FINAL CALL TO ARMS!

Full Control Needs $81,000 to Successfully Crowdfund the

Godfather of Turn-Based Action

May 21st, 2013, Copenhagen, Denmark - With 60 hours to go Danish independent studio Full Control are in the homestretch of the Jagged Alliance: Flashback

Kickstarter campaign, that will reset the franchise to the core tactical turn-based action of the original games. Full Control have currently raised over $269,000 toward their $350,000 target and have 60 hours to raise the remaining funds to insure that Jagged Alliance: Flashback becomes a reality.

“We have been blown away by the support of both the Jagged Allianc e community and modders since we started the Kickstarter campaign,” said Thomas Lund, CEO of Full Control, “We have 60 hours left to raise the remaining funds so we can turn what has been a concept into a full fledged release that will stand up to the classic turn based-action of the originals”.

Full Control have also released a developer video commentary on the downloadable diorama gameplay scene that was released last week, depicting a combat scenario set in the jungle and ancient ruins of the fictional Caribbean Island of San Christobal. The gameplay scene shows the community the look and style of Full Control’s planned reset for the cult turn-based franchise.

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.

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. 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.
