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.

While Echelon Software continues work on the playable world premier of our isometric action game, Black Powder \\ Red Earth, the creative team has developed multiple assets including a soundtrack by Japanese composer and guitar player Takafumi Matsubara. As of today, those tracks are now available for free listening or purchase on Band Camp.

Takafumi has been the lead guitar for multiple extreme metal bands including: Mortalized, Hayaino Daisuki and GridLink who's track "Orphan" was featured on the Showtime series Homeland during a enhanced interrogation scene.

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!
