About Drakeling Labs

Operation: Harsh Doorstop is a free, community developed, realistic tactical shooter developed by Drakeling Labs. Planned features include large scale engagements, combined arms warfare, and full support for community modifications.

  
Operation: Harsh Doorstop has no price-tag and no micro-transactions of any kind. Our objective is to create a free tactical shooter that meets or exceeds the production value of paid current-gen tactical shooters.

  
Operation: Harsh Doorstop development contributors include industry-veterans and team-alumni from other esteemed titles including Project Reality, Squad, Insurgency: Sandstorm, Red Orchestra 2, Rising Storm 2, and the regrettably cancelled Project Reality 2 project.

  
Development of Operation: Harsh Doorstop is funded by funds raised through this Patreon, as well as industry sponsors (such as MicroProse Software, Inc.) and the sale of other Drakeling Labs games (such as Iron Armada and Warfare 1944.)

  
Developers from all backgrounds and levels of experience have come together to support our vision for this project. With your help we can continue building Operation: Harsh Doorstop into a free, community-first, current-generation tactical shooter that raises the bar for shooters everywhere.

Goals
187 of 1,000 patrons
A force to be reckoned with. If we are able to amass one thousand supporters, we will have a budget that can compete with most 30$ indie shooters released on Steam.
