Game and Story Use

  • Many Cyberpunk and science fiction adventures involve action and combat scenes in tall buildings. Vertical farms provide a way of making the terrain for firefights more interesting and tactically challenging.
  • Almost certainly a feature in the arcology or city planet.
  • A vertical farm might not contain just food crops. Recreational drugs, parasitic plants, plant monsters, or pests might all have hitch-hiked or been deliberately introduced.
  • Might be a partial recovery of urban prairie.
