Default Shadowrun Returns - GenCon Updates

August 20th, 2012, 13:28
Harebrained Studios has posted some updates from their time at GenCon, including concept art of the basic in-game look for Shadowrun Returns they are shooting for:
While this is concept art not a screenshot its representative of the fidelity and art style were shooting for. For the uninitiated (or those seeking a quick refresher!) the concept above depicts the infamous Redmond Barrens* of the mid 2050s.
The game environment will be composed of painted 2D elements, so we should be able to deliver the level of detail, depth and expressiveness that you see here. Characters in Shadowrun Returns, on the other hand, are being constructed in 3D which allows them the fluid movement and wide range of character design and equipment options youd expect from an RPG. Weve done a number of tests and the 2D/3D mix feels very natural.
Were really excited about the direction were heading in and the progress weve made in the last 3 months. We look forward to showing you more soon!
