CD Projekt RED made a lot of promises with Cyberpunk 2077. The studio failed to deliver on most of these promises with the launch of the game.

Nadeshot invited 100T Producer & Game Designer Spenser Starke to create a cyberpunk world for them. Since the actual game is way too long and extremely boring for an audience who’s watching it on stream, the 100 Thieves gang tried to spice it up. The trio created its own world, picked a character each, and set out on their own cyberpunk journey.
