Cyberpunk – More than High Tech and Low Life

Han Cilliers from MWEB GameZone takes a look into the Cyberpunk genre and at Cyberpunk 2077's potential to deliver a game true to the culture.

The essence of Cyberpunk has been summed up in these few words, “high tech and low life” by many. It sounds like a fairly straight forward genre, yet it is easy to misrepresent. It’s not only about future tech, sleazy cut scenes, and crooked cops. Many video games have paraded under the banner of cyberpunk but, missing the subtleties of the genre, have failed miserably to capture its dark heartbeat. (Culture, Cyberpunk 2077, Mike Pondsmith)

I am really really excited at the prospect of this game coming out. I used to play the pen and paper Cyberpunk RPG game and I loved it (glad the chairman of R Talsorian Games is involved!), so to get the opportunity play the video game is going to be a great opportunity to do some reminiscing of the early 90's. Plus, I am also a fan of the William Gibson novels that pretty much put this genre on the map.

It looks like Pondsmith knows what he's talking about, and R Talsorian Games certainly knows how to deliver a triple A game. Excite!

I never played the previous games, but was always fascinated with the Gibson look on the future, so to have a game about it, makes me a happy camper!
