Hadn't seen anyone mention this recent news of the kickstarter for a Shadowrun sequel located here
http://www.kickstart...adowrun-returns

I realize with all the recent news of kickstarters beginning which might end up causing kickstarter fatigue, I for one, am excited for this one as well and wanted to see if anyone else was that frequented these forums.

There's already another Shadowrun game in development, this one is not the first return.

I'd never even heard of Kickstarter until this Wasteland thing. I am so not with it. :lol: It's been interesting to see the photography/film projects on that site, too.

As to the game...yet another one I've never heard of/played, probably because I'm not that into shooters. Did it really only work on Vista originally?

Look at the video they posted what they think about that FPS game. xDD Anyway they've got my pledge too. And they've already reached the goal so they better deliver what they promised.

I backed this yesterday as well. I just hope it's st least a proper cRPG. OMG ORGASAM SHADOWRUN SETTING. <3 <3 <3

I actually wished and wished Obsidian could do a game in this setting. If only. But this will do.

Oh, so I was looking at the completely wrong wiki page/game title then... well, doh. :blush:
...still never heard of it, tho. But if it's a rpg then it has potential. :lol:

Shadowrun Online is a 3D in-browser, mission based MMO with an emphasis on co-op and PvP gameplay being developed by Cliffhanger Productions and scheduled for release in mid-2013. The game is set in the 2070 era of Shadowrun and will pick up on some of the plotlines and characters in our game, Shadowrun Returns, which is set in 2050.

I have a hunch that both games are gonna suck. SR:O for being a friggin' browser MMO, and SR:R for being some low-budget 2D game that keeps me interested for 5 minutes max.

I want something with a bit more backing, like XCOM:EU.

Genesis and SNES Shadowrun games were fantastic (Genesis being the best IMO)

^I cant remember which one of those I played back in the day I just remember getting stuck in some nightclub. Years later I read that you were supposed to use a flash on a vampire (?) to stun him to be able to advance the plot. Or something like that, I may have made that all up in my head.

I dont donate but this is a day one buy for me once its launched.

It's be cool if they can get the release date of December 21st this year.

I'm not sold on this Kickstarter thing being ideal though, it's one thing to fund a very proven team, but what have these guys done to this point?

That was the SNES version and I remember getting stuck there too.

Also, it's probably better to think of it as a pre-order than a donation since you get something back for anything over 15 bucks. Who knows, maybe if they can get enough they will bring in an Obsidian dev too :p

If Obsidian could just do one game in this setting, It would be the best Obsidian (and Shadowrun) game EVAR. That'e never going to happen though. If only I had trillions of dollars.

Here's hoping it is like the Sega Genesis game.

MAN was that one extremely addictive.
