Harebrained Schemes is a small team of passionate game developers led by Jordan Weisman, the creator of Shadowrun, Crimson Skies, BattleTech, MechWarrior, and many other acclaimed properties. Founded in 2011, the Seattle-based studio is centered on deep collaboration between seasoned veterans and fresh talent. Their first title, Crimson: Steam Pirates, was one of Apple’s Benchmark Games of 2011 and one of Metacritic.com’s "Best iPhone Games of 2011." Their next title, Strikefleet Omega, was named one of Google Play’s "Best Games of 2012." In April 2012, Harebrained Schemes made headlines when it launched one of the first 7-figure Kickstarter campaigns for Shadowrun Returns, which launched in July 2013 to much acclaim and was on five “Most Anticipated Games of 2013” lists. Their latest Kickstarter success story, a digitally-enhanced miniatures board game called Golem Aracana, is due out next year.
