GRAW Lead Seeks Kickstarter Funding for Hardcore Tactical Shooter
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter lead designer Christian Allen is trying to raise $200,000 on Kickstarter to fund his resurrection of old-school, hardcore tactical shooters. He has until April 1st to reach his goal and currently has reached $17,968 — 9% of the way there with plenty of time left.
Allen wrote the following on his Kickstarter page:
For years, fans of tactical shooters have been crying out for someone to make a quality, hardcore, close-quarters combat tactical shooter. But in contrast to these requests, game publishers eschew realism and tactics in exchange for ease of use and ‘cinematic’ flavour.
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.”
This game will get back to the core of what is loved about the tac-shooter, featuring realistic weapon modelling, outfitting and commanding your squad, objective-based, non-linear missions set in real-world locations around the world, single player, co-op, and multiplayer.
Kickstarter funders will received various rewards, based on how much they pledged, including the ability to vote on game content, submit content for the game, participate in creative meetings, visit the studio, and more. If you’re willing to pledge $10,000 or more, you get a custom Beretta gun by Christian Allen himself.
