Fans are plenty excited about the video game revival of the Shadowrun series in Shadowrun Returns, and they've shown it by stepping up with more than $1.8 million in funding for Harebrained Schemes' Kickstarter initiative. That's a significant amount more than the $400,000 that Harebrained originally sought, a goal that the project managed to achieve in just a single day.
The final total falls at $1,836,447 pledged for Shadowrun Returns by 36,276 backers, and that's just on Kickstarter. The final update for the project notes that the PayPal-centered funding initiative for the game -- estabished to allow those without credit cards to contribute -- stands at more than $50,000. You can still put down money there for what is essentially a pre-order at this point as well.
This is where the hard work begins for Harebrained of course, with the team now having to deliver on a project that fans have placed so much faith in.
