Shadowrun Returns. Literally.



The world has changed…

Magic is no longer just for fairy tales. It’s real. While technology has merged with flesh to challenge the strength of old world sorcery. Now people are more than just people; after an unexplained genetic event, some of them have developed traits that have left them labeled as elves, dwarfs, orks, and trolls. And dragons aren’t just in picture books–they’re very real, and they’re running nations and some of the biggest corporations in the world.

People call it the Sixth World, and it’s not a friendly place. Mega corporations have ruthlessly consolidated power, and they make everyone, from the lowliest sage slave to the most powerful government leader, dance to their tune. Many people sell their lives to these megacorps, believing they have no choice. But there are a few who have the skills, the guts and the nerve to stay independent, finding a way to live in the gray areas of a world not built for them. They can survive–and if they’re real lucky–thrive in the corners and shadows of the world. They’re outlaws, but they’re tolerated by the powers of the world because they’re useful. They are called shadowrunners.

The Shadowrun universe has been around since the late 80's in many forms. From its' roots as a pen and paper role playing game, to video games across various consoles and PC generations, to collectible card games and fairly large miniature games.

Technology and magic mix with different races to create a unique future universe with lots of action and destruction. Here in 2013, they are upgrading the Shadowrun universe for 3 different platforms. Already out is the 5th Edition of the Shadowrun RPG. Later this year is another release of a card game, although not so collectible. That brings us to next week, July 25th... Shadowrun Returns!



It will hopefully be a true successor to the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis games from the 90's. Even though it is a single player game, it looks to be another great turn-based tactical RPG.

I was hooked on the SNES version of the Shadowrun game and soon after the Sega Genesis version. I was never into the pen and paper versions of anything and did not know of the Shadowrun universe.

That was back in the mid 90's. Thanks to Kickstarter and a few dozen people who want to revive this type of game, Shadowrun Returns has been created. This awesome project even includes a mission editor to create your own stories and missions.

Check out the Kickstarter campaign here for info during the campaign, or visit one of many pages for the Year of the Shadowrun!

If there are any Shadowrun fans out there or if you enjoy a futuristic fantasy turn based game, let me know. I may have a few Steam Keys available or much more.

And if you are really into old school gaming, Wasteland 2 is coming out later this year......

And for those who are too young.... Wasteland is the grandfather of Fallout......

I am somewhat disappointed in the game. The graphics and soundtrack are top notch, storyline is pretty good so far, but the actual game play is not so great.

A few people have noted that this is like a choose you own adventure book type game. It is nothing short of LINEAR and you go where the game tells you to go. The only choices so far are the RPG elements. You can change the look of your character, his/her abilities, the load out prior to each mission, but there is nothing to see or do outside of the storyline.

I hate the save game feature they have but like it at the same time. It is a checkpoint system save feature. Basically, it saves the game between major locations. There is just the one save game and you cannot save on your own, or go back to another save game to try different tactics.

If you have the Steam version, you can use their workshop to download missions, but that is about it.

They are working on another location for a future expansion (Berlin, I believe) but that is in the future and not now.

I hate giving games bad ratings unless they are really bad, but this is about 70 out of 100. 20 years ago the SNES/Sega versions were out and they were more sandbox than this release.

Graphics do not make a game!

I am a few hours in and I only had one 'Datajacking' tutorial. There is nowhere to hack in this game!
