We’re pleased to announced that the Linux version of Shadowrun Returns is now available on Steam and in the Download section of your HBS account (which you’ll find here). From this point on, Linux will receive updates at the same time as the Windows and OSX versions of the game. Thanks to all the Linux Beta Testers for their feedback. Much appreciated!
In addition to Linux support, version 1.1 of Shadowrun Returns has moved from Beta to release and the game will automatically update the next time you launch it on Steam. As mentioned in our last update, we also added quite a few new editor features in this release in anticipation of the Berlin campaign. You can find the entire change log here. Our next big code update will feature expanded save game functionality.
In other news, we are doing the final passes on the French, Italian and Spanish versions of the game which will be ready for release in the next few weeks. We anticipate the German and Russian translations to be delivered from our translators in November, and after we do a little in-house testing we will release those as well.
For GMs using the editor to create their own Shadowruns, we’re working on some new tutorial videos for you. We’ll put them up on our YouTube channel in the next couple of weeks.
And while we’re talking about the editor, Jordan and Mitch’s Let’s Play #3: Razor’s Edge by Obsidian_Razor is up on our YouTube channel now. You can grab some popcorn to watch the full version or take a look at the Highlights Reel. We’re very excited about the cool content you’re creating and the boys look forward to playing more of it! And remember, if you subscribe to the channel, you’ll automatically get mail to let you know when a new Let’s Play or tutorial is released.
Onward to Berlin!
