Shadowrun Online Releases Gameplay Footage

The Kickstarter campaign for Cliffhanger Productions has reached its final week. As a result, Cliffhanger Productions is releasing information on their Shadowrun Online game, particularly two videos that explain the game’s multi-layered world view concept as well as preparation missions known as ‘legwork.’

Shadowrun Online is based on the tabletop RPG game Shadowrun, a game where fantasy creatures and cybernetics coexist. The game seeks to replicate the tabletop RPG experience for players and help immerse them in the immense world of Shadowrun.

The game’s multi-layered world view allows players to have a unique perspective on the environment, NPCs, and enemies depending on their skills and abilities. These unique perceptions will encourage players on a team to help with each out, using their abilities to aid in tactical decisions; it will also allow individual players to view the game from different perspectives.

The Kickstarter campaign has raised over $250,000 and has not only gathered the support of fans of the tabletop RPG but also of the original co-creator Tom Dowd and numerous other writers and artists who worked on the books. There is also an AMA on scheduled on August 8th at 3 P.M. EST.
