King Arts Games’ alternative post-WW1 RTS is already at $523,538 and rising.
King Art Games attracted quite a bit of attention last year with Iron Harvest, a real-time strategy game with cover elements and destructible environments set in an alternative post-World War 1 universe. The game recently launched its Kickstarter, seeking $450,000 in funding and it seems backers were quite taken with the premise. Iron Harvest has already crossed its crowdfunding goal and stands at $523,538 with 29 days remaining.
That’s a pretty stellar amount especially with so much time left. Among the stretch goals included are cinematic cutscenes ($600,000), Challenge Maps (($750,000), multiplayer ($1 million), a co-op campaign ($1.1 million) and a free DLC campaign ($1.5 million). As of right now, the New Game Plus stretch goal has already been fulfilled.
Check out the Kickstarter trailer below for Iron Harvest – it showcases the emphasis on cover-based combat, how giant steampunk mechs play into things, the different factions and the general aesthetic. The game is currently in development for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
