Great news for all Shadowrun fans. We were a bit late to the party, but we are delighted to tell you that there was a Kickstarter campaign for the return of Shadowrun. And the good news is that it has already achieved its $400K goal. Yeap, Shadowrun Returns will be funded and will be a graphically rich 2D turn-based single player game with deep story interaction, meaningful character development, and highly-contextual tactical combat for tablets and PC.
Four realities overlap in the world of Shadowrun (the Physical, the Digital, the Mystic, and the Astral) and associated character classes such as the Street Samurai, Hacker, Combat Mage, and Shaman, each have the ability to view and interact with the world in ways the others can’t.
Missions (aka “Runs”) in Shadowrun Returns can require interaction with all four realities simultaneously, requiring you to use information learned from each character’s perspective to coordinate their context-sensitive actions to get the job done. . . and survive.
Those interested can back this project up here. Special thanks to our reader ‘Sam’ for pointing us to this Kickstarter.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
