I'm looking for an RPG setting that is contemporary (near future)- mechanics/system is not a consideration.
I want to run a campaign in a world inspired by the ideas in "Pattern recognition" by William Gibson. There is a sentence that he utilizes that describes the idea I have in mind very well: "the future is now."
Another good point of reference would be the movie "Gravity".
As pointed by a comment the book called "Halting State" fits this idea too. I didn't read this book but its Wikipedia page has a sentence that say it all "It features speculative technologies, including Specs and virtual server networks over mobile phones."
All the scenarios I have read that have their worlds situated in the present era are either fantastical due to mystical reasons (vampires, occult, etc...), or they are too contemporary, i.e. not different from our actual world.
I would accept and welcome the use of technology in a setting as an excuse for fantastical elements.
An example of what I have in mind would be the world of Mage: The Ascension with only the technocrats, or Eclipse Phase situated before the fall but with a similar level of technology.
Another way to express what I have in mind is to imagine the world we could be living in five to fifteen years. With smart phones incredibly powerful, democracies put in check due to heavy protests, shared economy is a strong concept in the economy (the influence system in Eclipse Phase is perfect for this, for instance). Technologies like google glasses, electric cars, smart houses, quantum computing, space tourism and others became possible and wide spread.
Again, I am primarily concerned with the background- ideas of campaigns, ideas for the world, character creation. I just don't mind which system mechanics.
