battle_world_kronos_specialKing Art Games sent over a press release this morning letting fans know that they've passed the Greenlight process for Battle Worlds: Kronos on Steam, and are on their way towards developing a build for Steam to approve.

Also, with 8 days left on their Kickstarter, they've surpassed the first stretch goal of $200,000, and are attempting to clear the second stretch goal at $250,000.

To celebrate, King Art Games released a series of new screens showcasing different environments in the game, giving fans an idea of what they'll have in store once the game is released. Also included is a memorial screenshot for their recent success, with units on a field of play representing each individual backer across a 200,000 hex field to commemorate passing the first stretch goal.

Check out the full press release below, along with the brand new screens.

BREMEN, Germany – April 19, 2013 – KING Art Games today announced it has been given the green light from Steam users after a community vote to get their newest creation, turn-based strategy Battle Worlds: Kronos, available on the popular digital distribution platform.

KING Art celebrated the greenlight by releasing a series of assets, including a unique screenshot of 6,500 units on a 200,000 hex-field map of the Battle Worlds: Kronos world—one unit for every backer and one hex-field for every dollar given to the game’s enormously successful Kickstarter campaign. The map shows a key difference between turn-based strategy games and real-time strategy titles. In a real-time game, the resources for dealing with such high numbers of units are problematic, but in Battle Worlds: Kronos large scale battles can be handled with ease. Demonstrating the benefits of turn-based gameplay in the efficient use of power, KING Art has provided their backers with a fitting tribute to their support.

“We’re blown away by the positive reaction to Battle Worlds: Kronos from the Steam community and are looking forward to bringing them the final game later this year,” Said Jan Theysen, Project Lead at KING Art. “When our backers started asking us about the size of maps that could be generated, we decided to experiment ourselves and pay tribute to their generosity. We created a screenshot that can show how big it’s possible to go in turn-based strategy—let this be a tribute to all our backers and excellent friends at Steam!”

Screenshots depicting new snow and ice environments are also available, showing off the wide range of topographies available on the world of Kronos.

Battle Worlds: Kronos is a classic turn-based strategy game in the tradition of Battle Isle and Advance Wars. It was funded through Kickstarter in only 7 days and is currently nearing its second stretch-goal (including iOS & Android versions of the game): http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kingartgames/battle-worlds-kronos-turn-based-strategy-revisited
