Kickstarter Highlight: Shadowrun Returns
« on: April 27, 2012, 10:31 AM »
Many moons ago, there was Shadowrun on the SNES and Genesis.  And it was good.  Now they're bringing good back... and it's better.  They are in the final stretch for this Kickstarter, and it's going to be great!  (Though I have an ulterior motive... I want physical adepts!)

Shadowrun Returns
Goal$400,000 ($1,628,975 as of this posting)
End Date2012-04-29
Project Creator(s)Harebrained Schemes
ExcerptShoot Straight. Conserve Ammo. And Never Cut a Deal With A Dragon.

Jordan Weisman, the creator of Shadowrun, is back and Shadowrun Returns (for Apple & Android tablets and PCs) is the game that Shadowrun fans have been waiting for a long time. A graphically rich 2D turn-based single player game with deep story interaction, meaningful character development, and highly-contextual tactical combat, Shadowrun Returns is not only going to make some old geeks (like us) very happy but it will introduce new players to a dynamic gaming universe that is beloved around the world.

Created almost 25 years ago, Shadowrun remains one of the most original and cherished role-playing settings. The game world’s origin story mashes-up the dystopian Cyberpunk future of a Blade Runner with the high fantasy creatures and races of a Lords of the Rings in an organic way that produces iconic characters, environments, and situations.

Note that stretch goals have added MacOS and Linux support!
