WE MADE IT and Skin Pack Goodies

Dear Backers, 

You guys truly are awesome :D WE MADE IT without having to rob a bank or Thomas making a last minute dash for Gold. We're so grateful and we just can't wait to get started on this incredible game. 

We had a lot of fun doing the Reddit and live "countdown" for the initial goal and we hope you enjoyed it too. We'll be doing updates during the development phase...dev videos and possible also live Q&A sessions (we felt really relaxed in that setup)

As mentioned before, we'll setup a Slacker Backer initiative on our minisite, (www.jaggedallianceflashback.com) which will run for at least 2-3 months, so both new and current backer will have a chance to make a push for additional Stretch Goals. And yes, we know, the page definitely needs some more love. But we just couldn't give it over the last weeks. But we will in the very near future. But yes, the most important thing is: Stretch Goals can still be reached.

New Female Skin Pack

Yeah, you asked for it and Jesper got busy :D

The new skins are added to the following Tiers:

$35 Tier+ Jovovich Pack, $50 Tier+ Tomb Diver Pack, $75 Tier+ Sniper Fox Pack

The names and illustrations used are not official and are just there to give you an impression of what the pack in broad terms will contain.

Right now it's time to celebrate! it's been quite the ride of our lives and as someone said during the live broadcast somewhat of a thriller - and not the Michael Jackson kind of thriller :) 

We'll make another update tomorrow!!

Until next time dear backers!

The Full Control JAF Team ^^

(which is happy to have such dedicated fans out there)

      Like the skins, any plans for an A-Team skin pack, being set in the 80's and A-Team also in the 80's, would suit it.

    2. Creator Nameless1 on May 24, 2013

      I'd like to thank you guys for the courage to embark on such a difficult journey. I really really really would like to see a worthy sequel to one of my favourite games of all time. Good luck.

    3. Creator Chris K on May 24, 2013

      Could you put a counter with the paypal-pledges on the homepage? It would be interesting to follow that. It might entice people to pledge more to reach the next stretch goals, too.

    4. Creator Frank Kontowicz on May 23, 2013

      I play JA 2 as well still with the 1.13 mod. Awesome game. Here is to hoping this is better.

    5. Creator Rafael Lopes Vivian on May 23, 2013

      This is quite spectacular. And it was just over the minimum requirement for funding too. What a ride!

    6. Creator Clifford Ray Deutschmann on May 23, 2013

      This is very, very good for the Jagged Alliance series.
      I’m looking forward to discussing aspects of the game in a nice new forum, exciting indeed.
      Thanks Full Control!

    7. Creator Full Control on May 23, 2013

      Thanks everyone - and just before going to bed (its 3 am here now - Thomas signing off).

      Current tally on paypal is 11924. So we made the first stretch goal WITH EASE.

      We will be back sometime tomorrow after some sleep - and start sorting things out, and then vacation!

      We will be in touch and YOU GUYS/GIRLS ARE AWESOME

    8. Creator Morgurthion on May 23, 2013

      Awesome to see this project get made, I was doubtfull it would reach it's goal when I backed, with 8 days to go and over 100k to go. I really hope you get to make the game you want, and create something that lives up to the potential JA2 didn't live u to back in its day. Don't get me wrong, I am still playing JA2 today, and have been on and off since it was released. It has all the pieces there, but some of them could have been more fleshed out. Like the conversational systems and roleplaying elements or the basebuilding or the militia system. I hope you have the skill needed to know what to keep, what to expand and what to change. If you do, this can be a tremendous game! A game that I, like it's predecessor, can spend damn near 15 years playing and still get sudden earges to play, only to get stuck playing it for weeks. Also i hope you take alot of inspiration from what the modders did in v1.13 - They had the right idea on how to expand the JA2 experience. (Basically more of everything! :)

    9. Creator Voyevoda on May 23, 2013

      The lady wearing the last suit is called Voyevoda. :P

      I'm very happy about that one! :)

    10. Creator Marcus E Pettersson on May 23, 2013

      Yes! Congrats Full Control and congrats Jagged Alliance fans everywhere!

    11. Creator Wushu on May 23, 2013

      Congrats!!!!! Glad I was wrong in doubting the chance of success, I am very glad to be proved wrong in this case =) Way to go, guys!

      QQ: Will I be able to use Paypal to get add-ons after the fact? Like 20$ for Beta access to my 35$ pledge? And that will count towards stretch goal right?

