Shadowrun Online aims for Kickstarter funding

Eliot Lefebvre

Are you excited about the prospect of being able to play Shadowrun Online? You might want to vote for that with your wallet, as the developers have just put up a Kickstarter project to help fund further development of the title. But if you thought that the title would be setting the bar low for a browser and mobile-based client, think again -- the project is aiming for $500,000 total by August 14th.

Like every Kickstarter project, the game offers increasingly visible rewards to those inclined to drop the money, culminating in the $10,000 reward level that puts your face on billboards in the game. Lesser rewards include special backer images, guaranteed beta access, and of course, the gratitude of the project managers. So if you can't wait for the joy of playing a Decker in an online game, jump on over to the project and lay down your cash.
