its possible with user created content.

If you like romance options, you might want to take a look at 'Loren the Amazon Princess' here on steam. Really silly name, I know, but a decent rpg with lots of player choice and more romances than you could ever want.

Cyberpunk with romance..... GOD NO! Please watch a chick flick if romance is your thing.

It can work - they just need to be careful with it. There's a trilogy of Shadowrun novels I've read that worked a bit of romance in between the female lead and one of her teammates. Didn't feel out of place at all.

There was some romance in Cyberpunk 2020 :P

not romance really but there is quite a lot of hotswapping and hotdocking if you play a decker

hotdocking? that sounds downright perverse.

Romance in cyberpunk just breaks down like the rest of the dystopia with the characters often replacing human lovers with A.I.s or clones and that's being an optimist. People in general are High-tech Low-lifes.

Then on the other hand in Bladerunner there's Deckard who falls in love with a replicant (synthetic human) who also returns Deckard's affection. I suppose that was romance. I guess with the right magical director/author it might fit in the genre, sure.

People can have sex without romance nor intimacy you know... Just look at PUAs. Romance can take place I suppose, but it'll be a bleak near future for said couples... It can be done but I agree that they have to be careful in using it. The society is dystopian rather than utopian after all...

Cyberpunk as a genre has often been used by authors to subtlety illustrate a moral and philosophical point/warning. One of which is that our civilization ought to develop its' humanity/spirituality at the same increasing rate we develop high tech otherwise we will degenerate and destroy ourselves and civilization.

Great setting for drama in fiction, horrible situation for real life.

Hopefully there's some in Cyberpunk 2077. It's CD Projekt RED after all.

What are you talking people? Of course it has romance in the later parts of the story. Although your character would not look at it that way, the other side does want you to have their babies ;)

Sex and Romance aren't quite the same thing.
