The Weekly 072: Cyberpunk Red Miniatures Game, Bestselling RPGs of 2020 and the Baggage of Cyberpunk

Cyberpunk Red will have a skirmish miniatures game called Combat Zone produced by Monster Fight Club. This is the same company that produced the miniatures for the Cyberpunk Red tabletop game previously. We review the list of best selling “other” (non-5E) TTPRG titles on DriveThruRPG in 2020. The results may surprise you. Finally, we discuss the baggage of the Cyberpunk genre, more specifically the portrayal of Asian culture and stereotypes. There is also a Cyberpunk by Asians Game Jam currently running on Itch.io that may also bring new perspectives to the genre. “Western cyberpunk media borrows heavily from Asian visuals and fetishizes Asian culture, without the involvement of actual Asians. This game jam is for Asian creators who want to make our own cyberpunk games.”
