Ships Ahoy - Jagged Alliance - Back in Action

Steam now offers Jagged Alliance - Back in Action, the Jagged Alliance 2 remake. Here's an overview of the game:

Designed from the ground up to offer a modern gaming experience, Back in Action showcases an updated isometric 3D look and interface, highly detailed character models and a variety of new gameplay features. Back in Action takes players to the fictitious country of Arulco, where a ruthless dictator has seized power and only a small group of rebels stand to resist him. Tasked with freeing the island from the dictator’s iron grip, players will command rebel and mercenary forces while using tactical, diplomatic and economic tools to keep troops supplied and ready for the next flight, all while commanding them directly in nail-biting battles.

Back in Action’s innovative “plan & go” combat system combines real-time strategy (RTS) with turn-based elements to guarantee that the intricacies of tactical warfare are rendered in dynamic, exciting gameplay. This challenges would-be commanders to master not only strategy and tactical combat, but also to maximize their team’s capabilities through RPG-like character advancement.

Why would anyone want to play this when JA2 and the 1.13 mod are still eminently playable.

And people wonder why developers don't make more games like this, when people refuse to even try new games in favor of playing 10 year old games.

The reason I'm playing it is because I bought it and I tend to like playing games I bought. The reason I bought it is because I actually like developers to make games in this particular genre, instead of just giving up on the whole subsection of games people won't buy anything new when "JA2 is still eminently playable".

Incidentally, people are already making rudimentary mod tools. The first of which allows you to modify the stats of mercs, so you can create one to your liking out of the lower tier mercs. Not as nice as having an in-game system to create a balanced custom merc, and you'll have to make do with that particular merc's picture and voice for now, but it's a start and a way to get one with a unique set of stats and perks that you like.
