Shadowrun Returns: Deluxe Edition free on Humble Bundle (1 day+ as of posting)


Shadowrun Returns: Deluxe Edition Free on Humble Bundle.

Shadowrun Returns Deluxe is provided via Steam key for Windows, Mac, and Linux. For key redemption, a free Steam account is required.

DESCRIPTION
The Shadowrun Returns Deluxe product contains the following content:

Shadowrun Returns base game
Shadowrun Returns Anthology DLC
Shadowrun Returns Soundtrack DLC
Shadowrun Returns Soundtrack
From the composers of the much-loved Shadowrun SEGA and SNES games, the Shadowrun Returns Soundtrack will pay homage to the classics but with a modern twist.

Shadowrun Returns Anthology
Explore the world of Shadowrun Returns even more with an illustrated PDF of short stories written for the game and edited by Jordan Weisman, the creator of Shadowrun.

About the Game
MAN MEETS MAGIC & MACHINE. The year is 2054. Magic has returned to the world, awakening powerful creatures of myth and legend. Technology merges with flesh and consciousness. Elves, trolls, orks and dwarves walk among us, while ruthless corporations bleed the world dry. You are a shadowrunner - a mercenary living on the fringes of society, in the shadows of massive corporate arcologies, surviving day-by-day on skill and instinct alone. When the powerful or the desperate need a job done, you get it done... by any means necessary.

In the urban sprawl of the Seattle metroplex, the search for a mysterious killer sets you on a trail that leads from the darkest slums to the city’s most powerful megacorps. You will need to tread carefully, enlist the aid of other runners, and master powerful forces of technology and magic in order to emerge from the shadows of Seattle unscathed.

The unique cyberpunk-meets-fantasy world of Shadowrun has gained a huge cult following since its creation nearly 25 years ago. Now, creator Jordan Weisman returns to the world of Shadowrun, modernizing this classic game setting as a single player, turn-based tactical RPG.

Key Features

Gripping Tactical Combat: When you’re running the shadows, every turn matters. Choose your actions wisely - move to better cover, charge into melee, or lob a fireball into a crowd of enemies. With the variety of weapons and spells at your disposal, every turn is filled with meaningful choices. A successful run requires commanding a team of runners with the right balance of combat, tech, and magical abilities.

Skill-Based Character Progression: Choose a starting character archetype and build from there! Street Samurai and Physical Adepts use advanced combat skills to dominate the battlefield, Shamans and Mages summon powerful allies and cast deadly spells, while Riggers and Deckers provide critical technological support, projecting their consciousness directly into drones and computer systems. Shadowrun Returns’ classless skill system allows you to grow your character in any direction you choose. Want to start summoning spirits as an ork Shaman and evolve into a cybered-up weapon specialist? Do it!

Engaging 2D/3D Art Style: Shadowrun Returns mixes dynamic 3D characters and lighting with a vibrant, hand-painted environment. Illustrated character portraits bring every conversation to life. Explore a world filled with detail, from the slums of the Redmond Barrens to the extravagant offices of powerful corporations.

Love this game.

The sense of "home" i got, coming back to the bar after missions toward the end of the game is one of the fondest moments I have in gaming.

For extra nostalgia and frustration try the SNES remake on the steam workshop.

I think I tried it for a short while and was like “nah. I love the original too much to see it like this”. It was a neat attempt, but it’s like looking st your loved one as a zombie.

Sad that HBS sold out to Paradox.

All the bullshit these guys who have big success on crowdfunding sites go on about "We need to be independent to keep our creative vision free of an overlord..." and "Publishers don't want to make these kind of games..."

Yet the first thing a lot of these guys do (Obsidian, InXile, HBS, and so on) is create a distro deal and get right in bed with the publishers they scorned in their kickstarter and fan funded pitches to begin with.

It's a special lump of horseshit with Mitch and Jordan because they sold FASA to Microsoft and we know what happened there. Battletech and Mechwarrior dumped into the trash, Shadowrun raped into a Counterstrike clone (and a bad one at that) and eventually FASA closed down and none of their IPs to see the light of day for around a decade after the last MechAssault (a franchise barely worthy of carrying the BattleTech name).
