Developer Harebrained Schemes has uploaded almost 20 minutes of footage from an alpha build of the game, showing studio co-founders Jordan Weisman and Mitch Gitelman creating a character and getting into fights.

The video also details the game's dialog system, cover mechanics, and both solo and party combat.

Shadowrun Returns is one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns, setting a target goal of $400,000 but raising over $1.89M in total. The game was originally due to be released in January but was delayed because of the studio's desire to implement a more ambitious set of features made possible thanks to the game's impressive budget.

The game is now due to be released this summer for the PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.
