So in my journey through the vast landscape of the internet, I found this little morsel.

www.wiredreflexes.com

It appears to be an online browser based Shadowrun game. I'm not sure but I think it's running off of SR3 rules. It's missing quite a bit but shows a lot of promise

There's a link on the bottom of the page referring to the Shadowrun Returns project. I wonder whether this is an early idea of the same guys.

A quick heads-up guys: this game doesn't (yet, anyway, dunno about the future) have any differentiation between login name and character name. So you'll want to give it whatever name you want for your character as your login name.

I'm emailing the guys who make it to look into changing it, because "ShadowDragon8685" is a completely retarded name for use in the Shadows of 2060.

Ahh, but you simply strive to be so badass that your name could be Suzie Que (as a male) and no one would bother to insult your name, lest they become pretty little smears on the plascrete...

"What's the 'eighty-six eighty-five' for?"

Alternatively, it could be date of birth, but only if the character is a Spike Baby elf. (Or, you know, an internet poster in 2012...)


I like your idea, but I'd still rather use the character name I intended. I didn't realize that it made your login name the same as your character name.


Oh, by the way? At present, taking A priority for nuyen is pretty damn pointless. I think it's literally impossible to spend 1,000,000 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nuyen.gif) on the things in-game yet, unless you like, but an absolutely ridiculous gigaassload of bullets. Also annoying is that you can't buy contacts, you have to make them, and instead of having Connections ratings, the only metric that determines what you can get is your Reputation.

So, basically, despite having started with enough cash out of chargen to buy all alphaware and the most SOTA gear available in 2060, I'm stuck rocking an Ares Predator, and I can't buy a cyberdeck because decking and the Matrix have yet to be invented.

No, it's not. I'm developing it and have been for a while. I wish I was part of Shadowrun Returns, but I'm not.

Please keep in mind that the game is far from finished or well-balanced and has very little content yet. As a result, I'm very eager to hear your ideas, suggestions and criticism, of course.

Oh that's yours? O.o
Nice one!
Takes a bit getting used to and has some stuff missing, but otherwise is pretty much how a shadowrun game should be . .

The one thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to reset your character/account, in case you wanted to start over?

I wanted to see how magic was implemented (built a dwarf sam).

My first run through of the ghoul den resulted in getting KO'd, as I couldn't figure out how to reload. Make the combat log blink/flash/or something to draw people's attention to it when there's a new entry, perhaps? And maybe auto-reload a weapon if it's out and you try to use it?

Overall, it's a fun little diversion. I find I just wish I could play around more with it, having to wait for the ghoul den to respawn atm.

You can go to the beta-tester's section of your safe house and delete your character to start over.

Again, and I can't reitterate this enough; the game is not even 10% complete. It's lacking in content. It's not properly balanced yet. There's many things that require our attention (like stealth). It requires a lot of work to make it a proper game. If you want to play and give us your thoughts we appreciate that very much.

Well, for what you have, it's quite fun, and shows promise. My comment wasn't really to complain at lack of items, but to illustrate how I just want more, more more. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Thanks for the info on resetting! I was wondering what the "beta tester" function thing was for. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

OK, does anyone know how to cast a non combat spell in combat? I wanted to cast my armor spell but couldn't work it out, so when I attempted to retreat, I got KO'd.

AFAIK you can only cast direct damage spells (stunbolt, manabolt, powerbolt) in combat. The rest you cast of the magic page out of combat.

Well, I guess I wish this project success.

And hopefully Microsoft doesn't notice it, cos we've seen what happens then.

Microsoft doesn't own the electronic rights anymore, they are back in Jordan Weisman's (I hope I got his name right) hands. He's making a Shadowrun game himself but it's set in 2050 so there's no overlap.

I'm redoing the shop interface as we speak and this will definitely be part of that. The shop as it is now was done quick and dirty so that we had something with which you could buy things and was never meant to be used for long. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
