Awesome! I loved dragonfall and deadmans switch. Of they are kick starting more of the same then they can have all of my money. In fact I think ill start throwing it at the screen now just to be sure

Great news! Thanks for sharing this.

I will happily back this project. I hope they will offer great stories and characters as in Dragonfall (the run in DMS was pretty interesting too). And crossing my fingers for another anthology too!

Well, that is interesting : http://harebrained-schemes.com/about/job-openings/

Judging by the jobs descriptions, I would make the wild guess that the game is already being made and that it will use the Dragonfall DC engine. More good news.

Oh boy. Sounds like I'd better become active at SRU again and help the other mods out against people raging in a month.

Rage? Why? Hell if I know but I just know we're going to have quite a bunch.
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!

Rage? As in angry? Wonder how people would be angry at great news.

I bet you ten nuyen that there will be at least half a dozen people complaining about broken kickstarter promises in response to a new kickstarter, and I really wish I felt as if I was exaggerating there.

There are a lot of people that still don't understand that their are two games and two companies, HBS and Cliffhanger active right now. I love the work of HBS and will give Jordan money for anything he throws at us. He has never steered me wrong.

Cliffhanger on the other hand... :(

Naah, I won't take the bet, I know the Internet and the types of people who inhabit it.  ;)  I wasn't around the first Kickstarter project (bought the game when it hits GOG), but I sure hope it will go smoothly for you and your fellow mods on the other forum!

Yeah, Shadowrun Online is gathering a lot of bad reviews on Steam (even for an alpha access). I do not care much for MMO (I like to play a game alone, I have enough humans to deal with at my job sigh), but hopefully it will get better.

Here's a piece of look & feel concept art for our new setting. We'll show how it translates into Shadowrun's isometric gameplay view when our Kickstarter launches in January!

Man, Chicago would be cool. I'll take Chicago, though; Harbrained Schemes have my money for sure.

Chicago as a stretch goal?
Power corrupts.
Absolute power is kinda neat.
