Shadowrun Returns in May/June 2013?

A Thanksgiving Kickstarter update from Harebrained Schemes LLC offers a hearty "thank you" to supporters of Shadowrun Returns, their upcoming tactical RPG revival (thanks nin). The post is a bit of a ramble, but it does contain a potential release window for the game, as they have decided their original goal of a January release is not realistic:

As we announced a few months ago, we’ve backed off our original delivery date of January 2013. It might’ve worked for the scope of the game we originally envisioned but as our ambitions (read that “features list”) grew, so did the time we needed to deliver! Plus, we made a big move from our original top down camera to an isometric point of view and that took serious R&D time. Right now, according to our estimates, we’re looking at May or June.

We’ve spent the majority of our time getting our game engine, art pipeline and base gameplay up and running and we’ve covered a lot of ground to get a lot of systems in place. Our engineering team has been crunching off and on for months to maximize the amount of time our designers will have to create our story.

More than that, there's at least 517 people with the level editor in advance of the game to work on their own fanfiction scenarios (100 of which bought out the entire tier at $500/each to get their missions identified with a special icon).

Add that everyone will have access to those tools after game launch, should be some interesting competition for who has the best rated/most downloaded missions.


I guess I'd totally forgotten about that feature. That sounds awesome, and should extend the life of the game nicely.
