Bigger, badder, stranger: Mike Pondsmith talks about the world of Cyberpunk 2077

It seems that CD Projekt RED are continuing the publicity blitz for Cyberpunk 2077 with full force. One of our users noticed a new video on Youtube, featuring Cyberpunk 2020 creator Mike Pondsmith.


City lights, fog, strangers passing by... Watch Mike Pondsmith the creator of the pen-and-paper RPG Cyberpunk 2020® and learn about his inspirations for creating a dystopian metropolis of Night City.

CD Projekt RED is proud to collaborate with Mike and bring this city to life in its upcoming RPG -- Cyberpunk 2077. The game will be set in the near future in which advanced technologies have become both the salvation and the curse of humanity. A multi-thread, nonlinear story designed for mature players (a CD Projekt RED trademark) will give players a chance to freely roam the open-world and visit places well known from the pen-and-paper RPG "Cyberpunk 2020®", including a combat zone completely taken over by gangs, the legendary Afterlife joint and the nostalgic Forlorn Hope.

The video starts with an interesting meditation on the nature of cyberpunk that seems almost like a swipe at Deus Ex. According to Mike, Cyberpunk 2020 was about "early cyberpunk" while Cyberpunk 2077 will be a "more mature form". Players familiar with the original setting will be able to see the outcome of various plots and themes that the original only began to touch upon. Apparently he's having a blast collaborating with CDPR - the man's definitely no Andrzej Sapkowski.
