Teaming up with Nordic Games

Posted by Cliffhanger Productions (Creator)

Hoi Chummers!

Here is the latest intel on our project. As some of you might have seen already, we have entered into a cooperation with Nordic Games for the physical distribution of Shadowrun Online. First and foremost this agreement means that we will release our game not just digitally; Nordic Games will help us ship and produce a boxed version, which allows anyone who prefers a physical copy to just grab it from a store nearby and also of course is part of our kickstarter fulfillment.

However this deal allows us to also improve Shadowrun in a couple of areas which you and everyone will benefit from. First of all bringing Shadowrun Online to stores means that a lot more boxes will be produced, which in turn also means that we can crank up the quality of the box without costs exploding. Nordic Games creating the box and handling logistics also means that we have more time to actually work on the game itself, increasing the quality of the finished product. And last but definitely not least, this deal allows us to release Shadowrun Online not just in English: We’ll also have a French and a German version (and maybe translations into other languages as well) by launch! As they are distributing the game, not publishing, they have absolutely no influence on the development of the game, but it will also help us with PR and marketing and such, making sure Shadowrun Online gets seen by more folks out there.

This is just the tip of the iceberg though – we’ll have more announcements about Shadowrun Online in the next days and weeks. Stay tuned!

      Good to know.

      For what its worth, I don't mind waiting on the physical goods so please focus on getting the game into good shape! (Though if you can encourage Catalyst to release the PDF sourcebook earlier is better)

      Have you talked with HBS about the minis and swag bag? They have a messenger bag for their newest campaign so they can probably offer advice on partners for that. Plus they now have lots of mini experience from Golem Arcana.

      But as I said, focus on the game first! Everything else can wait!

      No, they will just handle the boxed copies (similar to Catalyst handling the Campaign Book). All other physical rewards are still up to us, though we are currently working on finding the right partners to get everything produced.

      That's promising news. Will they be helping with the rest of rewards, or will you still be doing those in house?
