Set in the not too distant future, Shadowrun Returns will meld a world of magic, computers, orks and trolls. This is cyberpunk jacking in to classic fantasy.
Shadowrun was created as a pen and paper, table top game about 25 years ago and now its being delivered as a single player turn based tactical rpg to your computers. Lets see if you can run Shadowrun Returns system requirements...

We are loving this classic table top resurgence, Space Hulk, Chainsaw Warrior and now this. Indie devs are being marked as reliable custodians of long standing cult franchises. This means that we are seeing titles that would traditionally be overlooked and we are seeing them reach our games machine more quickly. This bodes very well for the direction of gaming as it moves further afield from the usual staple of publisher giants and gives way to innovation.
