After Shadowrun Returns Kickstarter hit its original fan-funding goal of $400,000 within 28 hours, it was clear the campaign for a new cyberpunk RPG had (augmented) legs. Would-be deckers, street samurai and magicians came out in force to chip in, and funding finally wrapped up on Sunday with a whopping great grand total of $1,895,772.
The Kickstarter ended at $1,836,447, with pledges via Paypal made up the rest. Hitting the $1.75 million milestone means Shadowrun Returns will have the promised Physical Adept class too, a sort of magical ninja.
Shadowrun Returns will come to PC, Mac, Linux, iPad, and Android tablets. Check out our interview with creator Jordan Weisman for chat on Shadowrun, cyberpunk, the pressures of fan-funding, MechWarrior, and more of my blather.
Alice O'Connor posted a new article, Shadowrun Returns Kickstarter ends at $1.9 million.

I'll note that the promised Shadowrun Universe community site is now up at www.shadowrun.com though its a bit bare bones at the moment and the servers are a bit stressed by the sheer number of users.
Aww snap, I totally forgot to participate on this :(
I guess I'll be buying it full price with no bonus when it comes out...
I'm actually glad about this Kickstarter trends going up. More PC (and multi platform games) and none of the vendor BS preorder/limited specific bonuses. And it actually will be an incentive for developers coming straight from the buyers. Win-win overall!
If they still accepting Kickstarter, could someone let me know? I wanna contribute.
