One look at the mech models from the board game Scythe and it’s hard not to think “I’d love a strategy video game based on these beautiful bastards”. Well, this exact wish was granted late last year when developer King Art Games announced Iron Harvest. Now, not only do we have a couple of new screenshots, but a healthy chunk of gameplay in video form.
I have to say, the mechs in the video look and sound satisfying. Case in point: check out the 0:45-mark when the tubby mech locks itself down and sprays an unfortunate platoon with lead. Poor fellas, they never stood a chance.

And now there’s a game set in the same universe.”]
For those keen for more, you won’t have to wait long. King Art will launch a Kickstarter campaign on March 13, which I’m sure will be packed with goodness. And funding tiers, as crowdfunding things are wont to have.
