Jagged Alliance Flashback now available on Steam
Danish independent developer Full Control has just announced the official release of its latest title, Jagged Alliance Flashback. This “reset” of the classic turn-based series is now available on Windows, Mac, and Linux, for $29.99/£24.99/€29.99. “We are excited to bring Jagged Alliance back to its turn based roots with the launch of Flashback”, said Thomas Lund, CEO of Full Control. “It’s been a long journey from the initial Kickstarter funding campaign to full commercial launch. For months we’ve been working very closely with the awesome Jagged Alliance community, whose feedback has helped shape Flashback to the experience it is today”.
Based in the late-1980’s on the fictional Caribbean Island of San Hermanos, the elected president – the ‘Prince’ – uses his powerful military force to halt a rebellious group attempting to overthrow his regime. The revolutionaries quickly find they are powerless against the Prince’s powerful military force. Jagged Alliance Flashback begins when the insurgent army quickly dissolves after the rebel leader is arrested and imprisoned. Players arrive on San Hermanos to get the rebel leader out of prison as events take a turn for the worse. During the course of the rebellion, three charismatic individuals arise from the turmoil to form the legendary mercenary organisation A.I.M.
In Jagged Alliance Flashback, players assemble and coordinate squads of unique and powerful mercenaries to conquer the island sector by sector and turn by turn. The backbone of a deep and complex turn-based combat system is the economy system allowing gamers to manage their resources to improve their mercenaries, buy or repair equipment, and hire new members. Like the original classic Jagged Alliance series, Flashback tasks players to create their own tactics, whether that be rushing in with heavily armed troops to flank the Prince’s forces, or from sniping enemies from a distance.
