Whereas Cyberpunk focuses on technological advancements as a whole, Nanopunk is largely Nanotechnology based.
Nanopunk shares similar concepts around mutation or biologically advanced like Biopunk but unlike Biopunk it doesn't change the genetic structure to mutated/re-evolved a being instead it let its nanobots to bio-physically change the lifeforms biology and appearance.
Examples of classified confirmed or claimed references to Nanopunk in fiction
- Transcendence - Has a main Nanopunk-based plot point near the end of the film. Some people treat this as the first mainstream example of Nanopunk in cinema.
Nanopunk video games
- Deus Ex - The series did not want Biotechnology in their games, so they have Nanotechnology as augmentation for the player.
- Crysis trilogy - The main protagonist is a nano-biotechnology modified spy who uses his abilities for stealth.
- Generator Rex - Has many Nano-biotech mutations or Nano-biotech modified monsters and few Nano-Biotechnologically advanced super-people dubbed "E.V.Os" fighting against each other for world dominance. The main plot is trying to find a cure for a Nanobot virus and trying to revert life back to the way it was before "The event" happens.
