Hardcore Tactical Shooter
is another Kickstarter project that promises to offer a new hardcore tactical shooter to fans of games like Rainbow Six. It sounds interesting, but perhaps the best part is that those who contribute $10,000 or more will receive a custom Beretta 92FS 9mm with laser-engraved aluminum grips with the logo of the game on them! For those who find that price too high, perhaps the $5,000 reward of going on a "shooting trip with dev team members for an afternoon, shooting a range of different guns, including full-auto fun" would be more to their liking. I'm willing to bet not many Kickstarter projects offer these kinds of rewards!
For years, fans of tactical shooters have been crying out for someone to make a quality, hardcore, CQB tactical shooter, the spiritual successors to the original Rainbow Six and the SWAT series of games. But in contrast to these requests, game publishers eschew realism and tactics in exchange for ease of use and “cinematic” flavor. This campaign aims to see if my theory that real tactical shooters aren’t dead, and that enough people want one to justify the cost of development.
We have assembled a small team, all with years of video game industry experience and a specialty in shooters. We are focusing our initial development on a hardcore CQB tactical shooter.
This game will get back to the core of what is loved about the tac-shooter, featuring realistic weapon modeling, outfitting and commanding your squad, objective-based, non-linear missions set in real-world locations around the world, single player, co-op, and multiplayer.
As for a Mac version:
Will there be a Mac version? How about Linux?
Mac and Linux are TBD based on demand. If you are interested, let us know!
