Newsbrief: Shadowrun Returns, the new PC and tablet game from series creator Jordan Weisman, has finished its successful Kickstarter campaign with more than $1.8 million in pledges.

The game, which earlier this month hit its initial $400,000 Kickstarter goal less than one day, promises to pay homage to the classic turn-based Shadowrun titles on the SNES and Genesis.

It's the latest game in a series that has enjoyed a cult following since its debut as a pen and paper RPG in 1989. After a long hiatus, the series saw a return in 2007 when Microsoft published a critically panned first-person shooter for PC and Xbox 360, but Shadowrun Returns is the first project in years to go back to the franchise's role-playing roots.

I was in for $30 on this, but I have to admit I am somewhat leery, considering the developer's previous titles essentially looked like GBA games and their focus on mobile gaming (as opposed to PC).

I don't expect much, but I have my fingers crossed it will look at least like the SNES version (which was isometric). But I have a feeling it will look (and perhaps even play like) Advance Wars on the GBA. Which was a good game, but...I was hoping for something more like X-com.
