As we head toward the release of Shadowrun: Dragonfall at the end of January, we also continue to improve on, add features to, and fix bugs in Shadowrun Returns and the SR Editor.
Since our last update we’ve fixed lots of bugs but the most notable addition in Version 1.1.1 is that French, Italian and Spanish language options are now available. We are (anxiously) awaiting the German and Russian files back from the company doing those translations for us so that we can finish our localization work and make it available to German and Russian speakers.
Version 1.1.1 also contains more of the new Editor features we’ve been using to createShadowrun: Dragonfall so you can use them too. These include a revamped Thermometer to display more detailed scene performance metrics, a Get Count of Alive Actors data function trigger and a new Display Popup with image and caption. There are quite a few more as well.
You can check out a list of the bug fixes, features and additions on the New Releases page of the Shadowrun Returns wiki.
The end of the year always brings out “Best of” lists and we’re really thrilled to find ourselves on a few of those lists including:
- Game Debate: Global Game Award as Best RPG of 2013
- The AV Club: The AV Club’s Favorite Games
- Gamasutra’s Best of 2013: Alex Wawro’s Top 5 Video Games
- PocketTactics: RPG of the Year Runner-Up
You can still vote for Shadowrun Returns at two different websites. IncGamers.com has nominated us as Best Crowdfunded Game of 2013 and IGN.com has us up for a BLACK BETA SELECT AWARD as 2013 Best Indie. Voting is ongoing so you can still head over to both those sites to vote. (You’ll be eligible for a $2000 gift card over at theIGN.com site, too. You’ll need to add 0111 to your phone number if you’re in the US.)
We want to give a heads up to all the SNES Shadowrun fans out there! JR Riedel and his team are creating a reboot of the SNES Shadowrun game using the Shadowrun Returns Editor. A Joystiq article about this effort just came out today and we can’t wait to play it ourselves!
It’s been a hell of a year here and none of it would be possible without the continued support of our amazing Kickstarter Backers. THE YEAR OF SHADOWRUN has been fun and exciting and heartwarming and very, very challenging and we deeply appreciative of the opportunity to make Shadowrun Returns for you.
From Jordan, Mitch, and everyone at Harebrained Schemes, we wish you a very happy holiday season!
See you in 2014!
And remember - “Never trust a dead man.”
