Back In Flashblack: Jagged Alliance Again

Jagged Alliance sits in an uncomfortable middle-ground of nostalgia, where folks remember it warmly enough for companies to keep it alive, but not quite enough to pay for an all-singing, all-dancing, all-not-wonky modern version. In the last few years we've seen a pants Jagged Alliance browser game and a disappointing JA2 remake Back in Action (plus DLC and an expandalone). Perhaps the best recent hope…

Taking AIM: Jagged Alliance – Flashback Interview Pt Two

The first part of my conversation with Full Control CEO Thomas Hentschel Lund covered the main mechanical and interface changes that have been implemented in Jagged Alliance: Flashback. Taking Jagged Alliance 2 as its base, the game's alpha has now been released to backers, giving a first insight into the combat mechanics. In this second part of our extensive interview, I spoke to Lund about…

Taking AIM: Jagged Alliance – Flashback Interview

Jagged Alliance: Flashback's first alpha slice releases to backers tomorrow. It's the first time, to my knowledge, that anyone outside of Full Control will have played the game and CEO Thomas Hentschel Lund is excited and, it's fair to say, a little anxious. Since I last spoke to Lund, the company has released its Space Hulk adaptation and the Jagged Alliance Kickstarter crept over the…

Guns For Hire: Jagged Alliance – Flashback

This is most perplexing. Occurrences in the real world have dragged me away from the internet for a couple of weeks and upon poking my head back inside the landscape of ones and zeroes, I can't help but notice that the Jagged Alliance: Flashback Kickstarter has decided to approach its goal at a thematically appropriate turn-based pace. This could mean that it has conserved action…

Enhance! Jagged Alliance Flashback Diorama

CSI is a show that invents sexy technology to solve crimes (CSI means Cool Solvers International, madeupfact fans). I honestly don't know how any crime gets done with the level of tech they have. Gary Sinese once solved a crime with a spoon and a cornea, which reads like something I'd make up for one of my silly story intros. Honestly, if your plot could…

Jagged Alliance: Flashback Is A Game About Taking Turns

You're sitting there thinking to yourself "But what is Jagged Alliance: Flashback?" It's a fair enough question, and nobody around you seems to have an answer. It's lucky, then, that the people making the game have had the foresight to attempt to explain precisely that in a video. Can they really answer your question? Can they really define the essence of Jagged Alliance: Flashback in…

Chapter & Verse Of Space Hulk

Rummaging my empty head for games I was particularly excited about in 2013, I largely came up worryingly blank. I think, though, that's got a lot to do with the fact that a lot of the most exciting upcomers are happening via Kickstarter, which means 'twould be foolish to presume any of them will actually happen this year. Also because The Mainstream is all bound…

Jagged Alliance: Flashback Now Singing For Its Supper

As prophesied by the saintly words of the Very Reverend Adam Smith last week, Jagged Alliance is about to make its eighty millionth comeback, this time in the charge of Full Control, they of the new Space Hulk game, and via the medium of Crowdsourcing. I can only advise you to read that interview in the pursuit of fulsome details on the turn-based strategy remakequel,…

Squad Chat: Jagged Alliance – Flashback Interview

I've spent most of my adult life waiting for a worthy successor to Jagged Alliance 2 so when Full Control announced that they had secured the rights to the license, I was eager to find out how true the new game would be to the original two. Heading to Kickstarter next week, where it will have a target of $350,000, Jagged Alliance: Flashback is a…
