'Jagged Alliance: Flashback' Kickstarter Campaign Successful

by Rainier on May 24, 2013 @ 1:53 a.m. PDT

Based on the popular Jagged Alliance series, Jagged Alliance: Flashback is not just a reboot, but a reset that returns the franchise to the tactical turn-based action of the original games.

Set in the mid-1980s on the Caribbean Island of San Christobal, Jagged Alliance: Flashback transports players back in time to the cold war era. They are to experience the events surrounding the foundation of A.I.M. the international mercenary organization. A destabilizing coup d’état establishes a powerful socialist regime. A hard-line fanatic U.S.S.R. General seizes the opportunity to establish a military base right under the nose of the U.S. Under the secret orders of the CIA, players must re-stabilize the balance of power in the region, restore the democratic government of San Christobal and drive out the U.S.S.R. presence by any means necessary.

Gameplay features will emphasize the core pillars that made the original games great: deep strategy, thrilling action and character RPG elements.

“Wow, what a campaign! we’ve been blown away by the community’s feedback and faith in the Full Control team with what is a sacred, beloved franchise to many,” said Thomas Lund, CEO of Full Control, “We are now looking forward to turning this concept into reality and beginning pre-production - as well as engaging with the community and asking for their ideas and feedback to shape the Jagged Alliance: Flashback”.

With funding reaching $380,000 the campaign met its first stretch goal of $375,000, and will now include the Mountains, Mines and Pits themed zone.

If you've arrived late and still want to pledge, you can still do so by heading over to PayPal pledge section on our site. We'll keep most of the current pledge options available for some time and later move on to slacker backer deals. See more on that on our site, once it gets an overhaul the next few days. Further pledges will still count towards the stretch goals.
