Hardcore Tactical Shooter Kickstart

A new Crowdsourced Hardcore Tactical Shooter Kickstarter Page looks to generate funding for a hardcore, close quarters battle first-person shooter for Windows PCs from Serellan LLC. This is the brainchild of Christian Allen, who has been a design lead on Ghost Recon and Halo titles before going indie. There's an interview on Ghostrecon.net talking with Christian about the project, and here's a bit on his approach:

For years, fans of tactical shooters have been crying out for someone to make a quality, hardcore, tactical shooter. But in contrast to these requests, game publishers eschew realism and tactics in exchange for ease of use and “cinematic” flavor. This campaign aims to see if my theory that real tactical shooters aren’t dead, and that enough people want one to justify the cost of development.

I’ve been in the video game industry working on best in class shooters for ten years now – designing and leading teams creating Tom Clancy games and Halo Reach. Now I’ve struck out and formed a new company for indie game development, Serellan LLC.

This guy doesn't exactly have the resume to instill confidence. He only worked on one real tactical shooter, which was an expansion pack. Also, I'm not sure how well shooters will work based on crowdsourcing alone. Shooters require higher production values than other genres and even $1 million (which he isn't very likely to get) isn't enough.

From his interview on Ghostrecon.net...

Before games, my background was in the military. I served four years as an Active Duty MP in the US Marines, and then another 5 ½ in the Air and Army National Guard.

I started my games career modding Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear in ‘99, and after a few years joined Red Storm Entertainment.

I also do consulting for game companies and Hollywood on games and firearms.

...I'd say it's better than most.
