The Home Stretch!

You people are AWESOME !

We sincerely hope that you enjoy kicking the drek out things as Physical Adapts - because you have totally nailed that goal.

There's 15 hours left and about $233k to go to hit $2m, seems like a bit of a stretch - but you guys have amazed us before so it could happen.

What twisted thank you awaits you there?

. . . kitten . . . . dragon . . . .maybe not joking this time?

Lets get there and see!

All our thanks,



    1. Creator Bryce Lynch on April 30, 2012

      Dunklezhan's ghost playing Wasteland with Harlequin and Billy Idol?

    2. Creator William Hochella on April 29, 2012

      Good, good. I was going to be Very Sad if they didn't make it.

    3. Creator GeltonTorr on April 28, 2012

      Well, Jordan requests and we Runners deliver - what more is there to say?

    6. Creator Ian Perley on April 28, 2012

      @Josh Gilbert. Kill it with... fire? Or no, scratch that. Pet it with fire?

    7. Creator Ross Levine on April 28, 2012 guys made it to 1.75! What were you going to add for that again?

    8. Creator Josh Gilbert on April 28, 2012

      Brace yourself for the reality of it:

    9. Creator Marty Czosnyka on April 28, 2012

      How bout a dragon posing as a kitten?

      How bout a dragon posing as a kitten?

    11. Creator Dustin on April 28, 2012

      What about a Dragon named Kitten?

    12. Creator Biff255 on April 28, 2012

      i want a kitten eating a dragon XD

    13. Creator Senkh on April 28, 2012

      Hmm, facebook mini-game? Sequel?

    14. Creator sitasan on April 28, 2012

      there is novels with an Adept for hero, i dunno the title, but it s on of my favorites.

      and yes, you are incredible Harebrained to do that possible in Shadowrun Return.

      Now what is coming next? at 2 million? i can't imagine that

    15. Creator George Dodge on April 28, 2012

      If you hit $2m, throw in Co-Op.

    16. Creator TygerKrash on April 28, 2012

      @MisterLurch means without Digital Rights management.. usually invasive Software that in theory prevents piracy.

    17. Creator Mr. Eff on April 28, 2012

      MisterLurch, DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and is used by some software in an attempt to control copying. DRM has a history of causing problems for legitimate users.

    18. Creator MisterLurch on April 28, 2012

      what does DRM free mean?

    19. Creator Roflmaou on April 28, 2012

      Nikki-it's already reached 1.75 when including paypal. so you has your ninja!

    20. Creator Nikki on April 28, 2012

      oh $20,000 till my magical ninja :D

    21. Creator Ryan Robinson on April 28, 2012

      I'm surprised that none of the 5-7.5k have gone and all the 10k have.
      More levels, or more stuff at higher levels, couldn't hurt- but I'm not sure what sorts of swag they could add in that they haven't already.

    22. Creator David McCloskey on April 28, 2012

      I am very pleased, and quite impressed with the support that Shadowrun Returns has gotten.

      I actually got into the tabletop before the video games came out, and when they did I was so happy. I still remember how much I played the SNES version.

      Of course, it doesn't reach the endless hours I've dedicated to the multiple editions of the Shadowrun pen and paper RPG. That game will be with me until I die.

      I can't wait for Shadowrun Returns to be out!

      Slot and run, chummers!

    23. Creator tony peterson on April 28, 2012

      Could we get the final paypal and kickstarter numbers?

    24. Creator antonio on April 28, 2012

      They really should have added more slots at 10k and 500 a while ago. Makes no sense, especially since 10k was sold out so long ago...

    25. Creator Thomas on April 28, 2012

      Yeah, I'd like the kitten and dragon option if we get it. I just wish I had more money to pledge.

    26. Creator Tim Filler on April 28, 2012

      I think not eric, but u can also pledge via paypal directly on the HBS Homepage - so the got the 1.75 maybe already ;)

    27. Creator Creston on April 28, 2012

      @ Eric Ziegler: The counter here doesn't show people who donated through Paypal. They've probably pulled in about 50K or so through PP.

    28. Creator eric ziegler on April 28, 2012

      Wait what? It's not at 1.75mil. Did they just change there mind?

    29. Creator Brian Lee on April 28, 2012

      I have a cat named Ketchup. I bet she's crunchy.

    30. Creator Auxilius on April 28, 2012

      I shall hunt and slaughter the dragon who dare eating a kitten.

    31. Creator Joshua Fennema on April 28, 2012

      Dragon Cat?


    32. Creator Murat Öğüt on April 28, 2012

      Dragon shapeshifting feature for kittens?

    33. Creator Mr.McDougle - Shadowrun Exile in Torment on April 28, 2012


      I totally forgot Paypal! :D

      Bam! Now lets just see how ur going to implement all this goodness- that last goal isnt that special... even though i want it. ^^

      Just take what u got and deliver proper 2D-Sr-Goodness...

      HMMMM... on a 2nd note:
      Make it MODDABLE(import assets ec.) and i'll up my pledge to 275$!

    34. Creator Stephanie Edwards on April 28, 2012

      Kittragons ftw!!!! (Dragittens?)

    35. Creator Patricia on April 28, 2012

      RAAAAAAAA for Adepts!!!!!!!!!
      :D :D :D

    36. Creator Torgamous on April 28, 2012

      @Ian: Paypal donations don't show up on the Kickstarter page.

    37. Creator Matt on April 28, 2012

      And a new tier somewhere between $250 and $1000 would help... or even add more at $500, they sold out.

    38. Creator Jeff Hitchcock on April 28, 2012

      I would love to see the old modules developed for launch.: Universal Brotherhood, DNA/DOA, Mercuial, Harlequin, Double Exposure, Super Tuesday, Brainscan, A Killing Glare, Harlequin's back, etc etc etc.

    39. Creator David on April 28, 2012

      I'm thinking its about 50.

      233 left would be 1767. Minus 1716 = 51 ish?

    40. Creator Bachtiar Rahady on April 28, 2012

      I only want a nice looking old-school physical box I can hold.

    41. Creator Matt on April 28, 2012

      Yeah, if we have a shot at this we need to know where we stand.

    42. Creator David on April 28, 2012

      *Dark chuckle*

      Can you guys confirm current Paypal totals?

    43. Creator Ian Quadrio on April 28, 2012

      I'm confused. According to the total on my screen you're $35k shy of 1.75m. which is 285k shy of 2mil. Is my screen not working?

    44. Creator JackFlash on April 28, 2012

      How about a minigame where you just pin Harlequin down and kick him in the fork a few times?

    45. Creator Wayne F Newton on April 28, 2012

      Remember that as the money goes up the features already included will be improved, rather than adding new features at every level it showed that in the progress chart they had, but certainly a nice new kitten getting eaten by dunkelzahn would be a thought....or perhaps a nice signed poster of the cover art of shadowrun.. or even an In game style poster of Maria mercurial concert or somthing, like you used to get in some of the source books!

    46. Creator Bernhard Tischler on April 28, 2012

      I vote for genetically mutated hamsters which are technologically enhanced with microwaves. This would be a dream for all Maniac Mansion fans :-D... but well, kitten eating dragon comes really next to it :-D (hey, what about dragon eating kitten? I'd really want to see such cuties :-D)

    47. Creator daskindt on April 28, 2012


    48. Creator Frank Marcelli on April 28, 2012

      What is going to $2 million going to provide? If I missed what the next set of content enrichment was announced, please, someone forward me that info!

    49. Creator Adam Torma on April 28, 2012

      Thanks for the Adepts. I just hope this last strench doesn't end up as a frustration (not getting there).
