Fix Games has announced the return of their shooter, Tactical Intervention, in a new Kickstarter campaign for Tactical Intervention: Reloaded.
Last month we heard the news that Fix Games were shutting down Tactical Intervention, Minh Le’s spiritual successor to Counter-Strike, following lack of funds to keep the game afloat. Now, the developers are back with a Kickstarter campaign for Tactical Intervention: Reloaded a game which hopes to be the game TI was supposed to be before publishers got involved.
Tactical Intervention launched as a free-to-play game back in 2013 “almost one year ahead of schedule”, according to the campaign description, and it basically wasn’t the game the developers wanted to make. After four years of the developers trying to keep their heads above water, it all became a bit too much.
“There was a long list of technical issues – most notably catastrophic bugs and glitches that caused many crashes, threw players out of the levels or caused them to get stuck,” reads the campaign. “In the end, the game that we were forced to release was an alpha-version with a lot of potential, but little to no polishing and a number of catastrophic flaws.”
Now, Tactical Intervention: Reloaded hopes to fix all of those problems, first with the bugs, and second with the game’s free-to-play model and in-game store. If successfully funded, the game will launch as a premium game with no free-to-play features. Once purchased, everything in-game will be accessible.
Already the developers have made a ton of progress fixing an incredibly long list of bugs and glitches in the game, but now they need players’ help to make Reloaded a reality. Fix Games are currently seeking €10,700, which is a pretty modest amount, considering. They’ve also been incredibly transparent in what they plan to do with the money if successful.
So, if you were a fan of the original Tactical Intervention game, then it might be worth dropping a few Euros on Reloaded. You can read more about the game and pledge, over on the Kickstarter campaign.
