One of the old-school games from back in the day that hasn't been shown a lot of love is Battletech. Well, that was until recently when Harebrained Schemes announced that they would be reviving the old turn-based mech sim for today's generation of gamer.
Harebrained Schemes has managed to accrue more than $1 million in crowd-funding for their next adventure in the Shadowrun universe, Shadowrun: Hong Kong. Not only did the project manage to rack in $1,121,359, but it also hit the special mark of having a second mini-campaign added.
If you enjoyed Shadowrun Returns or, more appropriately, the extremely well-executed expansion pack called Dragonfall, you'll be pleased to know that there's more where those came from. Developer Harebrained Schemes appears to be hiring for a new game.
There have been quite a few complaints about Harebrained Schemes' isometric, cyberpunk RPG expansion, Shadowrun: Returns Dragonfall. However, there's one complaint that seems a bit misplaced: the sidequests.
I've had more time to put into Dragonfall for Shadowrun Returns, and the game just keeps getting better and better. Oh wow is it a far cry from the original Dead Man's Switch.
I haven't beaten Dragonfall, yet. I'm still early on and I'm still getting into the thick of things, but I've played enough to at least compare the expansion (and it is an expansion) to the original, and so far it's doing a lot more and better things than the original outing.
It feels a little odd calling something with its own full-length campaign, new feature and gameplay enhancements an “expansion,” but that’s exactly how Harebrained Schemes is billing Dragonfall, the first bit of epic DLC for Shadowrun Returns. And in case this bit of additional content was something you had your eye on, you can now pre-order this “magic-meets-cyberpunk” gaming goodness for $14.99.
Following an uber-successful Kickstarter campaign and subsequent uuber-successful launch, Shadowrun Returns is ready to dish out a brand new batch of content for its faithful players to enjoy as the Dragonfall expansion gets ready to launch early next year.
Harebrained Schemes' role-playing game Shadowrun Returns made its debut on mobile devices today. Returns, a brand-new adventure based on the popular pen-and-paper game, can be purchased through iTunes or Google Play for $9.99.
Harebrained Schemes' Shadowrun Returns was one of the first big hits on Kickstarter, racking up over $1.8 million by promising a turn-based strategy RPG inspired by the pen-and-paper game. Shadowrun Returns delivers on that promise but you should keep your expectations in check.
Harebrained Schemes sent out a launch trailer for their tactical RPG Shadowrun Returns this morning. The game will debut on PC and Mac through Steam in exactly one week.
Harebrained Schemes has finally done it, they've moved development forward enough for Shadowrun Returns to offer pre-orders right now on Steam. This means that those of you who couldn't wait to play the game can now put some money down to own it early.
Harebrained Schemes released a video of nearly 20 minutes of full-on gameplay from the early alpha build of Shadowrun Returns, one of the few crowd-funded games that became a Kickstarter sensation. The video is really neat, as it showcases a lot of functional gameplay and game mechanics in real-time. No CGI, no fluff, no E3 demos promising something it can't deliver.
Shadowrun Returns will take longer to arrive than expected. In an update on the game's Kickstarter page, producer Mitch Gitelman said that the cyberpunk fantasy game is now slated for May or June 2013.
Brand new concept art and screenshots have been made available to the public courtesy of Harebrained Schemes. The team let loose the new assets following PAX Prime, giving gamers a first-hand glimpse at what they can expect from Shadowrun Returns, the tactical role-playing game that was successfully Kickstarted not too long ago.
