Cliffhanger Productions has unveiled some new information of ShadowrunCliffhanger Productions has announced that the Kickstarter campaign for Shadowrun is reaching its final week, and has released an all-out information offensive.
The world view layers allow players to uniquely perceive the games environment, NPCs and enemies as they receive different information from the games interface based on their characters skills and abilities. This new form of contextual gameplay allows players to interact differently with their individual world layers. A Hacker may be interacting with access nodes, security devices and hostile drones in Augmented Reality, while a Street Samurai can perceive weaknesses in the enemys armor or see the cover benefits granted by objects in the world. Mages can sense the life essence and magical abilities of enemies and objects through walls and even see augmentations on living beings as essence dead zones.
By combining these world views members of a team can support each others tactical decisions while players can experience the world and its challenges from very different perspectives a game concept our team is quite excited about says Jan Wagner, Co-Founder of Cliffhanger Productions.
