Harebrained Schemes LLC has a kickstarter to raise money for a new Shadowrun game!



Kickstarter, a website allowing folks and corporations to ask for donations for projects and business ideas, has become a bit of a hotbed of game projects. Tim Schafer raised an absolute ton of money to create a new adventure styled game and now Shadowrun may have it’s seeds planted as well.

A group calling themselves Harebrained Schemes LLC is asking for 1.75 million (and darn close to getting it) to build and release a new game in the famous Shadowrun universe. The pen and paper RPG series, and classic snes game, has a great following and I’m sure they are all salivating over the possibilities of what could come from this project.

    As long as it is a REAL Shadowrun game, unlike that abomination FPS that was put out. I expected an actual SR experience, but instead got a crappy FPS with absurd control schemes that made me want to slit my throat, fill an envelope with fresh arterial blood and mail it to FASA Interactive… or am I being too harsh?

    I remember spending a lot of time with the Super Nintendo version, and woud love to see a game that had that much time and care put into it be released.

      The Sega Genesis version had its charms as well. I think I enjoyed the cyberspace sections better. They had more of a “Lawnmower Man” vibe to them. Giant floating nodes taunting you as you hurl lightning bolt hacktools at them. To date, I play the crap out of the ROM on my emulator. Thank God for fair use policy.
