Shadowrun is a pen-and-paper RPG setting set in a future and is pretty fuckin neat because it mixes cyberpunk future with high fantasy elves/magic/beasts and stuff like that. It has seen RPG video games on SNES and Genesis, and some shooter on the 360 that everyone forgot about. The setting involves the world being all but ruled by a small group of mega-corporations, hackers ("deckers") jacking their mind into a worldwide "matrix" network, an awakening of magic and elves/trolls/dwarves, people trading information and secrets etc. As a Shadowrunner, you do odd less-than-legal jobs for anonymous bosses.
Last year, one of the original guys that worked on it licensed the IP back from Microsoft and opened a kickstarter to make a new top-down RPG. It's set to release July 25th, 2013.

The combat reminds me of the older Fallout games, they've also said they were a bit inspired by XCOM.
They're going to release a level editor with the game, it looks like it's going to be really in-depth and give you just about all the tools that the devs use (for triggers, etc) and they're encouraging people to write their own campaigns.
I really really liked the Genesis game when I was younger, and this game is shaping up to look really really nice. I backed the shit out of this kickstarter and I'm happy that I did.
Update: release date locked for July 25th
also, they made a better introduction page if you'd like to see the official what-is-this page on the game.
Update: Game is out! People are playing and liking it and making their own modules.
