Takedown: Red Sabre Review

October 1st - via:
Over the past generation of games (that is, games that have been released in the past 6-7 years) we've seen perhaps some of the biggest changes and advancements within the industry. Whether we're talking the growth of digital distribution, the advent of Kickstarter, or the rise of independent developers; the game industry is a much broader and more accessible vertical to release a product on. Takedown: Red Sabre is a game that clearly straddles these new lines. It's a game that most likely would never have seen the light of day in any different scenario, but in today's market it's a perfectly viable game for a very specific group of gamers.

Takedown: Red Sabre bringing tactical shooting back to Steam and XBLA

June 22nd - via:
Indie developer Serellan billed its first-person shooter Takedown: Red Sabre as a "spiritual successor to the original Rainbow Six and SWAT 4" when the developer successfully raised $221,833 on Kickstarter in April 2012. Squad-based tactical shooters, where real-life military tactics take priority over the run-and-gun trappings of triple-A shooters, are arguably harder to come by and have become a niche in the broad FPS genre. (Read More)
