Shadowrun Returns $1M Milestone

The Kickstarter Page for Shadowrun Returns celebrates the $1,000,000 in pledges Harebrained Schemes' upcoming Shadowrun revival has attracted. This results in this trailer explaining how these funds will be used to add more elements to the game, and outlining their next goal, saying if they reach the $1.5 million mark they will construct a "backer's only exclusive mission" as a "little reward." The clip concludes saying they have "some pretty twisted ideas" of what to do if they receive even more funding (as if "more elements" wasn't twisted enough). Interestingly, some of the comments express unhappiness at the prospect of exclusive content for backers.

I knew it was only a matter of time before someone dropped a turd into the Kickstarter punch bowl, but I didn't think it would be this soon.

Coming Soon: Donate $59.99 to the Kickstarter campaign and get excluse access to the whole game, which will be sold piecemeal to everyone else for the combined total of $200!
You mean like this?

$50 gets you all 3 episodes. I have no idea what they will charge everyone else, but its probably going to be higher.

I'm surprised they actually made their funding target doing it like that. I won't be supporting them now or later with that sort of greedy attitude.

I don't think it's greed, it's about making smaller games on smaller budgets. And by kicking in more money up front, you're getting 3 smaller games. The FAQ specifically states "Chapter 1 of the game will not be a short 2-hour fling. Depending on how much we raise during this campaign the length of the game will vary."

As I've said before, KS donors need to remember we're dealing in a much smaller scope here. The games, while they have the potential to be great, will not be like other games with huge budgets.

Hopefully, with the budgets they're getting, they will choose to focus on gameplay over frills. (I don't doubt that they will, but we've not seen one of these to completion yet, either.)

But please, let's not play the greed card yet. Let's see what that first episode looks like before we make any judgment.


I doubt they will get $1.5 Million in the time left

I agree, it looks a little iffy. But they did just get another $25 out of me for a boxed copy. The important thing is they make sure the money they have is used to meet the expectations of the backers. And I really hope they do, as it looks like it could really be amazing, if they did.
