    For anyone who's (still) old enough to remember (the original) Shadowrun, rejoice!
    Shadowrun Returns has met its funding goal over at Kickstarter, with (still) 22 days left and (already) 50 grand over the funding goal of 500 grand.
    Will be available on PC, Mac, iOS & Android tablets, and most likely also Linux.

    Damn.

    Like most things associated with Shadowrun, this will most likely be really cool, or really terrible. Definitely worth keeping an eye on though.

    HELL YES! He had me convinced with 'Level-Editor' and 'remember where we came from'.

    I don't know. The last game kind of ruined the franchise for me.

    Yeah, that. :p

    The latest Shadowrun wasn't done by its original creators; it was merely a 'based on' product.
    The latest Shadowrun is about the same as the latest Syndicate from EA; it's nothing like the original.

    This one (Shadowrun Returns), however, is straight from the source, true to the core Shadowrun game, by the same guy who made FASA studio which made the original Mechwarrior and Shadowrun franchises.

    They have just stretched the goal to 1 million. o_O
    And if they manage to reach that goal, they'll add a second city to roam about, among other things.
    Also important to note, the extra cash past the first goal will be used to expand the original city (Seattle), so even if the 1 million isn't met, players will still get a larger, more detailed city to play in.

    ...and Riggers!

    It's kinda crazy when there's the 10k pledge and all three have been taken in less than a week after the Kickstarter fund is opened.

    Just an update, and sorry for the double post & bump.
    The project has exceeded the 1 million goal with 13 days left and around 60K over.
    Good Lord.

    Maybe EA should take a hint on the Syndicate franchise about not fixing what's not broken. ;)

    If more Kickstarter projects will succeed in near future i bet we'll be seeing lots of publisher websites coming up: EAstarter, Ustarter, ROCKstarter .... :D

    Guys, no, don't think "this is going to be 3d shadowrun oh cool!!!" because you're setting yourself up for disappointment, especially considering the page says it's going to be a 2D game:
    It's also not going to be an AAA title, tho I'm not too sure how you determine this (budget perhaps? it would make sense I guess).
    In any case, 2D is able to create amazing looking environments and animations just as well as 3D can, so really there's nothing to be disappointed about either way.

    I'm thrilled that developers are going to kickstarter to fund their projects instead of going to publishers, as this means they can do the games they want to make without any interference from the publisher.

    Oh lord let's hope not.

    Yup my bad :) I'm just over excited lol...
    Even 2D will still bring the excitement of the world of shadowrunners :)
    I think the game will have an isometric view just like the original and off course HD resolution hoho :banana:
    The first game was not AAA title but that was my first RPG :)
    I'm curious with the game as I never play a game style like that, but i keep trying (Yes I died a lot :D) and finished it in a month if i'm not forgotten hehe

    Shadowrun! One of the best games I ever played. I have been studing game programming in order to make a game a lot like shadowrun. I only played the sega genesis version though. It was amazing for that time. Some times I still play it on the sega just for kicks.

    EA = Sh!tstarter
    Ubisoft = FunDingRM
    Rockstar = PCporter

    But I serf*ckingriously hope they don't.


    I don't know what people's perception regarding 'AAA title' these days, but for its time, Shadowrun was pretty much an AAA title. =b

    this is GREAT news! I used to play the table top game with friends and have thought this would be great! Now if only they could make it moddable where you can have a DM controlling the world & you can set up Runs for your Runners to go on. Heck yea!
