BattleTech is back, the classic giant robots fighting game will make a comeback on PC.
Developer Harebrained Schemes and BattleTech creator Jordan Weisman pitched a single player, turn-based Mech strategy game to fans, looking for $250,000. They’ve managed to fund the campaign in less than an hour.
“Our goal is to craft a combat system for BATTLETECH that’s the perfect blend of tactical depth, speed of play, and meaningful unit customization,” Harebrained Schemes writes on its Kickstarter page. “As we did with our Shadowrun games, we intend to capture the *spirit* of the original tabletop rules, while designing the best PC game we can.”
