You ready for some style over substance? This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we get chromed up and check out the two earliest iterations of R. Talsorian’s premier RPG, Cyberpunk 2013 and Cyberpunk 2020. We talk a bit about cyberpunk as a genre, look at the particular (and surprising) inspirations for the RPG and dig into the fast and deadly system. There’s the obvious comparisons to make between Cyberpunk and Shadowrun, so you bet we make them, too!

One thought on “Cyberpunk

  1. Pondsmith was also really influenced by 80’s anime/Japanese comics in his design for the first generation. I think deep down it’s like Lupin 3rd in near sci-fi. See also Mekton and Teenagers from Outer Space.
