My sensibilities are changing. I'm reading more science fiction, I'm starting to like ugly, lumbering, Steampunky robots crashing through an alternate 1920's reality.
Iron Harvest, a real time strategy game from KING Art Games and the artist Jakub Rozalski, has been announced and tickles my fancy on premise alone. Here's the skinny:
After World War I farmers found a plethora of unexploded ordnance, barbed wire, weapons, shrapnel and bullets while ploughing their fields. They called it the Iron Harvest.”
Interested? The screenshots and artwork might just push you over the edge:
There's pedigree here as well; KING Art Games developed The Dwarves (which I played at EGX earlier in the year) and The Book of Unwritten Tales, so this isn't an unknown foray or the case of fresh studio making something extremely ambitious.
The bad news? You'll have to wait until 2018 to get your mitts on it.
You can keep up to date with Iron Harvest on the game's website, here.
