'Ground Branch' wants to revive the military shooter

BlackFoot Studios is seeking $425k on Kickstarter by July 6 to fund the game Ground Branch. The studio seeks to launch the first-person shooter for PC and Mac in 2013.

BlackFoot Studios is deeply rooted in the genre, as Founder/Creative Director John Sonedecker is credited in over 20 games in his lengthy career in the industry. He worked on Ghost Recon and the original Rainbow Six game before founding the Ohio company in 2004, according to the game's website.

Details on the depth of character and weapon customization as well as design choices are nearly too dizzying to list, though Sonedecker spelled out the development team's aspirations in the commentary video above.
