Funded! This project was successfully funded on April 28, 2013.

Update #3

We did it! New Trailer! Paypal!

You did it! We reached our funding goal!

A little over 7 days and 2 hours after we embarked on this campaign, you made this dream of our long-lost pet project a reality.

Wo-hoo!!!

Teaser Trailer online!

We have been busy working on the first cinematic teaser trailer. We wanted to do something special with it, so expect something more unusual than your ordinary teaser trailer. Please follow the link below to step into the war about Kronos.

Paypal

Also, if you or someone you know hasn’t backed the project yet because of Kickstarter’s restrictions on payment methods, there is good news: at www.battle-worlds.com, you can now back the project via PayPal! Just click on the paypal links on the right side of the page to get access to all the reward tiers. Of course, all PayPal contributions will count towards the stretch goals.

Coming up...

In the next coming days, we will have even more updates for you, some in video form, some in text form, where we will elaborate on frequently asked questions, but moreover on the mechanics of the game. So keep your eyes peeled to your inbox for further stuff from us!

Again, thank you for making this project a reality and trusting us with your contributions. We are working hard to create the best TBS game we possibly can, and we will continue to do it with your help.

Now is not the time for rest: there are three ambitious stretch goals still to come. We are still reaching out to communities and press and we hope that you will continue to do so as well.

      Hooray!
      I'm confident you can easily triple the initial goal before the campaign ends.
      Looking forward to further updates and the game of course :)

      I pleged via paypal, but it seems there is no backer account site or anything like that?
      Will something like that be set up to easily see your pledge and keeping track of it?

      Suggestion re: the two additional languages added in the $250k stretch goals - I'd suggest Mandarin Chinese and Korean. China / Korea are massive when it comes to strategy game play, with Starcraft having really long legs there.
