Battle Worlds: Kronos - Turn-based strategy from KING Art Games

It's been an excellent year for games of all kinds so far, and the good news keeps piling up! One of the latest interesting developments is Battle Worlds: Kronos, currently up for funding on Kickstarter from KING Art Games.

Yes, the very same KING Art Games who brought us the immensely entertaining adventure game The Book of Unwritten Tales, which we reviewed last year.

Battle Worlds: Kronos is different, though. It's not a fantasy game, it's not a lighthearted comic romp, and above all, it's not a traditional point and click adventure game. It is, however, another example of a once-mighty genre that has only shown signs of a rennaissance very recently: the turn-based strategy game. In Battle Worlds: Kronos, you play the commander of a mechanized army in the grand tradition of games like Battle Isle and Advance Wars. The map is hex-based, there's a generous number of units in each faction, and the graphics are pretty damn good.

The Kickstarter is currently at $190,000 out of their $120,000 goal, so this is definitely happening! Do check the page to see what stretch goals they have to offer, though.

We conducted a very enlightening interview with KING Art Games, which will be posting later this week. In the meantime, check out some screenshots and visit the game's Kickstarter page for videos and further information.

This one might just turn out to be something special. Stay tuned for more detailed information!
