Holte, Denmark - February 20th, 2019 - Game developer Icebreaker Interactive is launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for development of their upcoming PC game Escalation 1985.


What would have happened if the cold war turned hot in 1985? The new first person shooter Escalation 1985 is offering a grand campaign spanning 5 european nations, locations such as Berlin’s Checkpoint Charlie, and the soldiers of 9 armies, including the US Army and the British Army of the Rhine.


The crowdfunding campaign offers players in-game rewards of rare and forgotten weapons.


Backers can also write their own lines for their characters which will be recorded by a professional voice actor or get their own or someone else’s face in the game.


And finally on the highest tier a backer can get their very own real-life BRDM-2 amphibious armored vehicle delivered to their door in the EU or USA. It comes freshly painted in mint-condition from the Czech Republic and is road legal in most places.


It’s fully amphibious and can swim at 10 km/h for 17 hours. You can have a party on a lake with this thing or make the school run very exciting.
