Black Powder | Red Earth™ is creating a new modern warfare gaming and animated series.

_Echelon has begun development of a Black Powder Red Earth animated mini-series. Conceived of as a 3 episode animated piece, series creator Jon Chang has been researching + developing the scenario since August 2017 with SME’s from US Army Special Operations. As with all BPRE projects, series creators work to insure the missions, tactics and equipment are all kept authentic and that the opponents tactics are accurately reflected.  As of now, producer/director Atsuji Kaneko is set to be a vital part of the team. We are trying to find only people passionate about the project so we can create something very uniquely BPRE. 

As pre-production moves into production, we will be offering extremely limited hard copy exclusive art books, storyboard books and hypernotes to backers that will not be available anywhere else. Maybe some patches too ^_-

The long teased turn based desktop computer game is now in alpha. We are planning to give early access and eventually keys to the game!

While software continues work on the video game, the design team have started work on a co-operative PVE board game focused on the application of small unit tactics in asymmetric urban warfare. With a campaign and rule system built from the ground up as an analog for small units working in non-permissive urban settings, the game is laser focused on creating opportunities for meaningful decisions employing cutting-edge weapons, set in real-world locations with real-world challenges as seen in the Black Powder Red Earth graphic novels and mini-series. Spectre will be developing the miniature component of the game as well as advising on creating a frictionless and natural game flow.

Finally, we are working to create a miniature set for the Spectre Operations table top game!

By supporting us here, you will be supporting all of these projects and we will be giving everyone early access and special limited product offers(like our MC Black Velocity Systems Scarab Plate Carriers or our Cold Harbor branded Arc'teryx Covert Jackets) for as long as you'll have us ^_^
