Well, I want it. Also I'm curious to see how 2050 will work running in SR4A. It's something that comes up a lot here.

And have you read what you get for the pledges?
Especially at 10k it's insane!
Might actually enable CanRay to play for once, if he is willing to pay 10.000$ for it *snickers*

I was unaware the Microsoft licensed the interactive rights away.

But apparently JW secured the rights in 2007 after the MS's abortive FPS died a grisly death.

Outstanding! =)

Is... is that a troll with a green lightsaber?

EDIT: Oh, he's supposed to be lighting a cigarette on something like a blowtorch. Although it could be a lightsaber and he's lighting up on it...

I will most likely spend 115 dollars on this one.

Already did it for Wasteland 2 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/grinbig.gif)

I don't think that's strictly true. They use Amazon.com's checkout mechanism, so presumably Amazon.com store credit and anything else supported by their mechanism would work. Worth a try.

Kickstarter takes pledges, not payments. No payment is actually made unless their goal is reached.

To accomplish this they have to use a payment gateway that supports longterm payment authorization and optional cancellation.

Most don't. Amazon does. You can see why they went with Amazon. <shrug>

Are we sure it's using SR4A? I'm kind of hoping it isn't...I like a lot about 4A rules, but erasing the difference between mages and shamans really destroyed a lot of the flavor. Besides, the 4A Matrix rules are intended for a world where wireless is ubiquitous; 2050 is a land of cyberdecks.

For anything computer based, they should use the SR3 rules.
These were hell to do in person, but with a computer taking the work away, they have more merrit for the game than the SR4 rules . .

It's taking place in 2050. Likely to use hybrid rules nearing 2nd ed.

Seeing the description of the 4 classes and the way they see the world, I think they'll use some custom rules.

1. No, this is not a joke. Shadowrun Returns is a real thing.

2. One of the FAQs on the Kickstarter page specifies that it's in 2050.

Erf! Good eye. Patrick.

But why!? Why? Assuming it's an IP issue until otherwise informed. Because otherwise... why? =)

Yep, i think it's better to use custom rules even if it will be turn based.
Too complex for a cRPG, maybe not to play but to implement at least (especially for a low budget game).
Damn i hope it will be funded, very excited about this even if after my pledge for W2 i'm a "little" short.
I still remember of the SNES game,it was great (was not turn based though).
