Blame! and Netsphere Engineer are mangas that take place in a world where hypertech construction robots went out of control and kept building cityscape for who knows how long. Since they developed a means to generate matter from nothing, it's speculated that the megastructure (which started on Earth) encloses the sun and extends to the orbit of Jupiter. People live in a maze of tunnels and mindlessly churning factories and try not to run into vicious 'silicon life' or the deadly descendants of the ancient security systems.
Ah neat. Never heard of those mangas before but sounds like a great idea all the same, like the World's Largest Dungeon except sci-fi or sci-fantasy. Heh, can you imagine shooting your way through an army of robotic security drones to secure the only known source of a rare elixir... that turns out to be a carbonated soft drink?
