A fundraiser was launched on Kickstarter, collecting money for Squad – a tactical FPS in a modern warfare setting, developed by Offworld Industries. Although the campaign has only just begun, we can already see that the developers will most likely succeed: already within the first day they managed to collect CAD 60,000, which amounts to nearly one-third of the planned 184,000.
he project started by Will "Merlin" Stahl in late 2013 was inspired by a popular modification for Battlefield 2 called "Project Reality", while most of the 22-people team of Offworld Industries were involved in its creation. According to the developers, the main goal of Squad is to depict the modern battlefield in a realistic manner and focus on team action: fast reflexes will be less important than communication with partners and carrying out the tasks assigned to a given class. In addition, the developers want to create a challenging production, in which each hit will have consequences, e.g. a shot in the leg will prevent us from running. To deliver the most realistic vision of war, the team used an engine that calculates the trajectory of a bullet depending on the weapon from which it was fired. Squad will also allow us to not only destroy, but also build bases according to our own preferences, as well as participate in clashes that will involve up to as many as a hundred players.
