This marks the month anniversary of our Kickstarter Spotlight article. Two of our projects we’ve highlighted have already reached their respective goals, ones right at the finish line, and our newest is just beginning.
Battle Worlds: Kronos – KING Art Games – Bremen, Germany
KING Art Games has met not only their initial goal, but their first stretch goal as well. There’s still plenty of time left on their Kickstarter-campaign, and Battle Worlds: Kronos is well on the way to meeting the second set of stretch goals. The second stretch goal tier includes an iOS, Android, and OUYA port! We recently had some time to catch up with Colin Gilzean, the producer for Battle Wars: Kronos, and have him answer some questions about their wildly successful Kickstarter-campaign.

Divinity: Original Sin – Larian Studios – Sacramento, Ca
Larian Studios has already met their initial goal for Divinity: Original Sin. Now it’s time for them to focus on some of their stretch goals. Divinity: Original Sin summarized:
- Divinity:Original Sin is an Isometric cRPG.
- You can play in single player mode but also in cooperative multiplayer mode
- It’s a real epic CRPG so even in multiplayer, you’re engaging in much more than just combat and item fever. A nifty cooperative dialog system, a highly reactive world, a deep character development system and plenty of choice and consequence situations see to that.
- You can create your own RPG adventures with our powerful RPG editor andshare or play them with friends
- Combat is very tactical. It is turn-based and features things like skill and spell combos, attacks of opportunity, action points and much more.
- Exploration is greatly rewarded.
- You can develop your character(s) to fit your playstyle using our classless skill and stats system.
- There are countless item interactions and item combinations waiting to be discovered.
- No Divinity game is complete without music composed by the brilliant Kirill Pokrovsky.
