Battle Worlds: Kronos has been a labor of love for developer KING Art Games. Originally created more than six years ago, the project has taken Kickstarter by storm and has more than doubled its original goal by the campaigns closing three days ago.
Designed for Mac, PC, Linux, and Web browsers, an iPad version of the game will also come to fruition.
The game has a singular focus: to bring the turn-based strategy game into the modern age for experienced players. Taking a dose of inspiration from classics like Battle Isle and Advanced Wars, the title stays true to the genre as players must use their available resources to the best effect possible in the battle for Kronos.
Here’s a quick video about the project.

Along with single-player campaigns and challenge maps, users can take on their friends in the live multiplayer mode. The asynchronous multiplayer option will let gamers take all the time they need to consider their moves. The round is stored on a server and then turned over to the opponent.
Estimated to be released in December 2013.
