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.

After 2 years, the storyline of Black Powder \\ Red Earth continues with a new graphic novel series that serves as a companion to the upcoming BPRE game being developed by Echelon Software.

Picking up 6 months after the events in Black Powder \\ Red Earth Volume 4, Cold Harbor Special Operations Contractors run a new kill-capture program targeting jihadists from the Islamic State and paramilitary officers from the Syrian Republican Guard inside a new Kurdish nation-state. With clients ranging from competing interests within the Kurdish government to Saudi Intelligence and the US Department of Defense, each operation serves multiple masters with their own mission statement and agenda to be carried out.

Available now exclusively through Amazon.com Amzn.com

We're cranking away. We're shooting to have an alpha playable in the next few months for the people who backed our first crowd funding effort. We'll be hopefully working with them to tune alpha 1 and then go loud :) Very much appreciate your interest ^o^

Yeah this looks outstanding, almost like a 16bit version of Jagged Alliance 2, either way I'll be tracking this! Best of luck with the project!
