The Roleplaying Game of the Dark Future


The Corporations control the world from their skyscraper fortresses, enforcing their rule with armies of cyborg assassins. On the Street, Boostergangs roam a shattered urban wilderness, killing and looting. The rest of the world is a perpetual party, as fashion-model beautiful techies rub biosculpt jobs with battle armored roadwarriors in the hottest clubs, sleaziest bars and meanest streets this side of the Postholocaust. The Future never looked so bad.

But you can change it. You’ve got interface plugs in your wrists, weapons in your arms, lasers in your eyes, bio-chip programs screaming in your brain. You’re wired in, cyberenhanced and solid state as you can take it to the fatal Edge where only the toughest and coolest can go. Because you’re CYBERPUNK.

Cyberpunk: the original roleplaying game of the dark future; a world of corporate assassins, heavy-metal heroes and brain burning cyberhackers, packed with cutting edge technology and intense urban action. Within this book, you’ll find everything you need to tackle the mean streets of the 2000’s — in a game system that combines the best in realistic action and playability.

    • Genesis Descent is a Cyberpunk project licensed by Angus Abramson (late of Cubicle 7). We haven’t heard anything more about it since Angus left C7 and we’re in the dark as much as you are. Sorry.

  1. I have to say that you all changed my life as a kid in the 80’s – the game rocked! – and it led me to read Gibson, Sterling, Rucker, Neal Stephenson, and Mick Farren and opened an entire view of the future for me. If you’re ever in Detroit or attending a Con, I’d love to buy you a beverage. -Doc-

  2. I have a couple of questions. First, I noticed Cyberpunk 2020 back in in your store, but but not the Fuzion system Cyberpunk 203X, released back in 2005. Does this mean you’ve essentially abandoned that version? And, what does this mean for those of us who want to upgrade or characters to Fuzion rules in Cyberpunk proper?

    Secondly, assuming that 203X hasn’t been “completely voided”, When the Fuzion system first came out, I picked up the Bubblegum Crisis RPG books to convert my characters to, long before 203X came out. And there is one thing in the BGC character creation rules that I found “missing” from the 203X rules, namely the “Complications” which granted characters extra CPs at the cost of phychological, physical, or societal “issues” which could adversely affect the character in game. Was this a deliberate choice? and can the Complications rules be implemented in Cyberpunk 203X? Pretty much all of my characters require them, as each has major real “problems” built in, and a number of them are older, more experienced characters (one is a US Army Delta Force Command Sergeant Major), with a good number of higher level skills, and very long life paths, in some cases.

    Third, assuming that 203X has been voided, is there any chance of a new Fuzion version of Cyberpunk, even a Fuzion version of CP 2020, coming out?

  3. Hello!
    There will be a newer version of the tabletop rpg of cyberpunk, thanks to CDPR?
    I ask because online I haven’t found many others cyberpunk-themed tabletop rpgs and the first versions (CP2020 and CP203x) may be outdated at their core mechanics.

    In short, it would be wonderful news if there actually is in program a new cyberpunk with an update to the core mechanics.
