Kickstarter Success for Iron Harvest
Iron Harvest, the 1920’s diesel-punk real-time strategy game from King Art Games has quickly reached their Kickstarter goal. This is after just 36-hours of launch. The game is essentially a video game adaptation of the Scythe board game. Combining the aesthetics of the 1920’s with large mechanized robots certainly makes for an interesting and unique title.
The original base campaign’s aim is only $450,000 but it is currently beyond $600,000 with 28 days to go. This adds cinematic cut scenes and is closer to adding multiplayer at the $1,000,000 funding mark. After that, a stretch goal of a free DLC campaign is available at $1,500,000.
Depending on the result of the Kickstart Campaign, Iron Harvest can end up with:
- Three playable factions with over 40 unit types and 9 heroes
- Three singleplayer campaigns with an overarching story (21 missions)
- Singleplayer & Co-op skirmish matches
- Singleplayer & Co-op challenge maps
- Competitive multiplayer (ranked matches, seasons)
- Free DLC & Updates

To keep the interest in the campaign rolling, King Art Games has now released a pre-alpha gameplay footage. This also comes with annotations so that viewers are aware of the gameplay mechanics.
