Pretty much every time I try to talk about RPGs around here, I’m hit with multiple “WHY AREN’T YOU TALKING ABOUT SHADOWRUN RETURNS” comments, so well, here I am talking about Shadowrun Returns! Are you happy now?
Jordan Weisman, one of the creators of the original Shadowrun tabletop game, is developing Shadowrun Returns, which was a success on Kickstarter to the tune of around 1.8 million dollars. The game has taken the form of a strategy/tactical RPG and will, in a crazy little bit of continuity, actually tie into the Shadowrun games released nearly 20-years-ago on the SNES and Genesis.
Hit the jump for a first look at Shadowrun Returns in action…
Looking pretty slick for a crowdfunded indie. I really like how the game shifts seamlessly from traditional “walk around town talking to people” RPG stuff, to tactical battles. I’ll admit, I never played the well-liked 16-bit Shadowrun games, but I may have to give this one a try.
