No they only gave January 2015 as a date so sometime next month. So don't worry as I will post it in a new news-bit for eveyone to read when it launches.

The first - and until now the only - tactical RPG that came out of Kickstarter and that got my attention. Specially Dragonfall. Hope they keep up the good work.

Oriental cyberpunk, sounds like an interesting setting.

I didn't back the first on Kickstarter, but picked it up and loved it after it was released. I will be backing this one.

I wonder what they will add to the game to justify asking for more money in a kickstarter…It's obvious they need money for art assets but I would really like to see them increase other areas like functionality and maybe NET stuff…

Maybe a longer game?

I want full control over the entire party not just the main character this time. No more auto-levelling for the other characters.

That seems very doable…..if they aren't designing the game from the basement up they should have some extra time to implement stuff.

Well, they have earned my trust. I don't back many games on kickstarter anymore, but I will back this.

It is good that they are using the setting from many of the classic cyberpunk novels.

Great announcement. Hong Kong's quality however will probably suffer, be worse or bad, because they shouldn't have sapped their strength with ugly and completely unnecessary Necropolis. The idiot there - who pitched Necropolis for the team - shouldn't have been hired or I would fire him/her immediately. Only misery will come out of Necropolis, you will see.

Well it's just mercy sharing his expert wisdom on how another game is doomed to fail before its even finished. Its a side project of Harebrained Schemes.

I really hope they take this seriously and make a game of at least Dragonfall DC quality. They raised the bar very high with that game.

The last game wasn't too bad… So, I'm willing to throw some more cash at the wall and hope something sticks.
