Does anybody remember Shadowrun?

Not the pen-and-paper RPG, but the excellent SNES game of 1993:

It’s back! And all of the elements that made the SNES original so great: the immersive (now retro) environments, the (William) Gibson-meets-Tolkien storyline, the bad 80s-esque fashion! I’m excited, I must say. I was fascinated by this game when I first played it, though I sucked – my pre-teen mind couldn’t handle the inherent difficulty and perseverence required to progress – but I still loved it.

Keep an eye out if you’re interested: Shadowrun Returns should be out sometime in the next few months, definetely some time this year. Here’s a link to the developer’s website for the nosy-types:
