      So glad to be back again. I'm really excited for this next chapter HBS :)

      I'd love to back the new project, but unfortunately Kickstarter no longer accepts Discover Card as payment, so I'll have to wait for it to come out on Steam.

      yeah, RC, development.. cos the game engine needs to be redone .. oh wait. Yeah that is pretty much completed. Oh more models then ? More sidequests?

      I can see where people not bothering are comming from, tbh. I took the $15 pledge mostly to get the soundtracks, cause I reckon the price of the game will be about there as well outside kickstarter.
      They state that the game will be made regardless (and at this point it's already passed the funding goal anyway) so what should be the reason for people to do it now rather than just wait for the game to be released so they can look and purchase rather than purchase and look? There is very little incentive for people to 'jump in' compared to just waiting out till the game is released anyway without needing to risk their money.

      @Turk not "poor" - focused on funding development and not 1/3rd of funding or more going to rewards and shipping costs, meaning more invested in the devs making a better game. Which, is...AWESOME. MOAR SHADOWRUN, Chummer! ^_^

      looks kinda poor in comparison for the original ... physical rewards are poor , ingame stuff is ..poor

      Pledged! Wow, that met it's goal so quickly! Sad to see there won't be an iPad version so there's a string chance I won't actually be able to play the game, but still happy to contribute towards your noble effort!

      Let's see... Doc Wagons? Nope. Multiple "layers" to the worldview. Nope. Insulting Backer Only "bonus' dialogue? Check.

      I'll be keeping my money, thanks. At least this'll be the last ad posted here...

      Definitely planning to back this one. Just hoping that one of the as-of-yet unrevealed stretch goals is a physical copy of that new Hong Kong sourcebook for the tabletop game. I'm a big collector of the books, so I'd love to add it to my physical collection. :P

      Good thing I have played some Dragonfall for the first time recently. DMS was kind of...not good and I wouldn't have rebacked based soley on that. Dragonfall really shows me that you knew what worked and what didn't work from that first attempt and made something much much better and enjoyable. You seem to be on a roll now, can't wait for this third one :)

    11. Juez on

      In spanish this time pls... I cant play Dragonfall for the language but i love shadowrun returns :_(

    12. RC on

      Ahaha by the time Kickstarter got the email for this update to me, Shadowrun Hong Kong was already funded. ^_^

    13. Darklord on

      Yep backed it already. :)

    14. Jörn Huxhorn

      I was backer #85. ^^

    15. gandalf.nho

      Pledged too

    16. RC on

      @Wizfall be specific, Chummer! Say what you wanna see, so they can consider future stretch goals! ^_^

    17. RC on

      WOOOHOOOO!!!!! TOTALLY ROCKIN!!!! Pledged, 'inna heartbeat! ^_^

    18. Saodhar

      Already pledged there. :) Hoping for another greaty game.

    19. Donald M Pollack on

      Easy pledge, see you all in the far east!

    20. Wizfall on

      DMS (story/ambiance) and Dragonfall (bigger maps, better mechanics, less linearity) were great, I'm going to be in for sure !
      However animatic scene transition for stretch goals is disappointing IMO.
      I would have like so much better almost...anything else hehe.

      Aaaaaaaaaaand pledged.
