Shadowrun: Hong Kong Crowd-Funding Goal Achieved In Two Hours

By   /   Jan 14, 2015

Shadowrun series began in 1989 and since then, we have seen six incredible titles in the franchise. Previous entry in the series called Shadowrun Returns released a couple of years ago and received fairly decent response from the players.

The developer behind the series has revealed that the next entry in the popular franchise is in development, but the team will need crowd-funding to complete the project.

Due to this reason, the new title called Shadowrun: Hong Kong was brought to Kickstarter yesterday, where developers were looking to gain $100K in a period of 35 days.

However, due to the large fan-following for the series, the game reached the set goal in less than a couple of hours. At the time of writing, the game had received over $311,206 from 7786 backers, which you can expect to increase in the coming days.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong is a modern reboot of the popular franchise. It is set in 2056 Hong Kong, and will focus on the “underworld of triads, tongs, wild magic, and bleeding edge cybertech with a crew of flawed, dangerous runners.”

As for now, developers are only looking to bring this new title Mac, Windows, and Linux. After that, developers may consider releasing it for mobile phones and consoles.
