To us, the most rewarding part is all the emails, messages on SRR forums on Shadowrun.com, Facebook posts and tweets that have come from the community! We worked really hard to listen to your feedback and build on the success of Shadowrun Returns and we’re happy to see that the changes we’ve made are resonating with you.

That said, we admit that it’s also been gratifying to get some nice reviews from the critics, too. Here are a few of our favorite quotes and links to their reviews.

The new campaign setting is utterly compelling, the writing is some of the industry’s finest with astounding prose and character development and the added content simply equates to an experience that is only rivaled by the genre’s best.

Jacking back into Shadowrun Returns for the new Dragonfall campaign, I thought I was ready for anything. In a post-magipocalypse future where trenchcoated, wizardly elves cast shield spells on hacker allies while orcs with machine guns shower them with lead, it pays to be prepared. Dragonfall managed to get the drop on me, though. I wasn’t expecting one of the most memorable and complex RPG stories of the decade.

Now that’s more like it. Choice! Side-missions! A hub! A strong supporting cast who are up for a bit of a chat! Little-to-no mandatory decking sequences! A mother-lovin’ save (almost) anywhere system!

There’s nary a dull moment in Dragonfall, and every mission is crafted to capture the right mix of mystery, fear, exploration, and action.

We’ve had a blast developing this expansion and would love to create more stories in the Shadowrun Universe! To do that, we need to continue to get the word out.  We’re an indie studio and don’t have the deep marketing pockets of a big publisher so we’d appreciate it if you’d share these links with friends and forums you think would like Dragonfall!

Thanks!
