      January 1 or later in the month for the launch of the KS?

      Looking forward to it. I have no problems with your use of Kickstarter to help fund future developments/campaigns for the game, on the contrary, I would welcome one each 6 months or so, if it meant we would great another great Shadowrun campaign every half-a-year or so. The engine you have is great, and the team has already shown they can make highly appealing narratives, and with lovely visuals and soundtrack to match. Both Shadowrun campaigns are easily some of my favorite gaming experiences in the last few years, and one of the few Kickstarter campaigns whose results far exceeded my expectations.

      I'll admit I am excited and going to fund, but I think the goal should be MUCH lower unless you are making vast engine improvements.

      You definitely need to have extremely detailed information on where the money will go and what else, beyond a new story (which I look forward to) if you want as big of a response.

      Could we have a 4K version of each wallpaper (3840x2160) ?

    6. Unicorn on

      If this is seeking additional funding via KS I expect this to be a damn near perfect analogue to the PnP game, meaning:

      Multiplayer support with custom campaigns
      Much more elaborated systems, options, scenarios, etc.
      Ability to play asynchronously, in real time - locally, or online

      I'm still skeptical as to why this is seeking additional KS, given the 4x meeting the initial goal, plus the rather abundant success via viral word-of-mouth and front-page and sale status on Steam.

      I want players to be able to experience the PnP game in a truly visual setting via the beautiful artwork you guys have done thus far, amazing music, and functional and intuitive menus and gameplay. I want a more complete package that can bring the video game to parity with the PnP.

      Well, it isn't like we hadn't expected it, but still damn awesome. Saving up wads of cash for this very purpose.

      add some political, police corruption in Hong Kong and some future triad gangs. The would then be perfect!! :D

    9. Sabin Figaro on

      Awesome! I can't wait for more information :) Is there any chance you could upload a 1080 version of the no-text wallpaper please? Also, perhaps some other options? Like 1080 wallpaper with "Shadowrun: Hong Kong" on there, but none of the bottom text?

      Would have rather seen Denver or Boston but
      Can't wait to play this one. It would be nice to import characters.

    11. Rhys Brooks on

      Looks to be awesome if it follows on from the Directors Cut style and we get the personalised team again, also Glory was amazing, more NPCs like her, in general and in the next game

    12. Lawrence Franchini on

      Can we import old characters into the new settings??

    13. Mark Jenks on

      Just Take my Money already :D

      Definitely in, although Hong Kong generally speaking as an environment isn't interesting. Not that familiar with Shadowrun universe though so I do not know what makes that particular place special. So, when is the release date? A bit before the kickstarter campaign ends? ;-)

    15. Joshua Graves on

      My body, it is ready.

      Can't wait, guys - very excited! You'll have my money as soon as I hear it's live!

    17. Sayburr on

      Wonderful setting... what are the chances of getting this and the previous releases on PS4 and XB1?

    18. Yulay Devlet on


    19. Kraken on

      And there was much rejoicing.

    20. Julien Pirou on

      Hong Kong is a great city for Shadowrun... I hope you won't contradict the canonical information found in the Runner Havens book though.

    21. George Kelion on

      YES! :-D Great choice of location and superb art, too - can't wait to back this!! Happy New Year, everybody!

    22. Tobi (Crusader Kickstarter pls!!) on
