TACTICAL ‘MECH
COMBAT RETURNS TO THE PC.

Harebrained Schemes is pleased to announce their return to Kickstarter this Fall to partner with Backers in co-funding the creation of BATTLETECH. Jordan Weisman, the creator of BattleTech and MechWarrior, is back with the first turn-based BattleTech game for PC in over two decades. Steeped in the feudal political intrigue of the BattleTech universe, the game will feature an open-ended Mercenaries-style campaign that blends RPG ‘Mech and MechWarrior management with modern turn-based tactics.


Who is going all Grimnar on this ?

In the grim darkness of the 2nd millennium, there is no "try".
I call this sci-fi amalgamation Starhammer: 2K.

Also I check that website every couple of days because I don't trust them to email me when it hits kickstarter :p

Teamwork is essential, it gives the enemy someone else to shoot at.

Going all Grimnar
To spend more and more money on something that will never be successful.

Going to go all Gramnir on your sentence structure live >.<

Also this doesn't bode well for Star Citizen if I only invest in games that won't ever become successful. Or was Star Citizen "successful" before any content was even released? Greatest video game scam ever?

Switched my work desktop to that first BT image. I love how they offer mobile versions too.

Truth be told though I'd pay a lot more for a game that immerses you into the BT fluff set in either the 4th Succession War or the Clan Invasion than I would for a simple mech game, be it FPS or TTS or whatever. Be kind of hard to start up a merc unit during the Clan Invasion so if they go that way you'd have to play either a house pilot (Uhlans or Donegal units for example) or a pilot of a major merc company (Wolf's Dragoons, Kell Hounds, Northwind Highlanders etc). Don't think I'd be interested in plying as a clanner unless it's a sort of Aidan Pryde style clanner...even a captured IS pilot would make a good story I think ala Phelan Kell.

Dammit why do I keep doing this? I always start thinking about a game like this and just end up getting sad knowing it will likely never happen and that the IP seems to be attracting shitty devs :(

Grimnar, I have this kickstarter I'm about to launch, It will pull at your heart strings, suck your bank account dry with promises and then fold 5 years later leaving nothing but a cached digital footprint.
