Developer Serellan’s hardcore tactical shooter project, working title Takedown, is in its final hours on Kickstarter, one of the world’s largest funding platforms. Their goal: $200,000 by Sunday, April 1st. Sitting at 18 hours left at the time of writing, they currently have $155,440 pledged towards the project.
The idea is fairly simple: To create a hardcore tactical shooter reminiscent of old school Rainbow Six games that focus on slower-paced, tactical and realistic gameplay, something seemingly missing in today’s trend of shooters. Serellan hopes to fill this gap with their studio made up of talented members from development teams like Red Storm, Monolith, Microsoft, Ubisoft and Bungie.
In their latest update, Serellan wrote, “At this point, things are coming in tight. If we continue at our current rate, we will be JUST short of our goal. BUT, if everyone that has pledged increased their pledge by $15, or got another person to pledge $15, we WILL make it.”
