With the kickstarter building Shadowrun hype, what better time than now to get this rolling?
We're doing the script now, hacking is in the preliminary stages.
Most English speaking Shadowrun fans are pretty familiar with the SNES and Genesis versions, but there was a Mega CD installment released only in Japan that's completely different from the others. Created by Compile in conjunction with Group SNE, the role playing company that published the Shadowrun game books in Japan, the Mega CD version is part digital novel, part RPG.
The game is broken up into several chapters, and focuses on a group of four Shadowrunners in Tokyo, a long ways from the Seattle setting of the previous games. The investigation scenes are much like Snatcher, with a single still picture representing the location and little portraits of the people you can talk to. Everything is menu-based, but is all incredibly simple.
Here's some screens.
As I've mentioned, the battles in the game are done in SRPG format, and before attacking, you roll dice to determine damage inflicted, and if the attack even hits at all.
It's some fun stuff.
US/Edits (Rough Stages)
I've long wanted to play this game in English. I'm honored to be a part of the project.
Hopefully you enjoy playing it as much as we'll enjoy working on it.
We'll keep you posted.
