When Mike Pondsmith was writing the first Cyberpunk game back in the 1980s, he didn't think he'd predict as much of the future as he has.

"From cyberware to instant communications and massive corporate control, we've got it all now," he says.

"The only thing we don't have is flying cars, which is really what I was hoping for.

"But we do have an awful lot of Cyberpunk stuff going on in the real world and that's why I think the genre is popular again today."
