If you don’t know about Cyberpunk 2077 then I highly recommend you go and watch the trailer for the game. Based off Mike Pondsmith’s popular pen and paper roleplaying game known by the slightly different name Cyberpunk 2020. The game appears to stay mostly true to the original, being set in the same location and seemingly having the same dark gritty feel, and in this video Mike explains why he felt that CD Projekt was the best developer to choose to handle the IP.
Pondsmith says that the thing that attracted him most to the company was the fact that they were fans of Cyberpunk to an almost fanatical extent. He felt safe that whatever game they made would remain inherently Cyperpunk and not ‘Something that uses the Cyberpunk name but is an entirely different game’. Watch the video below to hear all of what he had to say, or just enjoy some excellent footage of the city that inspired him to create Night City.
