The team has currently raised over $227,195 to successfully reset the franchise, and with a funding goal of $350,000.00, have six days to raise the remaining funds.

“The Jagged Alliance series have always been played out on temperate pacific islands - looking back at Back in Action and Jagged Alliance 2 from an artistic point of view - trife brown colors dominated the landscape,” said Jesper Andersen, Concept Artist at Full Control. “We  have been influenced by games such as Dishonored that oozed dirty, dark and filthy visuals without succombing to photo realistic textures. With Flashback we want to combine a realistic approach with strong colours to stand out from the masses.”
