A Kickstarter campaign has made Cyberpunk 2077 a board game.
Cyberpunk 2077: Gangs of Night City offers a unique twist on the low-tech, high-life world that Mike Pondsmith and CD Projekt Red have brought to life.
CMON Games will publish the game. They have published board game adaptations of God of War, Bloodborne and other IPs.
If the short, slangy description of the game on its Kickstarter page is any indication, it is clear that its creators are very fond of the source material.
"Cyberpunk2077: Gangs of Night City" is a competitive game where 1 to 4 players play the role of ruthless criminal gangs fighting for control of the Night City underground.
As your brave, entrepreneurial band of toughs tries to take control over the criminal underworld ruling the streets, you can clash with other gangs on the net or in the meat.
Street Cred is the key to success. Only the bravest will be remembered. This game's aesthetics and fiction are more in line with Cyberpunk 2077, published by CD Projekt Red.
It is not a riff on Cyberpunk RPG source material that Mike Pondsmith wrote. This board game is packaged with a stack of unpainted plastic miniatures resembling the characters in the video game.
Among the approximately two dozen plastic miniatures that will be shipped with the game, players can expect to see Jackie Welles and Johnny Silverhand.
The project has nearly tripled its $100,000 funding goal at the time of publication and is now just short of its final stretch goal, with only 10 days left in its campaign.
The current funding level is $110, granting you access to all the miniatures and the core box.
While we understand that unpainted plastic can be hard to resist, the current shipping timeline doesn't begin until at least eighteen months after the end of Kickstarter.
So it's possible that shipping will be delayed, just like Cyberpunk's digital version.
