Everyone is doing their E3 announcement before the actual expo these days. One of these billings was CD Projekt Red’s annual Summer Conference in which the company detailed more about their GOG.com website and development ventures.
First and foremost, a new RPG from the makers of The Witcher is inbound within the iconic Cyberpunk brand. If this name rings true, it’s because that term to this day defines the genre it represents. The pen and paper RPG Cyberpunk 2020 from Mike Pondsmith will be made with the same quality in mind as with The Witcher franchise. Pondsmith stated: “Over [20 years] we haven’t found the right team to bring our cyberpunk world to full digital life — until now. CD Projekt Red is the team we’ve been hoping for.”
It’s a very ambitious project. We can’t wait for further details. In the meantime, the publisher is hiring for this game, so any interested parties can head on over to the CD Projekt Red site.
On the GOG.com front, the site that formerly only dealt with older titles added a few new indie titles to its roster. After the earlier announcement of anticipated point and click adventure Resonance, GOG.com will now also take pre-orders for indie darling Retro City Rampage. This retro title mashes all possible genres and references into one crazy game filled with parodies. Grand Theft Auto, Back To The Future, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Super Mario Bros, Smash TV; no known classic or trope is safe from this 80’s throwback. This announcement comes with a second preorder reveal called Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers.
Additionally, GOG.com has added Tomb Raider 1 + 2 + 3 as a trilogy pack for $9.99. More so, it also put up Sid Meier’s Colonization for $5.99. This game is a sort of spinoff from the popular Civilization franchise, except here players are in charge of pioneers discovering the New World. It’s definitely worth a try.
Lastly, GOG.com is actively pursuing the recruitment of indie developers. The email address WeLoveDevs@gog.com has been created to give aspiring developers a leg up into reaching a large audience.
