Museums like to use the phrase "frozen in time" to describe dinosaur bones and stuffed dead things, but in the case of Jagged Alliance: Flashback, the term's not a euphemism from "dead." Far from it! The gang behind the still-running Kickstarter have released what they call a "gameplay scene"—imagine you've hit a pause button mid-battle, enabling you to explore the scene without fear of getting pulverized. And if movement's not your thing, there are some handy screenshots available as well.

Jagged Alliance: Flashback seeks to kickstart a revival of the turn-based strategy classic

The team behind the upcoming Warhammer 40K: Space Hulk game adaptation has announced another hammer and sickle they have in the fire. Namely, they're looking to bring back an old school turn-based strategy franchise with Jagged Alliance: Flashback. The pitch proclaims "it's not a reboot, it's a reset!" We're not entirely sure what the distinction is between the two, but we're also not opposed to a new single-player experience for a well-regarded PC game series that hasn't seen one in a while.
