Shadowrun Returns Review

Shadowrun Returns surprised me. First off, because I completely forgot I had funded the project on Kickstarter. A banner advertising the game on Steam caught me off guard, prompting me to plumb the depths of my Gmail account for a long forgotten activation code. Secondly, because of how good the game is.

He resides on Deponia, a planet covered entirely in garbage. His dream is to escape the dump of a planet and reach Elysium, a far away civilization that is harkened as paradisaical and pristine. The plot of...
