People, it seems, love Shadowrun. Within 28 hours of Jordan Weisman (one of the original pen-and-paper Shadowrun creators) putting up a kickstarter project asking for $400,000 USD to make
As with other kickstarters, the project will remain open for the next 23 days and all additional funding will go towards improving the game. A recent update, for example, stated that at $425,000 USD (now surpassed), Mac support would be added.
When it eventually comes out (sometime next year), you can expect Shadowrun Returns to be a “graphically rich 2D turn-based single player game with deep story interaction, meaningful character development, and highly-contextual tactical combat”. It’ll be released on PC, Mac and Android/Apple tablets.
For those unfamiliar with the Shadowrun universe, it’s a mash-up of high fantasy races and Philip K Dick style ‘cyberpunk’.
