Christian Allen an accomplished game designer who has worked on some of the best shooters of this generation including Halo Reach and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is reaching out to you, to help his new indie studio Serellan, LLC fund their development effort of a new tactical based shooter.
With the recent overnight Kickstarter success launched by Double Fine for their upcoming adventure title, Christian and his team of industry experienced developing gurus are looking to also get the ball rolling for new shooter.
For years, fans of tactical shooters have been crying out for someone to make a quality, hardcore, CQB 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.
We have assembled a small team, all with years of video game industry experience and a specialty in shooters. We are focusing our initial development on a hardcore CQB tactical shooter.
This game will get back to the core of what is loved about the tac-shooter, featuring realistic weapon modeling, outfitting and commanding your squad, objective-based, non-linear missions set in real-world locations around the world, single player, co-op, and multiplayer.
Obviously, in this day and age, games cost more than a few hundreds of thousands of dollars to make. Engineers don’t work for Cheetos and free beer (although it helps). But it is enough to prove to our investors that the viability of the market, and set up the infrastructure for one of the really cool parts of the project: Crowdsourced development.
