One of the original lead designers from the first Jagged Alliance games, and the never-finished Jagged Alliance 3, Chris Camfield, has officially joined the advisory board for Full Control's prequel game, Jagged Alliance: Flashback.
Don't think that all the hard work is done and over with, the team is still ramping up support and they're just past the halfway mark at $150,000 out of $350,000 in total Kickstarter funds.
In addition to getting Camfield on board, the team has also acquired the services of a team of modders to help implement some of the modding features for the upcoming game.
Thomas Hentschel Lund, CEO of Full Control, commented in the press release about the news, saying...
“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”...“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”.
Well, let's hope that this campaign for Jagged Alliance actually gets off the ground right and can secure all its funding. Unlike its popular rival, X-Com, Jagged Alliance hasn't been able to get a proper revival yet, and it's such a shame because it was one of the best (if not the best) turn-based strategy game during the 1990s.
