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.

The Kickstarter campaign gives the fans the opportunity to determine the scope and scale of Jagged Alliance: Flashback, directly influence the shape of the game and participate during its development. With funding currently at $158,000 over the first half of the campaign, pledges beyond the funding goal of $350,000 will kick off new stretch goals to expand the core game by adding content and gameplay features.

Jagged Alliance: Flashback developer Full Control announced that Chris Camfield has joined the advisory board for their project. Chris was responsible for co-designing and implementing the classic Jagged Alliance 2 games, as well as leading design in the unreleased Jagged Alliance 3.

Additionally, Full Control has established an advisory team of community modders to advise and co-design the modding support options for Flashback. Currently this team includes R@S, creator of the Blue Sun Mod for 7.62 - High Calibre and DepressivesBrot from the 1.13-Crew. Full Control is in active talks with additional high profile modders to expand the advisory team even more.

“We are extremely excited to have Chris on board as an advisor. He is able to not only answer how things were implemented, but why”, said Thomas Hentschel Lund, CEO of Full Control, “We are able to get a much deeper understanding of the inner workings of Jagged Alliance 2 in addition to the insights that Chris and the Sir-tech team had during development on Jagged Alliance 3. And now in actively collaborating with established modders we're making sure that Flashback will support modding from day 1 in the best possible way”.