    12. Creator ImpKeeper Bjørn Rasmussen on May 23, 2013

      question the "" Tomb Diver "" skin ?

      Will that be available later for a payment ?. like on stream where you can buy skins ?

      its the only skin i like so far of the added skins

    13. Creator Mad Squ on May 23, 2013

      I really think that the skin thingy should be explained in a proper manor soon. I would like to know how to get the fem skin, even when I stay on the 25$ tear. Their must be a way. Maybe you folks should see this as a lecture in doing Kickstarter. Their are obviously some issues with communication. And this also might have caused the slow start. Nonetheless, congrats! And I am hoping for an awesome game. Cheers to you!

    14. Creator Doctor X on May 23, 2013

      YA MADE IT!!!! Happy dance! Congrats!!

    15. Creator Faalagorn on May 23, 2013

      Since I'm only a $5 backer here on Kickstarter and I won't be eligible to the game ATM, I have a question about the Slacker Backer - what tiers will be available there? What will I be able to get in there? (digital game, boxed game, digital goodies, boxed goodies, beta access, alpha access, skins, vanity items... and what about the rewards where you co-develop an NPC or get to write a line?)

    16. Creator Duane P. Musiol on May 23, 2013

      Will we still get the female skins if we pledged the $75 for add-ons but kept the $25 tier. The other stuff just didn't interest me. The female skins look cool though.

    17. Creator Hrtz on May 23, 2013

      Cool! I'm really glad you did it!
      ...and nice skins ;)

    18. Creator Chris K on May 23, 2013

      Where is paypal at the moment? Wasn't it like 9K? If so, we already have accieved the first stretch goal. Doesn't look too bad for the second one either, if paypal stays open for a couple more months. :D

    19. Creator Eric on May 23, 2013

      Metal Gear Solid. Sniper Fox was the Russian lady with the green lipstick and far too much exposed cleavage for a sniper crouching in the shadows in Alaska

    20. Creator The Great Goblin - Weresheep lover on May 23, 2013

      Resident Evil, Tomb Raider and ...?

      What is the 3rd a homage to?

    21. Creator CaptN_Nemoïd on May 23, 2013

      Marvelousss !! Let' s Boogie ! I hope that you'll have enought vitamins to Start and Finish the Game after that big Stress session ^_^

    22. Creator Joey D. on May 23, 2013

      Wow, great job! That was a close one...

    23. Creator Full Control on May 23, 2013

      We will find a way so the people will be happy.

    24. Creator TheRealCuran on May 23, 2013

      @Full Control: ok, didn't see this coming as it says "$X Tier+" in the update… and honestly: I'd rather have the TR or Jovovich skins than the one I would get (presumably) with my 250 USD pledge (or am I left out in the cold, since I'm not on 75 USD?). Please, Thomas, give me the other two too!

    25. Creator peshk on May 23, 2013

      @FC thx for considering :-)

    26. Creator DeargDoom on May 23, 2013

      @Full Control
      Thanks, upgraded from 25 to 62 to get my two baby boys in the game (sometimes).

      Hope the one who ends up in the enemy list wont be pissed when he plays it in a few years.

    27. Creator Joshua Lense on May 23, 2013

      I too was a late backer on this one, just backed it last night but I'm glad I did. I saw how close you guys were and stepped up. You managed to convince me that you'll create a game worthy of the JA name, unlike that online trash. Don't disappoint, and remember that the real fans are the old school fans just like you guys. If you guys want to play your own game, chances are we will too.

    28. Creator Full Control on May 23, 2013

      @Pesh
      Fair Question. The Skins are Tier Specific..so yeah you actually won't get the $75 Tier Skins in the $65 level..BUT I'll have a chat with Thomas on this matter as I know it's a bit tricky for people who want the boxed version and the Skins..You'll here more in one of the next updates

    29. Creator Full Control on May 23, 2013

      @Dearg
      Yeah :D

    30. Creator anonymous on May 23, 2013

      Not so skin-of-the-teeth, I'd be surprised if the first stretch goal hasn't been achieved by the time this finishes (including the PayPal contributions).

    31. Creator Merin on May 23, 2013

      Congrats on a skin-of-your-teeth success!

    32. Creator Wolfgang Roehler on May 23, 2013

      Congratulations! I'm already happy to be a part of this upcoming masterpiece!

