Unborn To Shadowrun

File under What Could Have Been. Robert Olson was Art Director at FASA, and after Crimson Skies started work on... well, Shadowrun. As fond as I am (i.e. Slightly) of the eventual Shadowrun multiplayer FPS, the game which was cancelled before it. The original plan? "They wanted a new Shadowrun, one that was real in the way Peter Jackson made the "Lord of the Rings" universe real. They wanted an IP that would satisfy the hard core Shadowrun fans but appeal to a new and younger audience," explains Olson. There's a few more thoughts on what was presumably called Shadowrun: Awakening - because that's what the URL says - over at the page, plus shots from an early demo. No 'elf packs are visible.
