Shadowrun Online Kickstarter adds Linux and Ouya support
Cliffhanger Productions has released a new video update for its Shadowrun Online Kickstarter project, which provides specifics regarding in-game missions, security alarm status levels for “stealth and infiltration tactics,” the action and combat system, and how the game will blend a turn-based and action into a multiplayer title. The firm has also announced the game will support Linux and the Ouya console, alongside the aforementioned PC and Mac.
“Adding these platforms will make Shadowrun an even better cross- platform experience! We are very happy to be able to add Linux, which has a dedicated following amongst gamers, and connect all our players into one base,” said Cliffhanger co-founder Michael Paeck. “You can now easily play the game on your tablet, switch to your desktop PC and then later enjoy it on your Ouya-connected TV – without ever having to switch your account or character or suffer from restrictions based on your device.
“One of the advantages of our fluent turn-based system is the ability to engage in a multiplayer session with or against others without the usual frustrations when different players have different connection or input speeds.”
The Kickstarter still has 7 days left to reach its $500,00 goal, and 2,627 backers have pledged $212,279. Go toss money at it here.