    33. Creator ddbelyea on May 23, 2013

      Glad to see this get backed. I didn't back until yesterday as I was a bit hesitant of a new JA game. I'm sure I'm not the only one who felt that way after JA:BA and JA:O (online was actually not so bad a game, just bad execution/management... Back in Action probably would have been fine if they just hadn't attached the Jagged Alliance license to it).

      Anyways, you guys convinced me (and apparently over 7000 others) to back this project even with all of the negative feelings surrounding yet another JA title, so you definitely deserve every dollar. I'm sure if the game is everything you promise it to be it will be a huge commercial success outside of Kickstater as well.

    34. Creator Simon Campbell on May 23, 2013

      Stort tillykke!
      Det er første gang jeg har været med i en så spændende Kickstarter.
      Fremtiden ser lovende ud, med spil i bedding som Project Eternity, Torment: Tides of Numenra og nu Jagged Alliance: Flashback. Det måske ikke så mærkeligt at det har været noget sværere for jer. Da det trods at have tillid til folk som Chris Avellone og Brian Fargo end til en relativt ukendt udvikler som jer. På den baggrund er jeres præstation faktisk endnu mere imponerende.
      Under alle omstændigheder ser jeg nu endnu mere frem til 2014.

      Lykke til!

      Mvh Simon

    35. Creator Alex Lein on May 23, 2013

      Totally awesome! I'm so glad this is happening; JA2 is the only game I play at least once a year.

    36. Creator DeargDoom on May 23, 2013

      Anyone know how the names work in tiers 42 and 62? I assume ou get to pick any name you like within reason and that npc and enemy names dont need to match.

      Is this correct or not?

    37. Creator piano on May 23, 2013

      Woooohoooooo! What a day!

    38. Creator S.D. on May 23, 2013

      Awesome! The women's skins look really badass, more realistic. It's a good approach for a JA style game. I hope that skins will either have timed exclusivity, or perhaps be available cheaply for download at some time in the future, preferably directly from your site (though the Steam folks will almost certainly want a Steam way to get them, too). Even if the exclusivity is long, like six months or a year, it would still be a great "thanks" for your more generous backers.
      But, unlocking them eventually has the potential to make the game more enticing to the next generation of girl & women gamers! :-)

    39. Creator peshk on May 23, 2013

      I know I asked it before, and got an answer, but I didn't quite understand the answer and didn't want to bug you then ^^.
      If I am at the $65 tier, but my pledge is around $120 I'll get the skins which are labeled for $75 and higher, right?

    40. Creator Kana on May 23, 2013

      Great!
      I have to admit that I have not been too optimistic for the last two weeks.
      Guess it was a nail-biter for you guys even more, congratulations!

    41. Creator Henrik Kragh on May 23, 2013

      Congratz, looking forward to money well spend :)

    42. Creator Ice Williams on May 23, 2013

      congratulation!

    43. Creator TheRealCuran on May 23, 2013

      @Ray Reloj: just to clear things up: the three female skins should be included for all backers from the respective tiers onwards, which means, if you're at 75 or higher, you should get all three female skins from this update. The (male) skins from update #26 however cost 5 USD/skin on any tier from 15 USD onwards. At least that is, how I read it, maybe Full Control can confirm this.

    44. Creator Stefan S. on May 23, 2013

      Yeah we made it! :) Awesome.

      Just my 2 cents

    45. Creator Ray Reloj on May 23, 2013

      @Curan: I see it now, so on the tier you are on you get the corresponding skin.; did I get it right?

      if so: all is available for $5 at any tier!, huzzah!

    46. Creator Chris K on May 23, 2013

      Congrats on reaching the intial goal and good luck with the stretch goals. I am very happy we made it. Have fun on your vacation. You guys really deserve it. :-)
      As long as the story is ok and you bring back the humor and give the mercs their personality back, I am going to be at least ok with the game. Hopefully you are going to surpass this. I am quite confident you are willing and capable of doing so. I can't wait for the Alpha.

    47. Creator № 22 on May 23, 2013

      Okay, cool. No rush.

    48. Creator TheRealCuran on May 23, 2013

      @№ 22: they said, quite reasonably, that it will take some weeks to sort out (payment processing, data from Kickstarter, setting up the distribution with Humble Bundle and the people responsible for the KS atm, get a few days/weeks off).

      @Ray Reloj: it says "X+ USD", I read it like: if you pledge 75 USD you get all three skins from this update.

    49. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on May 23, 2013

      Skins could be a timed exclusive like in Witcher 2. They patched in all the preorder stuff (skins and such) in one of the first patches, 2 or 3 weeks after release. :)
