Revitalized gaming properties and genres are all the rage this season, and one of our favorites has just gotten off to an explosive start on Kickstarter.com this morning: the return of Shadowrun as a 2D, turn-based strategy game for PCs and Tablets!  Jordan is the original creator of the Shadowrun pen and paper RPG, and his team at Harebrained Schemes will be building the game with Moai if it's successfully funded.

In their own words:

Shoot Straight. Conserve Ammo. And Never Cut a Deal With A Dragon.

Jordan Weisman, the creator of Shadowrun, is back and Shadowrun Returns (for Apple & Android tablets and PCs) is the game that Shadowrun fans have been waiting for a long time. A graphically rich 2D turn-based single player game with deep story interaction, meaningful character development, and highly-contextual tactical combat, Shadowrun Returns is not only going to make some old geeks (like us) very happy but it will introduce new players to a dynamic gaming universe that is beloved around the world.

If you're interested in this game or genre as a player or a developer - please back Jordan and the Harebrained Schemes team today.
