I'm working on a game that takes place in 2173 with some parts in the 2070's (at least the lore will) and the 2090's. Technology has advanced for example people can be placed in stasis but, this is almost never used. Most of life remains just like it has been since the 20th century. There are no truly intelligent AI's, space colonies, super soldiers, or domed cities. Aesthetically things don't look like most modern Sci-Fi, there are buildings with stories in the single digits, not everything is made of steel, and blue is not the only color of light. Is this future too primitive for people to believe for a non-post-apocalyptic world?
People laugh at past predictions of now, yet criticize a game set in the 2030's for being too primitive. The game may get a pass being set in a 3rd-world country but some people don't think those will exist in the future. What will people find more realistic, an optimistic view of future development or the more cynical one I described in the game.
