Shadowrun Returns
« on: April 04, 2012, 11:16:25 AM »

Hey, I don't know if any of you run in the kickstarter circles, but I came across this, and it was just too awesome not to share:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1613260297/shadowrun-returns

Jordan Wiesman is looking to fund a new Shadowrun game. :O

No comments? I thought that was the most awesome thing ever!

And since they totally funded it in one day- its a definite thing. If you donate $60 or more, you get a docwagon card to carry around (as well as one in-game).

Anything?

$60 for a docwagon card? Is this a kickstarted software program, or a pen and paper game?

Okay, I paid the $66 bucks to get some L0075 and help realize the dream of a turn-based videogame without DRM, and a cool book thing, and a t-shirt, and a pony... and oh, wait... maybe some of that is made up. *shrug* but I chipped in nonetheless and donated my videogame money for this month to them.

Yeah it looks awesome!  Love the fact that the people developing it are Shadowrunners (the people who developed the rpg we all love)  I'll be supporting them as well.

$700,000 and counting!

I'm going to contribute my $60, and put my DocWagon card in my wallet. :)

I'm very excited for this; also for my real-life DocWagon card, Backer t-shirt, and for the opportunity to make a Shadowrun video game a reality.

My brother(s) and I have been contributing to this project- my brother (DaveofDeth) convinced me to upgrade to the $125 mark, where you get the game, the hardcover book, gold docwagon card... and, most importantly, Shadowrun dogtags.

More good news- the project has raised $1.2 million ($1,263,845 as of the time of this posting), and Weismann dropped some more good news on us:

Quote from: Jordan Weisman, Kickstarter 'Shadowrun Returns' page
Last week we announced that if our funding hit $1.5m, we’ll create a special story, just for backers, that connects the plots in the SNES and Sega Shadowrun games. It’s our way of saying thank you for all your support. Your reaction was immediate, passionate, and inspiring.

It seems like everyone is really excited about the mission (we are too!), but an overwhelming number of you don’t want that the mission to be exclusive for backers. You want everyone who loves Shadowrun to be able to experience it.

That’s awesome.

Your generosity of spirit and your support for people who aren’t (yet, we hope) involved in this Kickstarter really says something important about the Shadowrun Community and we’re proud to be a part of it. But we still want to say “thank you” to everyone supporting the project and putting their faith in us.

So here’s what we’re going to do: If we’re lucky enough to get to $1.5m, we’ll create that story and make it available only to backers but for an exclusive period of time. Then, we’ll open it up so that everyone can see how the dots between Jake and Harlequin are connected.

Everybody plays. Everybody wins. Everybody calls DocWagon.

You people are incredible. As of this writing, we have well over 6,000 posts on our Kickstarter page alone. Add to that the thousands more on Reddit, Dumpshock, Facebook, the comments pages of sites hosting articles about the project, and the gazillion private messages and emails we receive and one thing is clear—people are talking about Shadowrun Returns.

Back when Jordan first created Shadowrun, this sort of community interaction just wasn’t possible. The best way (it felt like the only way) to communicate with fans was in person at game conventions. Not a very efficient method, but a fun one! Happily, the Digital Age is upon us and we feel very lucky to have the ability to read your comments, listen to your debates, and write blog posts like these.

As we look across all the myriad websites and forums, it’s become quite apparent that this community needs a place of its own: a Shadowrun Universe website.

    One place where fans of every aspect of Shadowrun (remember the collectible card game?) come together to learn, to express themselves, and to have fun.
    One place where everyone we can share a love of Shadowrun: forums, fiction, art, videos, news . . . everything.
    One place where we can check in with you.

So, in that spirit of community, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Cliffhanger Productions, who are developing Shadowrun Online and with Catalyst Game Labs, the producers of the Shadowrun tabletop game, to make this a reality.

Just to be clear: we are not going to use any of the Shadowrun Returns Kickstarter money to fund the Shadowrun Universe website.

Our Kickstarter project is about creating a new Shadowrun game with your generous support. The Shadowrun Universe website is about all of us revitalizing and re-energizing a game setting that we’ve loved for years. 

More on this later when we’ve worked through the details. For now, back to crunching!

Thanks again! You make this worth doing!

HBS

Hope y'all have a wonderful day!

I remember the card game!  I actually still have my cards... somewhere.  I remember I had taken a bunch out and was going to use them as a "random encounter generator."  Essentially pick a card from the deck, and that thing happens.  One of my favorites was "Green Apple Quickstep" which essentially is... well... diarrhea.   bahahaha! ;D

Just four days left in the fundraising... deadline? Timeline? Event?

I don't know what it's called, but I'm excited to have a new Shadowrun video game in the pipeline! And I'm incredibly excited for all the custom content that's going to be generated by the community of fans out there, and I'm a little bit extra excited for the cool swag. :D

Please, tell your old gaming groups, friends, and post your facebook status to "Shadowrun is awesome!" So that everyone knows about this game. :D
