I'm A Backer and...


I'm a backer, and if you like good RPGs, then you should be, too. There are four days left as of this writing. And what they've accomplished so far with their funding has already been incredible. There has already been enough funding to make it a primary goal for the project to be released on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. With that wide of a distribution, a large gameworld, shared friend characters, and a simultaneous release of developer tools, Shadowrun Returns promises to be an explosive revisiting of a fantastic gameworld setting.

If I pass my CCNA exam this week, I'm going to up my subscription level to the 125$ level for those sweet dogtags. I think that those are an excellent way to release a game with bonus material. But every penny you put into backing this game goes to making it a bigger, better story, with more characters, more locations, and more to do, and with better music. They even just announced that the original score designer will be working on the track for the new game. I hope to see everyone who backs it in the forums later... and possibly.. on the street in a backer t-shirt.

And finally, I leave you with music. One of the best songs I've heard lately, and a good cover of a great song:


Part of me believing it was always something that I'd done
But I don't wanna live that way
