Jordan Weisman, the creator of Shadowrun, is back and Shadowrun Returns (for Apple & Android tablets and PCs) is the game that Shadowrun fans have been waiting for a long time. A graphically rich 2D turn-based single player game with deep story interaction, meaningful character development, and highly-contextual tactical combat, Shadowrun Returns is not only going to make some old geeks (like us) very happy but it will introduce new players to a dynamic gaming universe that is beloved around the world.
The developer of the 2007 abomination (a crappy counterstrike ripoff that was completely misplaced) apologised for his mistake in this one. But yeah, Shadowrun! With old school Fallout like mechanics! SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.jpg

I wonder if they'll accept 'sold a kidney' money. Not my kidneys, of course. I'm sure I'll find willing 'volunteers.'
Edit - I just found a mention of this tidbit.
One of the things that we feel most strongly about is that the world of Shadowrun was created for all of us to tell stories within. That’s one of the beautiful things about in-person tabletop role-playing—the stories are extremely relevant to you and your friends because they were made by you and your friends.
In honor of that tradition, we plan to release our PC-based level editor when we release Shadowrun Returns so that everyone can create their own Shadowrun stories & “runs”. When you upload your stories, you can make them available to your Friends Only or the entire Shadowrun community.
So it has a level editor/creation kit. I do believe there are several folks out there (hey Wyld! ) who will go all a-quiver at that bit of news.
