There's a lengthy interview with Harebrained Schemes co-founder Mitch Gitelman up over at GameStar.ru concerning Shadowrun Returns.
Good, bad, evil… What about the morality in the game? If I join one of the malicious corporations will I be able to take over the world with it's help? Or maybe to cast the cyberpunk yoke off of the world by cunningly maneuvering between them? What are the limitls for player to affect the world of Shadowrun Returns?
Morality and limits. That’s two separate topics.
First, it’s important to remember that Shadowrun Returns isn’t a $30m, open-world, AAA game and won’t have big features like the ones you allude to in your question. What we do offer is the ability for people to create their own stories using the editor we’re releasing with the game. So if you want to tell a story that changes the world, you’ll have a tool to do so.
As to morality, our story, characters, and plot are pretty damn dystopian. Shadowrun isn’t much of a feel-good environment for gaming.
