General: Shadowrun Online Kickstarter Debuts Prototype Gamplay Video

MikeBMikeB MMORPG.com Community ManagerQueens, NYPosts: 5,724Administrator Uncommon

Cliffhanger Productions, the folks behind Kickstarter project Shadowrun Online, a hopeful cross-platform MMO (PC/Mac/Mobile) based on the eponymous cyberpunk pen-and-paper IP, has released a pair of new videos for the project today.

The first video offers backers and potential backers an update on the project but it's the second video that's going to be of interest to most of you as it offers a glimpse at prototype gameplay footage.

    Not quite sure what to think of it...

    Whoa!  Not what I was expecting. No donation for you.

    There is NO miracle patch.

    95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

    Hope is not a stategy.

    I have reviewed the new, updated Kickstarter info.... and I am now curious as to how this game will do. They are supporting dual, independant business models. This will really be interesting to see.

    Model 1: F2P with Item Mall and/or Monthly Sub (F2P Servers)

    Model 2: B2P with Item Mall items sold for in game currency (B2P Servers)

     

    Customers will be able to choose which server set to play on.. so it will be interesting to see what is chosen. Will players choose to pay up front (B2P) or choose to pay as they go (Monthly Sub/Item Mall).

    I loved the Sega Genesis gme Shadowrun which was also based on the pen and paper game.   Hope this game turns out to be fun!

    I don't think this is enuff to dismiss it outright.  It looks like it could have potential as being different then your standard themepark mmo. I'll wait to see and hear more.

    Seriously?  Ya'll do not like this?  It is like the SNES Shadowrun AND Fallout Tactics.  This is full of win.

    And no,  not being sarcastic.

    Shadowrun.  :3

     

    Posted from my Iphone.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    I love the ShadowRun setting, but this type of gameplay doesn't really impress me at first glance. We're all spoiled by shiny graphics I guess. However, if they can make the runs interesting, then maybe it's worth keeping an eye on.

    Amen. They are making a game for SR folks, not the masses. That makes this game full of win.

    Seeing people mention fallout tactics makes me sad because i know the only fallout ill ever see again is the FPS version which doesn't feel like fallout at all. =(

    Well, youre in luck because the game that was the precursor to Fallout, a game called Wasteland,  is currently in development:

    I luved the shadowrun books! Luved the Genesis and SNES games!

    While I prefer 1st person, over head or over shoulder view playstyle I came to enjoy the isometric view of the console versions.

    They will get my money!

    Bring it on!

    People liked Path of Exile, i'm sure this will have it's place. I'll be sure to watch for it.

    Looks like a tactical squad based game, though without a squad perhaps?

    The SNES shadowrun game was bloody amazing.. i must have played through it about 20 times.. Probally one of my all time favourite games..

     

    As for this it does look quite good.. IF you want to get a taste of what its gonna play like then give Jagged Alliance Online a go as they did that as well.

    What Spooky, MikeB & Khal all said. This looks refreshing with the right emphasis on GAMEPLAY.

    The missions are all laid out for co-op (so multiple characters), but you can also hire some runners (you can control) in order to play alone. So yes, it's squad-based so to say.

    This is explained in the update vid before the alpha footage one:

    I am sick and tired of these developers making a game that would be great as a singleplayer (or even a 2-4 player coop) game but they decide to turn it into an "online mmo" type thing. It's just greed.

    "Why would we make a game that people give is their money once for?.... We can charge them a monthly fee or a pay to win cash shop and get lots more money".

    ..... The reason...... MMOs are watered down as hell because it's not very viable to have an evolving changing world where later players won't get to experience it.

    As a singleplayer/coop game..... This would have been awesome. As an online mmo. It looks total crap!

    "It's like a finger pointing away to the moon... Don't concentrate on the finger or you'll miss all the heavenly glory" (Bruce Lee)

    (Insert your favourite mmo here): ......And behold, a pale horse.... And a million hellishly bad mmos followed with it.
