Eyes and ears!
Today’s update is based on requests from our creative backers and fans!
You may have seen our AWESOME (if we do say so ourselves) character and NPC artwork already. And if you haven’t feasted your eyes on it yet, take a peek here and use one of these great avatars as your Kickstarter, Twitter, Facebook, or general Matrix avatar to proudly proclaim you are a Shadowrun Online backer! But continue reading for there is more graphic goodness to come!
Picturing the mean streets
We are working with a pool of great creative people such as Shadowrun artists extraordinaire, AAS and Klaus Schwerwinski, both members of SHE (Our Shadowrun High Council of Elders, an elite circle of SR luminaries such as Tom Dowd, Jason Hardy and Bull, to name a few. They make sure we stay true to the vision and guide us with their wisdom). They are all helping us to define the visceral visual atmosphere for Shadowrun Online as we are currently detailing out the respective megacorp styles, as well as defining our city hub atmosphere. Another talented artist helping us shape the vision is Josh Godin and we wanted to show you some samples of Josh’s previous work that we have used as a starting point below.
Play it loud!
Music and sound effects play a major role in the atmosphere of any game. We have received a high number of offers from music and sound professionals wanting to contribute to Shadowrun Online, and we are now collecting submissions for the game! For example here are a couple of recent tracks by the renaissance man and sound master Walter Machado, created as his take on SRO.
In fact, if you are a music composer and want to support Shadowrun Online, you can send us your compositions and we will put those that are suitable up on our site for fans to listen to and provide feedback on! Share your love and talent with the fans!
Calling all stations!
We are still hard at work answering your questions, and supporting you in spreading the word to forums and fan communities. Remember, you can help out in many ways!
