So...this is it then.


Hoi Chummers,

2017 is here and we have finally done it - we sent out (and in a few cases re-sent) all the physical rewards to our backers (years too late). We have released a game and two add-ons (years too late) and we have survived an insolvency (barely). This has been a hell of a ride (as promised in the kickstarter announcement...just very different from what we were aiming for) and we are grateful you stuck with us, send us constructive (and sometimes angry and disappointed) criticism and kept the game alive to this day.

You were gracious enough to help us with the physical items by forgoing some and paying extra for postage. You were here and in the game and made others feel welcome and kept the (small, but vigorous and friendly) community alive.

For all this, we want to again say thanks. An online Shadowrun experience was a dream for me personally since I started working in computer games and even though it turned into something of a nightmare at times and I lost the better part of the company I co-founded in the process of making something that was much more modest than our vision, I am grateful I could at least touch the frayed edges of that dream.

Well, after all this time the kickstarter process has now come to an end and we are currently working on a modern day turn-based tactical game (with co-op!) under a work for hire contract that will hopefully allow us to make enough revenue to create more SRC, but which is keeping us pretty busy for now. Of course we will let you know details about that as soon as we are allowed to.

In the meantime, we have some unclaimed items left over from the fulfilment and we are SELLING THEM FOR OVER 50% OFF.

If anyone is interested in grabbing these unique items that are the last ones to ever be sold, you have exactly 7 days to respond to It's first come, first serve!

How will it work?

Below is a list of items in stock (if it reads 0 that means none). You can send us a mail with what you want from either location (separate shipments) and we will enter that order and calculate shipping and get back to you with a final price. Once that money has been transferred via Paypal (we don't have a fancy webstore for these), we will send out your stuff.

The first 10 orders will receive  a free Shadowrun Chronicles INFECTED! Steam Code on top of their order! So write to us today!

See you in the shadows


The printed Shadowrun Lockdown books have arrived at the US warehouse


Hi Chummers!

Good news: the printed Shadowrun Lockdown books from Catalyst have been sent to the US warehouse. They will be processed and we expect that orders containing the books, which are going to the US or Canada, will start shipping next week.

We are still waiting for the other half of the order of Catalyst Books going to the UK warehouse but hopefully this one will be sorted out soon as well. This concerns primarily orders containing the book and going to the EU and RoW (except US, Canada).

ID cards complete all orders except for those including the printed Shadowrun Lockdown book


Hey Chummers!

We wanted to make a small update about the ID cards: when receiving them, you will get a letter from us, saying that this completes your order of physical rewards.

We had initially assumed that by the time the ID card reaches you, all your other rewards would have been delivered. However, this is currently not the case for orders containing the Shadowrun Lockdown printed book. We are still waiting for the books to be delivered to the warehouses by Catalyst and hope this will happen over the next 2 weeks.

We have been trying our best to reach the guys at Catalyst for weeks, but have not received an order confirmation for the books yet. Should this not be resolved this month, we will send out the physical rewards without the printed books, and find another solution for those.

And the send-out has commenced!


I...I can barely believe I get to type these words. Ahem...:

The sending out of all physical rewards has commenced - the Catalyst books are still on the way from their warehouse as are the game boxes, but for everyone else your stuff has begun to travel your way! As in IT IS ACTUALLY GOING TO BE SENT TO YOU!

...phew...wheez...excuse the's all this excitement.

I know we taxed everyone's patience and then some, but we persevered and I am a little proud of the fact that we did not walk away as with many other kickstarters which got into trouble. (Not so proud that we got into this mess in the first place, mind you.)

So, here we are, the journey that took years is finally nearing its end. There is still stuff to do, the NeoNet cards and printed backer portraits will be sent out separately (and manually, with love) from our end, but that is going to take a while via mail and we will start this mid-October when we have everything gathered in one large pile.

I am sure the logistics will also keep us busy for a while, but we will hopefully get that sorted out.

Thanks again to all our backers and everyone who stuck with us for this long!

Also, we have expanded our free "choose your own adventure" style Shadowrun messenger game. Just visit Shadowtalker on the Facebook site or start a conversation with @Shadowtalker via Facebook messenger. Let us know how you like it!

Cya in the Shadows!

The Cliffhanger Team

Oh and if you are interested in a truly unique RPG, our team member primetide has a kickstarter going for a game lauded by as "......none of them have ever had the look of Backdrop. ...The paper doll actors look incredible, as does the scenery. The game ensures that this design concept flows through to gameplay...."

Things are the warehouse


Hoi chummers,

things are moving forward with regards to the physical swag. T-Shirts, hoodies and bags are done and on the way to the warehouse or already there, as are the USB cards and boxes. The NeoNET ID cards arrived at our own office - we will send those separately as the warehouse cannot handle named items.

The only thing that is lagging behind are the Catalyst books - they have been sitting in their warehouse, but we have problems in reaching them to organize logistics. Hopefully that can be sorted out soon.

So if all goes well sending out things should begin within the next 10 days or so - we will update you once things commence.

With regards to other things Shadowrun, I have been dabbling around with messenger games...those things you can play via Facebook Messenger and are a bit like the "Play your own addventure" books. If you want to check out my baby steps in that genre, visit Shadowtalker or just begin a chat with Shadowtalker in the Messenger. Or use your kik app and play it from their bot shop or scan the kik image on the facebook page.

Oh, and while I am plugging away shamelessly: I have a side project with a group of other game developers  - unrelated to Cliffhanger - that has been cooking on the backburner for years (when we have worked on it in the very little spare time we had) and is finally ready to go to kickstarter (and now I have learned a million ways this can go wrong, hopefully this will go better). It will launch Monday 26th and if you are interested, you can check it out here.

I want to be very clear that this has nothing to do with Cliffhanger or this kickstarter. This is a sort of hobby thing a small group of devs has been doing before Shadowrun started and I am aware it seems ironic to finish this kickstarter here 2.5 years late and advertise another. But I wanted to let people know before it appeared on kickstarter and they began wondering what that was about.

As always, thanks for your patience and understanding.

see you in the Shadows
