I'm pleased to announce the release of Shadowrun Returns, Harebrained Schemes' Kickstarter-funded RPG based on the Shadowrun fantasy-cyberpunk PnP RPG and campaign setting. This is the first of the "big budget" Kickstarter RPGs, and as such its release is a momentous occasion, even if the game appears to not be what our former editor Vault Dweller would call a "full scale RPG". Here's the release trailer and some pep talk from the game's last Kickstarter update:

Hi everybody,​

Jordan here with our last update before Shadowrun Returns gets into your hands. (Wow, I can’t believe I just typed that!)​

I want to take a moment to personally thank you again for all your support over the last year or so. It’s been so great hearing from you on the forums, meeting you in person at cons, and eating the bagels and pizza you sent us. It’s definitely an experience I’ll never forget!​

I also want to publicly thank the team at Harebrained Schemes for all their incredibly hard work over the past year. What a great group of people! They’re passionate about making games, about working in a highly-collaborative, high-energy environment, and about making Shadowrun Returns. They’ve really risen to the challenge and it’s been a pleasure going on this adventure with them.​

On behalf of the team, I sincerely hope you enjoy Shadowrun Returns. It’s been a labor of love and represents one of the greatest collaborations of my career. Thanks again for the opportunity.​

Shadowrun Returns is currently available for download and purchase on Steam, while Kickstarter backers can get their DRM-free version at Harebrained Schemes' backer site. The GameBanshee staff have collated some pre-release reviews, and our own official review, written by the formidable Darth Roxor, will be arriving some time in the near future.

Well, my own copy has just finished downloading. Let's check this shit out.
