      FANTASTIC (and quite cosplay-worthy!) character designs- can't wait until this goes live.

      Hoi Chummers!

      Some more intel on the Dragonfall Expansion! (aka: "Berlin") in an interview with Mitch! ^_^

    3. Chris Opperman on

      Really cool. Looking forward to playing this.

      Damn, this looks promising.

      Cant wait for that silly Christmas thing to be over so the real Shadowrun goodness can be released.

      Hey, it's free. Ain't gonna complain about that.

    12. John on

      Can you tell us how Dragonfall will be released on iOS? Will save anywhere and other improvements be added to the existing Shadowrun Returns app? Will Dragonfall be an IAP or a separate standalone release?

    13. Simeon Gavalas on

      Save Anywhere and Shadowrun: Dragonfall free to Backers! The best update so far. Well done!

      (I will finally get to play Shadowrun! I did not dare play with the previous save mechanics, I didn't want to have my nerves wrecked).

    14. Mark on

      I'd love to see more blood and gore when things die in Shadowrun :)

    15. RC on

      Hoi Chummers!

      Ja Mata!

      Sebastian H.

      Yeah. I'm so looking forward to this.
      As a Berliner (Berlinean? Citizen of Berlin?) I Bad to vote for my home town (sorry Hong Kong, I hope it's your turn next).
      Seeing the Berlin TV Tower beside a pyramid looks so strange... can' t wait to see you take of what my City would look like in the shadows.

    20. Joshua R on

      Very cool! Can't wait to play this - just around the corner! Here's hoping for major success with SRR - I'd love to see another HBS content drop somewhere down the line. :]

    21. Cole Robotshenanigans

      Looks great! I'm happy we went with Berlin!

    22. Jordan "AstroCat" on

      Nice... and especially "Save Anywhere" being added to both modules. Very cool. :)

    23. ☜☆RSF☆☞ on

      Fantastic update HBS. Definitely a lot of work going on behind the scenes - and Berlin is looking awesome!! Thanks heaps & keep up the great work.

    24. The Evolutionary on

      The original release was a good but small start. Was moderately happy I backed the project but the save system was a little annoying and though the original content was small but appreciated the ability to create better game (Maybe I'll design a tech course around it...additional license purchases ;-) ) With the new patches and additional content, this is becoming one of the projects I'm most pleased to have backed. They are doing right by us and improving it all the time. You've earned our trust sincerely and I for one will be happy to back whatever projects you have coming in the future. You guys are proving awesome! I'm kicking myself for missing your last project and I'd really like to add funding for it! Any way I can add more support to your new project? (You tell people you've a loyal fan here.)

    25. Kraken on

      Still disappointed they didn't add Astral Perception to the game.
      It was promised in the original pitch and it could work with only some kind of additional shader (that's why I'm not asking about projection).

    26. twincast ~ Mangy WoOS-DOoD Mage

      Me likey. :D

      Not feeling articulate enough for further elaborations right now. ;P

    27. Ursula Maria Brand on

      Thanks for the new save system. That was the only thing that annoyed me in your beautiful game. Keep up the great work!

    28. gandalf.nho

      Great news, hope we can get GOG keys too

    29. British on

      Sounds nice.

      Here's hoping maps transitions will be faster as well.

    30. Juez on

      any news for the translation for non-English speaking players please?

    31. LuckyLuigi on

      Can't wait till january !

    32. Ryan "Keokuk" Smith on

      Great :) Like that the packaged deal is only 5 bucks more than the original price point.

      Seems like a good deal.

    33. Lost-brain -Obsidian Order Dark Goddess on

      Cool for the save system. the basic campaign doesn't needed it, but the mods... it's another story !

    34. ET3D on

      Save system is great news. I'll be waiting for this to make its way to Android so I can continue the game.

    35. Mikkel Kjær Jensen on

      Will the save feature be a part of the core game logic, so it also propagates to fan modules, or will modders have to implement their own solution?

    36. Dunkare on

      "Save Anywhere: You can save your progress at any time during the game. This functionality will also be added to the original Shadowrun Returns “Dead Man’s Switch” campaign."

      great! so i will be able to play this game after all! thanks for not ignoring this problem!

    37. S.D. on

      Thanks for the update, HBS. Berlin is looking real good, and I'm still digging on the main campaign while poking the mod editor a bit, here and there.
      Between the newly-arranged DRM-free distribution agreement, and the Linux game & editor working so well for me... well, you keep making new campaigns, and I'll keep buying them! B-)

    38. Hody72 on

      Any chance to get that wallpaper for Dual Screens would look awesome...

    39. Andinel on

      Any chance the iPad version of the game will see the expansion and the updated features?

    40. RC on

      SUH-WHEEEEET! Lookin good, Chummers! Lookin real good! What an AWESOME way 'ta start off da nu-year! 2013 wuz da year 'o Shadowrun, an 2014 looks 'ta be all about us, da year 'o da Shadowrunner! Eh, Chums!? Can't wait ta play SRR: DragonFall!! ^_^

      Azriel on

      Hell yea! Save anywhere and will be added to the original game also. After this comes out and the original game is patched, I can finally tell everybody to get it.

      I hope the devs listened to the fans on the other stuff. Specifically alternative options of play for each level (for every class of character besides combat oriented) and non violent solutions to problems without every game turning into a fight/gun fest. I specifically hope the decker (my favorite class) has been improved and can be more useful this time around. In dead mans switch, he was pretty useless because you rarely got to use him till near the end. I also did not like the dialog hacking, I MUCH preferred the matrix hacking which was more fun, but had the same problem of everything being action oriented instead of a stealth.sneaky hacker solution. Still, was fun, but could have been improved. Hope it is better in this campaign.

      Cutter on

      "First we take Manhattan. Then we take Berlin!"

      So is the Save function for everything now or just the two campaigns - because that would be odd and disappointing. Honestly, the lack of save has relegated it to a niche game. If the save works for everything there'll be some longevity in this title yet.

    43. Josh on

      "Save Anywhere: You can save your progress at any time during the game. This functionality will also be added to the original Shadowrun Returns “Dead Man’s Switch” campaign."

      Yay! This is really my only complaint about the game, so it's good you guys are still looking into that for serious =)

      EvAk on

      How many save slots are there for save anywhere, how does it compare to the checkpoint system?

    45. Ryan

      Not that it really matters to me cause I want as many people to hear about the game as possible because you guys deserve the attention.. but you said you were announcing this tomorrow, but you didn't make this a backer only update, so it is possible that some news vultures might post this before you announce it.

      Other than that CANT WAIT! especially for that save anywhere feature, i haven't played the game in a while and that was kinda wanna the things that was keeping me away. I just don't have time to play through an entire mission just to save. Was looking for a new game to play any way guess returning to an old one I haven't beat yet counts XD. Sad that this function isn't coming till January but maybe I'll get back into it before then, just so I can beat "dead mans switch" before berlin comes out.

    46. Marc Aranha on

      Looks great, HBS! Can't wait :) Love the new artwork.

    47. daskindt on

      Will we see more weapons of existing types? Missing pistols, smgs, rifles, ect? What about other types like machine pistols?

      Any changes to the cyberware system so we can actually install multiple systems into the same area? Like bone sheathing and wired reflexes both going in the body? Not much point to more cyberware if we still can't install it.

    48. Jim Todd

      I am not so much in a hurry to get save anywhere in the first campaign but I would like to know how we will get it...I am assuming we do not have to buy the new stuff to get the fix to the old. Will instructions come later?
