The era and "that story is one of my favorites," gushes Weisman. Crimson Skies is a 1930's alternate history where air travel is King, and the US collapsed, giving way to air piracy.
It actually launched as a property via a board game in 1998, but was followed by two video game adaptations in 2000 and 2003 by Zipper Interactive. Silence then befell the IP.
Weisman says it "kind of fell into the same void" that his other creation did; MechWarrior. I pesonally remember Crimson Skies as I played online with a friend and used my trusty Microsoft Sidewinder jotstick to blast things out the sky, while hopefully not crashing.
"I’m hopeful that’s another property that I can approach soon," he said. The game designer is "in discussions" with the current owners of the Crimson Skies IP. "I’m hoping that we can bring that back to life as well."
It's beholden to a lot of fond memories for Weisman: “That era and that story is one of my favorites that we came up with and I’d love to be able to go back and tell stories in that world.”
Right now Jordan Weisman is working on Shadowrun Returns, an RPG project funded through. Presently the crowd-funded project has raised almost $900k, having surpassed its goal of $400k. There are 15 days left to go on the Kickstarter campaign. It has over 20,500 backers.
