The Last Week, New Screenshots & Units
The last week of the Kickstarter campaign
The last week of our campaign has started and we still have some troubles to get our news on the big sites. There are some that seem to just not care about a small project like "Battle Worlds: Kronos". We decided not to care about them anymore and not waste our time on them.
Instead we’ll rely on the best thing in this campaign: You.
Here are two things we’d like everybody who cares for this project to do:
- Go to the main site and hit the Facebook “Like” Button. At the moment we have more than 6.000 backers but only 2.500 “Likes”.
- Everybody of you is probably active in a community, a forum, on other Kickstarter campaigns or the like. Please go there now, tell them about our project and that there are only a few days left. If you’ve already posted something in the past: Please revisit the thread and bring it back to the top (for example by linking the latest campaign updates).
This can really make a difference! A while ago one of you contacted Brian Fargo and Obsidian, they gave us a shout-out and it resulted in a lot of new backers! So please think about who you know and who you might inform about Battle Worlds: Kronos. Let’s do this!
Snow & Ice
Battle Worlds: Kronos will feature three different climates: Moderate climate & desert (both of which you’ve already seen in the videos) and a cold climate featuring snow & ice.
In the last three weeks we have worked on the cold climate graphics. What do you think?
The ice doesn’t just look nice, it’s also an important factor of the gameplay: Rivers might freeze over and allow land-units to cross the water. But be aware: When a unit explodes on the ice it leaves a hole behind…
Work-in-progress: New units
Here are some of the units we’re working on at the moment. For each unit we try to find a unique shape so all units can be distinguished easily.Then we add details to the units (that's the status of the units in the picture above). After that we add textures.
This is a close-up of the w.i.p. "Explorer" unit. It’s a reconnaissance unit – extremely fast (the fastest ground vehicle in the game) but only lightly armored and not very strong in combat.
