Shadowrun Returns Concept Art


Harebrained Schemes has released a piece of concept art that depicts how Shadowrun Returns will look. Click here for a full-sized version.

Quote:
While this is concept art not a screenshot its representative of the fidelity and art style were shooting for. For the uninitiated (or those seeking a quick refresher!) the concept above depicts the infamous Redmond Barrens* of the mid 2050s.

The game environment will be composed of painted 2D elements, so we should be able to deliver the level of detail, depth and expressiveness that you see here. Characters in Shadowrun Returns, on the other hand, are being constructed in 3D which allows them the fluid movement and wide range of character design and equipment options youd expect from an RPG. Weve done a number of tests and the 2D/3D mix feels very natural.

Were really excited about the direction were heading in and the progress weve made in the last 3 months. We look forward to showing you more soon!

So much for it being a console title with a screenshot concept like that.

I thought the game was supposed to emulate the earlier games which while old, the characters looked more realistic, I like the buildings, but the characters look way to cartoony. I am also miffed that we don't have cyberspace/matrix in the game since that is the coolest part for me.

Given how fantastical the setting is, a more cartoony look isn't necessarily a bad thing; you do, after all, have orcs and trolls running around with swords, shotguns and cybernetic limbs while fighting dragon crime lords.

The setting doesn't exactly scream "realistic".

Well.... it could be worse. Personally I'm not digging the direction they took, but the art looks like a decent piece of canon.
