Shadowrun Returns

Shoot straight. Conserve ammo. And never, EVER cut a deal with a dragon.

Shadowrun Returns brings back one of our most original & cherished game settings as a 2D turn-based RPG for tablets & PC.

I supported this game on Kickstarter because I think there should be more beautifull 2D RPG’s and the fact that I played the actual RPG (books, dices etc…). This one is also going to be made for Android which is the main reason I supported it.

Take a look at some concept art which gives an impression about the ingame look and feel.

    I forgot the link to the developer website :

    They give regular updates. And even sometimes ask their backers what they would like. One such surveys was which new city should be included in the game. Which eventually ended up being Berlin

    Berlin has seen many wars in its history and the Awakened World did not spare it. The EuroWars left it crushed yet again, but like a phoenix it continues to rise from the ashes. While the more modern western half turned to the corps, the more volatile eastern residents voted with their Molotov cocktails that anarchy was the way to go. The result is that Berlin is a dynamic dichotomy; home to many of Europe’s top corps, including the great dragon Lofwyr’s Seader-Krupp and Daimler-Benz, and home to Europe’s biggest collection of fixers, data thieves and gangs. Every runner considers it a badge of honor to run the streets of Berlin.

    So it also has all the nice extra background stories I loved to read in the shadowrun books.
