Catalyst Game Labs Teaming Up With Harebrained Schemes & Cliffhanger Productions

Catalyst Game Labs is excited to be teaming up with Harebrained Schemes and Cliffhanger Productions to launch a “Shadowrun Universe” website.

“Watching the Kickstarter for Shadowrun literally explode has been fantastic,” said Randall Bills, Managing Developer for Catalyst Game Labs. “A desire to see Shadowrun in different mediums beyond the table-top RPG is something we’ve always had and to see the community respond is a testament to how vibrant and cool Shadowrun is, even after all of these years. In a similar vein to what we’ve done with as a portal to all aspects of BattleTech game play from computer games to fiction to the boardgame, we’re teaming up with our friends at harebrained Schemes and Cliffhanger Productions (who are developing Shadowrun Online), to launch a new, all-inclusive website.”

Shadowrun Universe will be a one-stop locale for any Shadowrun fan.

  • One place where fans of every aspect of Shadowrun (remember the collectible card game?) come together to learn, to express themselves, and to have fun.
  • One place where everyone we can share a love of Shadowrun: forums, fiction, art, videos, news . . . everything.
  • One place where we can check in with you.

Check out the latest update for the Shadowrun Returns Kickstarter, and stay tuned for more information surrounding the launch of this great website.
