Black Powder \\ Red Earth is a 2D isometric tactical action game where players control 2 man cell teams conducting night raids into sprawling non-permissive environments. Inspired by John Hill's classic board game Squad Leader and Bullfrog's Syndicate; the game is class driven, offering a diversity of tactics and strategy without sacrificing run-and-gun shoot outs. It's a game where stealth is a means to approach and assess a target, the player is not punished for killing enemies and collateral damage is accepted as a necessary evil. In short, BPRE is a canvas, with an objective. Not a corridor crawler with pop up targets spawning grenades at your feet to keep you moving along or a stealth game where killing enemies earns you admonishment and empty moral standards.
