Dear Backers,

We’re exhausted but happy. The last weeks were truly spectacular. Sure, there is the money and the success and we’re thankful for that. But there is also the feeling of connecting with people. Usually when you do a game you do it for some anonymous creature called "The Player". In the last weeks we talked more to players than probably in the ten years before combined. Some of the browser games we developed have more than 5 million players. But you 7.500 backers feel like much more to us because you talked to us, gave us ideas and helped us.

So we thank you for that. Please stay engaged and supportive! Join our forums at and let your voice be heard.

Games - developed together with a community and funded by the community… this might be our future. We certainly hope so. Maybe the willingness of funding games via Kickstarter will decline. Or maybe there will be too many games on Kickstarter so no one gets enough money. There are plenty of imaginable reasons why our hopes might not come true. But there is one thing, that won’t be the reason: A bad Battle Worlds: Kronos.

We will make a great game.

We owe you that.

Your KING Art Team

Next Steps

  • Amazon Payments will charge your credit cards and we’ll get your contact information from Kickstarter.
  • As soon as we have your contact information we're going to contact you to confirm your shipping adresses and add-on rewards or to sort out any problems (for example missing shipment costs). If you haven’t heard from us until May 15th, please contact us. 
  • After all of that has been sorted out we’ll open the development forum (it will be a sub-forum of the Battle Worlds forum at and take it from there.

If there are any questions or problems, please use the forum. From now on the forum and the web-site will be the main hubs for everything related to Battle Worlds.

There will be more Kickstarter updates as well (maybe once per month), but in order to have all the input in one place please use the forums for your ideas and suggestions.

If you want to always be up-to-date, please join us on Facebook:

      grats. Where and to whome I seay I want steam key?

      @Pham (Alpha): There will be a first Alpha version in about 4 weeks from now. After that we're going to release new Alpha and then Beta versions every 6-8 weeks. End of this year the final game will be released.

    8. Pham on

      I have one question: You said alpha will be available to the appropriate backer tiers a few weeks after the end of the kickstarter campaign, but the campaign is ended now and you also list the estimated delivery date as dec 2013... that's a little more than a few weeks from now. Which is it?

      I like how they are so confident about the game "But there is one thing, that won’t be the reason: A bad Battle Worlds: Kronos. We will make a great game.". That's the spirit!

    10. Nicholas Shephard on

      Congratulations KING Art Games!
      It's so great to see this project successfully funded and to have Battle Worlds Kronos as my first ever game for the OUYA :)

    14. Caliosthro on

      I think it worked this time.
      Can you check it until tomorrow afternoon? (Mo. 30/04/13)
      Holiday then and no possibility to check again.

    15. KING Art Games 4-time creator

      @Caliosthro: I don't know why. Please try to contact Kickstarter tomorrow!

      My payment failed.

      The thing that come to mind first ! Please keep the control layout totally open I have played many video games,mostly console, and they totally lock up the controls limiting the player to just one or two options . Please and thank you

    22. Elfwyn on

      Yes... there is some truth to that - not that I wouldn't like to join the forum and talk about the game, but I've backed about 30 successfull Projects so far and most of them have their own forums. So If I want to learn about their progress I will always return to the Kickstarter page instead of managing 30+ (and counting) Forum accounts every day.

    23. ThomasN on

      King Art, don't worry, a series of quality products by a company will never have the customer abandon that company. Hell, I even backed without reading the project description because I saw your logo on the right side and remembered Book Of Unwritten Tales.

      Please keep everyone posted on developments here on Kickstarter; most people don't want to have to join another forum … ;)
