For a while now, people have wondered what stretch goals the Shadowrun: Hong Kong Kickstarter campaign would have after the revamped Matrix at 700,000 dollars. The guys at Harebrained Schemes seemed reluctant to commit to anything, but now they've come up with something quite unexpected - another campaign! To be specific, a high-level "mini-campaign" that will take place after the main one, using an imported character. But we only get that if the campaign reaches one million dollars. The latest Kickstarter update has the details:
We get this question a lot (like, a LOT!) and today is the day we're gonna answer it!
We have our plans set for the story we want to tell in Shadowrun: Hong Kong, but if we’re lucky enough to reach the enormous sum of $1,000,000, we’re gonna create an additional 4-5 hourShadows of Hong Kong Mini-Campaign that takes place after the SR:HK story ends. Not only that, the Shadows of Hong Kong Mini-Campaign will allow you to IMPORT your high-karma Hong Kong character for a challenge only a prime runner could accept.
The Shadows of Hong Kong Mini-Campaign will come out sometime before the end of 2015 and will be free to Backers at the $15 pledge level and up. And you’ll receive as many copies of the Mini-Campaign as you are eligible for at your reward level. For example, if you get 3 copies ofShadowrun: Hong Kong at the $150 level, you’ll also get 3 copies of the Mini-Campaign.
Make sense? Good!
But no matter what funding level we reach, it's BONUS TIME!
Everyone who backs the project at the $35 Reward Level and above will get access to an AUDIO COMMENTARY TRACK from the Shadowrun Development Team. Hear the writers, designers, artists, engineers, and composer discuss how the game was made, the challenges they faced, and the fun they had while making the game. The audio commentary will arrive in an update after the game is released.
AND everyone who backs at the $35 Reward Level and above will also get TWO HIGH-RES DIGITAL POSTERS that, when placed together, combine into combine into a beautiful Shadowrun Panorama. The first poster contains a Timeline of Shadowrun History. The second contains a Glossary of Shadowrun Slang. Tell your friends!
Again, we can't thank you enough for the outpouring of support for a project we're delighted to be working on. Look for another peek behind the scenes soon, and please let us know if there's some element of game development at Harebrained Schemes you're interested in hearing about.
