Update #18

Second Survey Away!

The difference between BERLIN and HONG KONG was less than 1%!!! 

So. . . IT'S A RUN-OFF!!! 

A run-off survey was just sent to backers. We'll announce the results Monday, May 21st.

If you're a backer, remember to check your email's spam folder!

Have fun!

      Hey everyone - sorry we are running a bit behind on getting the Second City Announcement posted. We will have it up today/tonight.

      Also Mitch wanted me to let you all know he's been receiving all your emails and other requests and will get to them as soon as he can.

      Then I guess I caught the last train, because I once again forgot to check my spam folder - until today, that is. Luckily, the time difference works in my favour this time (living in Europe), so Berlin got my vote ... again :) I'd be happy with either choice, though, even if Hong Kong indeed sounds a little bit too mystical.

      I'm still in favour of a city editor, though, as I commented back when the fund-raising campaign (can you use that term for Kickstarter, by the way?) wasn't over yet. Harebrained Schemes should consider this as an expansion, and then you will have whatever you want. Indeed, there will be overlaps in the beginning, but the community will sort out the best projects. In fact, if there is enough money, HS could make it a competition, and include the best player-made cities as an expansion. It's worth thinking about, this will really engage the community, and secure longevity for the game.

      Creator Stuart Connolly on May 20, 2012

      Both cities sound good to me, The main reason I'm picking Hong Kong though is because of the mix of old with the new plus the resources at your disposal are far larger than that in Berlin, both for physical supplies, Software supplies, and Magic supplies. A perfect den for Data Handlers, Black market goods, smuggling, trafficking, and convoluted stories. Berlin on the other hand while it's got perhaps a fifth of the supplies as Hong Kong, has potential for more action, danger, and underhanded dealings. Either way I'm happy with the final out come.

      Went with Berlin this time. Little sad that there won't be more of the Archology to explore. That's pretty much my favorite module of all time. Hong Kong just doesn't convey the gritty tech feel that I associate with Shadowrun. Too mystical for my tastes (Even if this is the Sixth World).

      Creator David Gardner on May 18, 2012

      hehe well I voted Berlin though I have to say I'm a little disappointed, I was looking forward the the Euro players bringing us stuff that had to do with Berlin through the game editor I mean it makes sense that the people that know the place would be able to present the best material, with there thoughts and influences. Instead there was mass complaining about "to much U.S." to a U.S. company. Makes me think that if they ever make a new Gothic game I will have to gripe about how it should be placed in the Seattle area :P

      I hope, man. A lot of those city options sounded really freakin' cool, so I for one am hoping for some DLC cities in the future. I was really torn in my vote since Berlin, Hong Kong, and London all really appealed to me. Expanded Seattle sounded really great, too (just maybe without so much emphasis on Renraku), but I want distinctly different flavor in the second city, ya know?

      So here's hoping this game is a runaway success and they make a DLC [Runner-Up City Here] and maybe follow it up with another DLC city after that. (And uhh.. maybe another?)

      I'm talking about a definitive Shadowrun vidja game experience, nawmean?
