The lights are on
After delaying the release of the Kickstarter-funded Shadowrun Returns to May or June this year, Harebrained Schemes is releasing the first official gameplay footage for Shadowrun Returns: Alpha.
When Shadowrun Returns came about on Kickstarter, it was seeking $400,000. Harebrained Schemes successfully surpassed that amount and put the game into development. The extra money led to the extra time needed to fine-tune the game, hence the delay.
Shadowrun is a classless system, which gives players the chance to change things up. You can develop your character the way you want without the limitations of a class. The different characters you can grow into are a mage, street samurai, decker, shaman, rigger and physical adept. A previous Game Informer feature expands on each of these different characters.
The game is slated for release on PC, Mac, and tablets. You can follow the game’s progress at the developer’s official website and check out the gameplay footage below.
really cool looks good
This looks really good. So glad I backed this.
There's so many good turn-based strategy games coming through Kickstarter! I'm pretty excited.
This looks phenomenal. Day 1 buy!
between being a DM for the table top years ago, and the countless hours spent on the sega, i cannot wait for this one.
I cannot wait to play that!
This really caught my attention when the preview first appeared in GI magazine. happy to finally see footage.
Looking intriguing enough thus far.
This and project Eternity are the two games I regret not backing, they will most likely be day one purchases though.
Holy ***! Shadowrun and XCOM had a baby, this is my dream game!
I was hesitant back when I backed it, but this looks really darn good. I'm excited about all these old games getting re-envisionings. Backing games like this, Wasteland2, Project Eternity and however many others I've backed and forgotten about are one of the few times I can say I'm glad to be an impulse buyer :D
Alpha footage looks great. I'm stoked for this game. Enjoyed the classic Shadowrun and glad to see it returning.
Good that this is coming out soon been waiting for my copy for donating : D
What the (bleep) is this (bleep)? This needs 100% more first-person shooting! And some team deathmatch! THAT'S what Shadowrun is supposed to be! Single player gameplay? Who still does that in this day and age; haven't you heard guys - big publishers like EA are saying the future of video games is all online. Always connected. SOCIAL GAMING. Single player is dead. This is a travesty!
Yes, I'm trolling:) Although, you know what's sad? You know there's at least ONE person on the planet who is thinking that right now, thanks to that Xbox 360 embarrassment.
This makes me very happy. To be clear, I was just joking before!
This looks like a good way to waste a weekend.
this looks sick! im guessing it pc only though...
This kicks ass! Shadow Run and Shadow Watch.
