Just two weeks until Shadowrun: Hong Kong arrives! As we’re wrapping things up here, we wanted to share one more thing real quick – some of the awesome work that our art team has been doing for SR:HK’s revamped Matrix. Check it out below!
What’s more, our composer Jon Everist has composed all-new Matrix music to go along with the new look. You can take an early listen here:
So that’s how the new Matrix looks and sounds, but how does it play? Well, we’ve revised a lot of Matrix systems and added some really fun new stuff such as Watcher IC and Blocker IC which really ramp up the tension of diving into cyberspace and provide a much greater variety of gameplay than before. We’d love to go into more detail but – every minute we can spend testing and polishing the game right now is vital. We hope to tell you more about Matrix gameplay in the coming weeks, or you can see it for yourself on August 20th!
One other thing – we know everyone’s anxious to get their keys, so we also want to let you know we’re in the process of getting keys and other rewards into your BackerKit accounts. Watch for an update soon announcing that they’re available, and for a general status update on the various Kickstarter rewards.
Note that your keys can’t be delivered to your account unless you’ve answered your survey. You can head to the SR:HK BackerKit page to double-check that you’ve answered your survey, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any help.
P.S. Thank you to all of you amazing Shadowrun fans that came by to say hi at Gen Con last weekend! We had an incredible show, with tons of love for Shadowrun, Golem, Necropolis, and BattleTech.
