Kickstarter has an uncanny ability of reviving supposedly dead genres and proving that our corporate overlords fail to grasp what the popular taste is all about. Anyway. KING Art Games, the people responsible for hilarious point-and-clicker The Book of Unwritten Tales, have unleashed their plans for a glorious looking turn-based strategic offering: Battle World - Kronos. A game that, should it reach its funding goal, will be made available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Battle World will obviously support all sorts of multiplayer options, no DRM whatsoever and, according to its devs, a well-sized single player campaign and smart A.I.. Oh, and if those are pre-alpha (!) graphics we are looking at, the thing is bound to look amazing.
