BATTLETECH Kickstarter launched

Harebrained Schemes has launched its Kickstarter campaign for BattleTech, a new, turn-based tactical wargame set in the universe of the miniature game BattleTech and its roleplaying-based spin-off, MechWarrior.

The new game will be helmed by Jordan Weisman, the co-creator of the entire BattleTech/MechWarrior franchise, along with many of the same team who worked on the recent Shadowrun RPGs.

As of this time of writing, less than 24 hours after the launch of the campaign and with 34 days to go, the game has already made $600,000 and seems likely to hit the $1 million target, at which point the game will get a fully-fleshed out singleplayer campaign in addition to a skirmish mode.

Yep, already in up to the Stackpole novel level. I loved his Warrior trilogy, loved the 3025 game setting/ruleset as well. Clans borked the game balance but, bygones.

I hope this one makes it. I keep backing/buying Battletech games and it has not gone smoothly.

The Legend of the Jade Phoenix was a great trilogy. Wish I still had the books I'd probably reread them. Fund story. Highly recommend

Adam, aren't you going to write about Game of Thrones winning major Emmy Awards?

Possibly tomorrow, although it's getting a bit old as news now.
