The Shadowrun universe allows players and developers to imagine a high-tech environment that also has space for more magical elements, as sci-fi and fantasy ingredients combine, with humans, elves, dwarves, orcs and trolls co-existing (or not) within the same society.

'Shadowrun Returns,' itself the product of a successful Kickstarter drive, led to the standalone expansion 'Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut' in September 2014, while players were encouraged to come up with their own scenarios and stories, sharing them from within the game's own freely accessible level editor.

The 'Shadowrun: Hong Kong' Kickstarter runs until February 17 and met its $100,000 target within 2 hours.

Further stretch goals include extra side-missions for the game's new characters, improved sound, animatic scene transitions and story endings, and a revamping of several systems that underpin the game.
