Feast your eyes on 20 minutes of Alpha gameplay footage from the Kickstarter-funded Shadowrun Returns. It’s looking pretty damn sweet, bringing back that classic 2D turn-based RPG style we’ve not seen proper since Fallout 2.

For the uninitiated, Shadowrun is a pen-and-paper RPG setting that mashes a dystopian cyberpunk future with high-fantasy, so you’ve got Orcs alongside Hackers, Elves next to pimped-out Cyborgs. It’s all pretty funky, and in today’s gaming world of brown on brown and 30-something half-tuck heroes, a welcome return.
