  • Ground Branch - Old school/Squad based tactical shooter by BlackFoot Studios

    Some of you might have heard of Ground Branch because this game was announced a few years back by BlackFoot Studios. BFS is a gaming studio founded by John Sonedecker, who also worked on the original Rainbow Six, Rogue Spear and Ghost Recon and all expansions during his time at Red Storm Entertainment. Development has been steady but slow up till now, as far as I know mostly because of funding issues (no publishers are interested in niche genre game).

    It's a very promising tactical shooter and yesterday they released an official Ground Branch website and announced that they will do a Kickstarter campaign soon! They also released a Kickstarter Teaser video to give us a glimpse of their current pre-alpha built.

    We are heading into the next phase of Ground Branchís development and ready to go full steam into production. Soon we will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to support that effort and will need all of your support to make sure it is a success. We have all been waiting a long time for this chance, so letís make it happen! To thank you all for your continued support we are releasing a Kickstarter Teaser video below.
    Really, check out their website which has lots of info, features list, Q&A section, screenshots, theme music etc. Well worth the read.

    Watch the Kickstarter Teaser below (PRE-ALPHA footage eh) :)

    Can't seem to find an edit post button (so sorry for "double" posting), but I forgot to post some screenshots as well. Here they are, and there are more available on their website.

      Great news! I thought Ground Branch had died off some time ago, but now they've back in business. If they can get the necessary funding from Kickstarter it's going to be a great time to be an old school tactical realism fan again with this and Project Takedown on the way.

        Kickstarter has been launched: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/.../ground-branch

        Lots of info on the KS page and 11 min video. If you like tactical shooters, you owe it to yourself to at least take 20 minutes and check everything out (and be sure to also read the text eh) :)

          That's going to be a hard sell in an already saturated shooter market. IMO.

            The tactical shooter market is anything but saturated actually! :) Well, there are enough games that call themselves "tactical" or "simulation" while they aren't. This can be compared with the more old school experience like original Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon with some revolutionizing concepts as well for the genre, so also moving things forward, in the right direction that is (as far as I know more about new concepts as the campaign runs its course). It's not just a run of the mill general shooter, which is indeed a saturated market.

                  Kickstarter page has been completely overhauled with better info etc. And they announced that Ground Branch will be on Mac OS as well, right from the start.

                    I tried clicking on "Contact us" to submit news to TG's site admins, but couldn't get through. This project needs a lot more publicity if it's gonna hit its goal by the 7th of July.

                          Maybe it's possible to directly mail them to an e-mail address? Don't have time to check it atm, but would be nice if TG made a front page news item about Ground Branch :)
