Kickstarter - Battletech - (Turn Based Tactical Computer Game)

I've been a Battletech fan since it was Battledroids (damn Lucas and his "droid" trademark.) Although I liked the tabletop game just fine, Battletech really shined on my C-64 as a computer game. Yeah, I guess I'm showing my age.

Anyhow, a new turn based tactical computer game version of Battletech is being Kickstarted. It's already funded and then some. It seriously has the potential to be the most funded computer game on Kickstarter.  The fact that it's releasing in Windows, Mac and Linux flavors is the icing on the cake.

Can you tell I'm excited?

The goal was $250k. It's currently passed $1.3m will 31 days of funding to go. Yeah, this should be a fun ride.


  1. Have you tried MegaMek? great adaptation of the tabletop. we use it for pick up games or with RPG integration.

  2. Given the work that HBS has done on Shadowrun, and since it's BATTLETECH, this was an instant fund for me.

  3. I dont back kickstarters, as I'm one a poor boy, and two distrustful of people in general. But this looks ******* awesome!

  4. It's a bit disappointing that they are not doing PvP unless they hit $2.5M. It funded right away, but 2.5 is a long way away and it just isn't BattleTech if you can't play your friends.

  5. Now HBS just needs to get their mits on Earthdawn and the circle will be complete.
