Cyberpunk 2013 (and its second edition, Cyberpunk 2020) is a tabletop role-playing game written by Mike Pondsmith. CD Projekt RED is currently developing the video game Cyberpunk 2077 which is based on the tabletop RPG. Luckily, Pondsmith is involved in the upcoming RPG, so there’s a big chance that the digital game will stay true to its roots.
We still have to wait two years to be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 since it is slated to be released in 2015. The long wait is a good opportunity for newcomers to the game to get acquainted with Cyberpunk 2020.
Kids nowadays are probably new to the concept of tabletop games. There are no computers involved, no gameboards — just a book of rules, some dice, and lots of imagination.
A group of players has been cool enough to record themselves playing Cyberpunk 2020 and post the video series in Youtube. Their videos are fun to watch and the referee (or gamemaster) does a great job of leading the game. Their game actually makes me envious that I don’t have my own group to play with.
Here’s the first video in the series.
