Jagged Alliance: Flashback, a "reset" of the classic strategy franchise from Full Control Games, has managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat on Kickstarter. They managed to push over their $350,000 target within the last few hours of the campaign, meaning that development can start in earnest as soon as Space Hulk releases on iOS.
Set in the late-1980’s on the fictional Caribbean Island of San Christobal, Jagged Alliance: Flashback transports players back in time to the cold war era. The island will hold many hidden secrets, humorous stories and hostile environments, which "makes a perfect setting for a fun and challenging game with lots of twists and turns."
The pitch promises "thrilling action and character RPG elements," which will be familiar to series fans. Kickstarter backers will have access to early builds and the developer's ear, thus allowing them to help shape the finished product.
Jagged Alliance: Flashback managed to secure $368,314 of their $350,000 goal, not including direct PayPal pledges, and have left the door open for extra donations to contribute towards stretch goals. More details on the official site.
