We want to weave a broad tapestry of the diverse issue of war. These include PTSD and lack of treatment, reintegration of soldiers into everyday life, the interactions between soldiers and civilians, sexual assault in the military, the indoctrination of children into the Taliban, the difficulties of being part of the U.S. Military’s chain of command, and many more. As we continue to research and hear peoples' stories, the stories we tell in TSAR will grow and expand.

The main vignettes we plan to focus on right now follow three characters experiencing the war in very different ways.

I don't do the Kickstarter thing, but the premise here is absolutely phenomenal. I really love the stylized look as well. Supporting this in spirit.

I just learned about this a couple days ago, and I absolutely want this to come out. Guess I'm finally going to have to figure out how kickstarter works.

I'm one of the devs working on this. Thanks for starting the thread, Killswitch sent me a message about it. I'd love to answer any questions you all have about the game.
