This morning I got an email from a forum I haven't looked at in years, GhostRecon.net.
It was a call to help with a Kickstarter Project to help fund a new game from one of the original Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six devs that is going to be called Ground Branch.
Here's the E-mail
Reading through the description it looks pretty awesome, like what us tactical guys have been waiting for.Bamboo,
Hi Ghost Recon Fan
I'm taking this unusual step of e-mailing everybody that opted in for Admin e-mails to make you aware of an exciting development from one of the original Ghost Recon developers, John Sonedecker of Blackfoot Studios.
John is planning a brand new tactical shooter more like Ghost Recon than any other game released in the last decade. To pledge your support and help this project get off the ground please visit the following links, and support the growth of a true tactical shooter game, just like Ghost Recon in 2001!
John and his team already have the groundwork done on making a true, free roam, tactical shooter, they just need the support so please get behind this project today!
If you are unfamiliar with how Kickstarter works, here it is in a nutshell; you become a Kickstarter by pledging a sum of money , and if the sumtotal of all the pledges exceeds the Kickstarter target, the game gets published and your money is donated (payable through Amazon), and the game ships to you. If the total fails to meet the target, no money changes hands!
Thanks, and good gaming.
So for those of you who haven't looked at Kickstarter before, how it works is if you donate to a certain amount (shown on the right of the page) you get that level of reward. If the amount of funding needed is met ($425,000), then your credit card will be charged. If it isn't' met, like they only get $300,000 of support, then your card isn't charged. The lowest level is $25, so you could get the game for as cheap as $25.
What do you guys think? How many of you played the original Ghost Recon? Should I try to get this posted up to the front page of TG so more people will see it?
