Well, it was expected that something like this will pop up real soon, and I am glad it did. Shadowrun Returns developer Harebrained Schemes LLC is back at it; they left a teaser message on the Kickstarter website suggesting a new project is coming our way.
The completely unexplained and purposefully short message was in the form of an image with “Kickstarter” and “January 2015” written over a logo of the game (check out thhe image above). The post heading itself reads:
Shadowrun returns to Kickstarter January 2015.
Harebrained Schemes LLC released Shadowrun Returns last year for Microsoft Windows, OS X, Linux, iPad and Android. The latest version was released to Linux in October 2013.
This was followed by Shadowrun Returns Dragonfall expansion which was received with equal enthusiasm as the original game. The title has also received a Director’s Cut.
Now, it seems like they have exhausted all the plans for the game; which is good since it has made them think of the next game in the series.
As far as the development studio itself is concerned, they have really created repute for themselves with people talking of their projects in praises. I am sure many of you guys will think the same.
As far as the Kickstarter campaign is concerned, it seems like the right thing to do because the previous game in the series has outdone its campaign target by a multifold. Instead of the $400,000 goal, the game got $1.84 million!
So what do you think? Will you be throwing your money at Harebrained Schemes LLC for the next game in the series? Or will you wait and watch?
