First look at gameplay from upcoming Shadowrun Returns, coming soon to Android [VIDEO]


The boys at Harebrained Schemes have been putting their $1,895,722 dollars to good use, giving gamers everywhere their first glimpse at gameplay from their upcoming tactical, isometric turn-based RPG, Shadowrun Returns. The pen-and-paper role playing game was more than successful on Kickstarter, where the team managed to raise just a hair over their $400,000 goal, raking in the aforementioned $1.8 million in backing from gamers around the world.

If you’re still relatively new to planet Earth, Shadowrun is a franchise that’s been around for a long time, with a history spanning back to the early PC/ Super Nintendo era. Just to give you the gist of what Shadowrun is all about, it’s a rich world that manages to blend fantasy and cyberpunk, mixing orcs and cyborgs into a single setting that somehow work. Think Lord of the Rings meets Bladerunner, and you’re on the right track.

Keep in mind Shadowrun Returns is completely different from Shadowrun Online, a rehash of the old-school PC title that will making its way to OUYA and other Android devices at a later date. Shadowrun Returns is currently up for pre-order on PC and Mac for $15 with a general summertime launch date. It’s only after that, we can expect a release on Android and iOS tablets. So, it looks like we’ve still got a lot of waiting ahead of us, but in the meantime, grab a sandwich and check out this awesome 19-minute gameplay video from the creators, giving us a first look at the world of Shadowrun Returns. Dear, god… I’m drooling over here.
