The Kickstarter campaign for Jagged Alliance: Flashback has ended successfully having reached its minimum financial goal. The game’s developer, Full Control, will now begin development of the game.
It is estimated that the final game will be released for PC, Mac and Linux sometime during the later part of 2014.
Combined, funding on both Kickstarter and PayPal exceeded funding past its minimum goal of $350,000 and beyond the stretch goal of $375,000. As a result, developers will add ten mountain sectors and two mines to the game, each with accompanying mining towns.
If enough money is given to help bring the total amount of funds up to at least $425,000, developers will create a map editor and add a small coastal island to the final game. The latter will feature two fishing ports, a tourist resort, easter eggs and unlockable content.
Full Control was very thankful to those who donated to the Kickstarter and in helping reach their minimum financial goal. The Danish development studio wrote a message on the game’s official Kickstarter page to give thanks to their fans.
“We would like to thank all the backers for making Jagged Alliance: Flashback a reality,” the company said. “We couldn’t be happier with all the awesome support we have been getting from the JA community and we are certain that we couldn’t have reached our goal without all your help. It is now our task to deliver, and make a game that is worthy of all the trust, love and hope you’ve put into this project.”
In addition to backers who pledged enough to help develop the game, Full Control hopes that the Jagged Alliance community will continue to provide them with support as they develop the game.
Jagged Alliance: Flashback will be the latest entry in the Jagged Alliance strategy game franchise. It will be a prequel to the first game that was released in 1994 for DOS computers. Full Control has said it will have no connection to the previous game, Jagged Alliance: Back in Action, which attempted to completely reboot the Jagged Alliance universe.
