Iron Harvest, the real-time strategy game is funded, set in the alternate reality of 1920+, reached its last main-game stretch goal on Kickstarter two days ago. The last stretch goal remaining now is a free DLC campaign at $1.5M. This would release post-launch.
The Kickstarter is Funded:
The very successful campaign is currently in its last 48 hours. It is already one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns for video games in recent years. Backers of the project can choose from a wide variety of reward packages. Including lavish special boxed editions. All backers will get access to early versions of the game. And will receive special behind-the-scenes updates.
Iron Harvest – Pre-Alpha Gameplay
Linux and Mac versions?
“Our previous games all got Mac and Linux versions but we can’t promise that for Iron Harvest at this point. Iron Harvest is a much more complex game than our previous games. For example because of multiplayer and we don’t want to promise anything we might not be able to deliver. We’ll look into the possibilities when we’re closer to release.”
So that being said, we hope that the campaign being funded will incur Linux support. Since this has been a request with developer KING Art Games for some time. Meaning, this is a wait and see.
“Getting feedback from the community early on is one of the main advantages of doing a Kickstarter”, says Jan Theysen, Game Director at developer KING Art Games. “We already received tons of ideas and constructive feedback based on our super-early Kickstarter demo of the game. Well over a dozen features and little improvements already found their way into the game.”
Campaign Backers will have get to play the Alpha 1 of Iron Harvest in early August.
