Also, the guys at Cliffhanger Productions that are building Shadowrun Online, and everyones best buds at Catalyst Game Labs who bring us all our printed PnP game books and Novels, have joined Jordan Weisman (original creator of Shadowrun!) and his company HareBrained Schemes, in creating the new Shadowrun Universe - where 'runners go to dig up paydata 'n split hares (Hah HAHA HAHAHAHA...ha...ha....ahahahaha...)
And if you still want to get in on funding Shadowrun Returns with pledge rewards via PayPal, http://harebrained-schemes.com/shadowrun/paypal/ is still up and running at this time. So go Go GO!!! Because Shadowrun Returns is going to be AWESOME! ^_^
Way to preach it, REk.
Chumm number one.
i've been a true believer in Shadowrun since 1st edition was released. it is by far the most creative, interesting, and imaginative world i've ever seen created. i am proud to be a backer of this project, and only wish i had more money i could throw at you guys to help realize a product i've been wishing existed since i was 15 years old. congratulations a million times over and i'm so very grateful that you're out there, still giving us the incredible gift of your vision and talent. thank you!
Closed -- done. CONGRATS Chummers, for fraggin' crowdsource guru-ing your biz like a chiphead boostergang, then dumping the core back to your own mainframe with this Primerunner app, like BTL paydata on a chromed chipjack (or DNI deck) with more yank than a Ork dripping 'Dorph -- and then you stack a doubletap counterpunch of Phys Ads as an addon -- oh that was edgerunning with monowire slickness!
Top that with your 'Yak Attack' corp countermaneuver fixing our credsticks at the nanosec of midnight and letting hitcherdeckers juve-newbs join this next 'Run by falsefronting Kickstarter as your new corp Mr Johnson to smoke Lone Star enforcement with false sidejobs like Pebble (a bluetooth watch is edge? Ha! A street slitch has more tech in her anti-preg dermpacks! Did you get a corpdecker to fakedata that sheet?) with a 6.9mil Nuyen funded at 1k% with that op backdoor'ed to this account, ramjamming those creds like a sam's rippers thru the firewall and into the Shadows? Slot and run!
It's beyond nul sweat, it's a perfect crowdsource wetwork op.
We're just SINless meat to you, hey?
I'm not going to be comfortable till it comes out of my account.
Great job gang! Can't wait to play. Game on!
Waiting to post an update on my site too. Epic run you guys had! Can't wait for the game!
Actually, closer to 1.9 M. You forgot to include the Paypal backers.
Great news! I'm excited to see this happen, congratulations.
Plenty close enough. Asked $400k. Community responded with $1.8M. Kick ass.
I wonder when it gets taken out. The suspense is killing me.
Well...it didn't reach 2 mil but close enough
8 minutes, guys. I can't believe this thing is going to happen. And I would just like to say that by posting this project several times on my facebook, many people asked me "so what IS Shadowrun?" and my response interested enough people that I've managed to rustle up a good-sized team of runners for a campaign over the summer, after I had given up hope of such a thing happening several years ago. Thanks for bringing Shadowrun back, both in this form, and in the form of my new rookie team of runners!
That, unknown, special ability is taunting me!
Decided that I would donate my weekend's wages from my improv comedy gig... $125 is yours.
Thank you for the hours and hours I spent playing Shadowrun on the SNES.
Since you're getting stars involved -- laterally -- please please *PLEASE* just ask or tweet or email (whatever works) a few famous musicians to make songs for this game. I have no beef with the original composers, but I think you'll be surprised if you ask a few BIG musicians for contributions.
I mean forward-thinking cutting edge bands like Trent Reznor, Crystal Method, Prodigy, various SMART rappers (incl MIA & OG's like Ice T & Ice Cube), Ministry, FatBoySlim, Moby, DEVO, Pixies/FrankBlack/Breeders/KimDeal, Neon Trees, etc ...
I know this sounds farfetched -- but maybe one or more of them knows of this world & they love it???
Second point -- one of my fav CD's is the soundtrack to Strange Days, which is basically a ShadowRun movie without the fantasy aspects. So some edgy songs like that could go far.
Strange Fruit - No White Clouds -- wow.
Skunk Anansie -Selling Jesus -- wow.
You guys get the idea, right?
If you ask, you just might get it. And how cool would that be? - rekzkarz
I think a nice thing would be to show the western world that japanese only Shadowrun game. Something I didnt even know existed until today.
Wow Adam! That's a nice idea. Send Joss Whedon an email! :D
can someone somehow include a platypus into the game? :D
Shall I make a Firefly quote and let the world know that we are, indeed, mighty? Look at we did! Almost raised, what, 2mil? For a series that has only had two decent video games in 20 years (three if you count the Japan-only Sega CD game)? There's the PnP (which is why I'm here, of course), but not everyone's ever played that. Gamers are actually kinda a minotrity. So we are mighty, indeed!
Man, I can't wait to play this game...
This game is going to be about 20% cooler than the SNES Shadowrun! So Sayeth we all.
@Michael Miguel-Sanchez I hope so, cause I want to update mine to a higher one cause of how awesome it is.
@Terris Harned: Totally agree with everything you said! (except maybe that dead part :P )
@HBS: Thanks for the awesome ride! Here with you all till the final countdown :D
I loved Shadowrun and XCOM. The idea of them coming together so to speak is definitely what made me sign onto this endeavor!
Can we use the "Upgrade from a Previous Tier" option with PayPal to upgrade after the Kickstarter 'drive' finishes, even if our main pledge is via Kickstarter?
I'm really happy to be a part of this project, even if it's just from a contribution stance. Shadowrun has been a favorite for ages. I'm looking forward to tons of intrigue, mystery, action, and maybe even a little down and dirty romance (The kind where she's already dead ;) )
LET GET THAT NEW CHARACTER :D
I think I'll up my pledge too. I have high hopes for this game!
I like pie!
Argh! Pledge upped :-)
Caught up in the moment :-D
Also any idea for a stretch goal should this hit the 2 million?
Are you guys doing a stream of the countdown or something??
I really wish I could up my pledge. but on a fixed income i can only do what I did, I am just so Happy this game is coming.
If Jordan wants, I just gave some friends dance lessons, I can do one for him as well... though he'd have to meet up with me in either Italy or Cyprus ;)
Woot! Adepts for the win! What's the next goal? Unfortunately, I've already maxed out what I can give, but I still have some friends I haven't mugged yet...
I'm so exited about this you can literely se the amount of money growing by the minute
Wow....you guys made it to 1.75! What were you going to add for that again?
Ah right, I thought the time on my Kickstarter page was local. Still... 8am on a Sunday? ;-)
I raised at last my pledge to push it up to 1.75.
All $15 follow me!
@PaulEMoz they posted that there were 12 hours to go at 8pm UK time, so surely that means it'll finish at 8 am UK time tomorrow?
Actually it finishes at 3am EST. Over there in the uk it should be at around 8am shouldn't it? That being said HBS should do a live video of you all goofing off at the office and generally being excited for the last hour or so! that would be cool!
Update spam D:
Finishes at 3am. Damn keyboard. Damn lack of an edit button!
Ahh, it finished at 3am here in the UK. I'll not be up then. I might double my pledge to the $60 level instead...
Know you guys will do this project proud. And always glad to see more self funded guys getting going in Seattle!
> We hope you stop by to countdown until midnight, hang out, and watch together!
Oh, God, that's about 4:30 AM here in Brazil :( First you make me spend an amount of money that I couldn't spend, now you'll make me stay awake the whole night... please, stop it! ^_^
