Shadowrun Returns Update Adds More Language Support
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Harebrained Schemes has released version 1.1 of Shadowrun Returns. The update includes bug fixes, more game editor options, and the important addition of French, Italian, and Spanish language options. The role playing game returns players to the Shadowrun universe which features a mixture of cyberpunk tech and high fantasy magic.

From the review:

Since our last update we’ve fixed lots of bugs but the most notable addition in Version 1.1.1 is that French, Italian and Spanish language options are now available. We are (anxiously) awaiting the German and Russian files back from the company doing those translations for us so that we can finish our localization work and make it available to German and Russian speakers.

Version 1.1.1 also contains more of the new Editor features we’ve been using to create Shadowrun: Dragonfall so you can use them too. These include a revamped Thermometer to display more detailed scene performance metrics, a Get Count of Alive Actors data function trigger and a new Display Popup with image and caption. There are quite a few more as well.

Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe Available At MGS
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe from Agharta Studio is available now for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. Inspired by the classic Mac OS Shufflepuck Café the game takes place inside a casino on a desert planet where everyone plays air hockey for a living. To earn the parts needed to repair their damaged spaceship players will need to conquer the game's many levels and opponents.

After "accidentally" jumping your spaceship through a wormhole, you’ve crash landed onto this forsaken desert planet a billion kilometers from home. The only thing between you and the horizon is the seemingly endless dunes of sand, save for one strange, huge building. Inside, it appears to be an interstellar Casino where everyone plays air hockey for a living.

You’ll have to fight hard to grind down all your opponents until they are utterly defeated to earn the critical parts needed to repair your ship. Once you’ve obtained all the spaceship pieces you’ll have to defeat the owner of this insane Casino so you can go home.
