We spent the past week or so collecting your community questions (thanks!) and got a couple of videos out of it. So here's some info and links to the videos!
Thamer - You should still check out the video anyways. Nothing quite like hearing it from the source too. It's entertaining too.
We'll release a transcript in a few weeks. And there's nothing in their but Shadowrun, Shadowrun, Shadowrun!
Don't have time to watch thev video. Please consider releasing straight up answers. Also, I hope your updates here are only concerned with the current game. You've prided yourself on not having any marketing guys; I hope you think about this statement more carefully and just give us updates on the game we can grok in a reasonable period.
All the best.
i really really want to play the alpha version, or beta... :D please guys ... hurry hurry :D ah nahh.. take your time .. gnargl..
@Mark - The surveys for SWAG/rewards have not been sent out yet. HBS is creating a system to better handle management of backer rewards, addresses and more. They'll announce when it's ready here on Kickstarter and likely in the Shadowrun.com forums as well as on their Facebook page and on Twitter. There's plenty of time before the game comes out and I know they want to ensure everyone gets their rewards. ^_^
@firesock - Sally from HBS is on vacation for a week, after she returns she'll hook us up with transcripts of the Q&A's like she did last time. It may take a little time but they're coming!
Is there any transcript for this? Text would be faster to scan...
When is the Kickstarter survey going to be sent out? Or did I not get one? I ask because its been a while since I funded this project and I'm starting to forget what swag I chose.
I really like the sound of this, and it's great to see your enthusiasm with the game.
Thanks for the great videos.
If our posted question from last time wasn't answered or addressed , will there be a new place to repost?
I know you can't get to EVERYTHING so I will try and be more specific next time :)
Either way, awesome job, I would love to hang out in the office for a day.
I wish I had the 7500 to hang out at HQ
Hoi Joshua Allen!

If that doesn't work for you:
The link doesn't seem to open anything for me. Just asks me to select a program but nothing seems to work. What am I doing wrong?
Question for Q&A Part III Part 1; Why did Mitch have to go to court?
Feel better Sally!
Gents - I'm enjoying this enormously, one quick question - if talking can lead to combat, could it also detract from combat? I.e. could a smooth talker stop the bullets flying and cause the knives to be sheathed?? Could there be a determinate as to how committed the sides in the fight are? Perhaps a security guard does as he is supposed to but after some time is willing to let things go for the sake of a quieter life?
Sounds tricky but has wonderful implications (LOVE games that mimnic real life fights where- as it turns out - almost nobody dies.)
Thanks for Q&A! Somebody should cast some heal spells on Sally.
I like that last bit about customization (of characters?) nice! I really hope that works out in the final game. Also, totally stoked to hear what music Marshall Parker and Sam Powell come up with for the Shadowrun Returns.
I did forget to pose one question/feature request... will we be able to save and transfer games between platforms and devices? I tend to move between different desktops and my tablet, and being able to continue the same game would be super.
Thanks again to Jordan, Mitch and Sally for bringing us these Video Q&A's, they're AWESOME!! ANd Sally, feel better and have a great vacation! (and good luck in court Mitch!) ^_^
Thanks you very much ! :)
