I just saw this pop up on Steam, Shadowrun Hong Kong!
I was hoping this is available right now, but it’s slated for ‘summer’ which is soon!
With any luck, later on it’ll come to Android too.
Anyways for those of you who don’t know Shadowrun started life as a FASA based tabletop game, then made the transition later to a video game for the SNES, and Genesis.
Shadowrun is set in a dystopian cyberpunk future that blends magic and dragons as well. Â It’s very similar to Palladium’s RIFTS which introduced a world with technology and magic, although it wasn’t as focused on the new and exciting genre of cyberpunk.
Those who loved the top down game, were later saddened with FASA’s demise. Â Microsoft picked up the property and in 2007 released their own spin on the game. Â It was not well received. Â In a nice twist of fate, the game was re-licensed to the original developers who release Shadowrun games to this day.
.And yes, while I’m on the gratuitous Hong Kong action there is always Sleeping Dogs.
Besides that, what else is there?
is Wan Chai Market anything like it is in Deus Ex?
I think Sham Shui Po is more fun… But my office is in Wan Chai, I’ll take pictures next week!
Funny to see this pop up here. I met with one of the creators of this game not too long ago. Smart guy… The studio is about a mile from where I live. Though TBH, I’d never heard of it until recently. Small world huh?
You know in a round about weird way, it doesn’t surprise me at all. It’s a big world, and a large internet, but we all seem to gravitate to the same interests…
I’m looking forward to the name game, for sure!
