Looks like NGNG got on with this one too. I guess that's a good thing?

Ah cool, I heard Harebrained were going to get to use the models and art from MWO, which I think is a good thing.

Hope they don't use the maps!
I assume that means there will be cinematic scenes between turns showing the action? That would be pretty cool.
There was a Zoids TBS game a few years ago on 360 that was like that. I hope this is better. LOL
And a replay function at the end so you can watch the entire battle uninterrupted.

This will be a isometric type game I think - a followup to the MechCommander games.

We'll see how true they stay to the Battletech tabletop rules.

Ohhh god. Isometric... Really, in this day and age.... Loosing interest pretty damn quick.


Fighterops...

The only TRUE Stealth crowd funded game.

Devs said there was stuff there, but you just couldn't see it.

$25, but I'll go to $50 if we get to the point of a dynamic campaign or certainly MP.
I'd actually settle for a modern Mechcommander. This sounds similar, but with more management and turn based.

Yep I did the $25 and if they hit the campaign level I'll up it to $50.

I backed them at $25 for Shadowrun and they did a great job with it.

I haven't jumped on board yet but I will. Trying to remind myself that I don't NEED a huge kurita wall banner.

You don't need a huge kurita wall banner.

But a huge Liao wall banner is a different matter!

Crossed a mil, we get a SP campaign.
Next neeed: 1.85 mil for side-missions, procedurally-generated missions and the campaign becomes open-ended.

Well THIS was a nice way to start our day. Since our last update, youve unlocked two more funding goals for STAGE 2!
Whoa!
Whoa!

Were really excited about our next funding goal:

$1,350,000 - Voice Acting: We'll record a cast of talented voice actors to act as your advisers, provide mission briefings, and record battlefield emotes. Well also add voice acting to the animatics for important moments in the story.

And while were on the subject, did you know that one of the voice actors in MechCommander 2 works at Harebrained Schemes?
#HeyDagger! #BATTLETECH
#HeyDagger! #BATTLETECH

Maybe if enough people tweet at her, #HeyDagger! #BATTLETECH, we can get her to reprise her role during the live streaming Twitch Q&A session that you unlocked by completing Backer Missions. smile

Be sure to SHARE this with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. Jordan, Mitch, and Mike love talking to our Backers and were thinking of more ways to make our live streams fun. If you have ideas, leave a message for us on the MAIN Comments page. You can get our attention by shouting HEY HBS!

The Global BattleTech Community is doing an amazing job on those Backer Missions. You BLEW through Jordans first WEEKLY BONUS BACKER MISSION!
BONUS MISSION COMPLETE!
BONUS MISSION COMPLETE!

It's Throwback Thursday!

Jordan loved sharing one of his favorite BattleTech memories and loved hearing your BattleTech memories even more. He was so excited, he went through his old photographs and found some pictures from the GenCon 1988 wedding of Hanse Davion and Melissa Steiner.

Here's the invitation.

And here's the cake!
I have a bad feeling about this.
I have a bad feeling about this.

Although the first Bonus Mission is complete, we still want to hear your BattleTech memories. Folks are tweeting out all sorts of stuff, including their own videos! Remember to use #BTmemory and #BATTLETECH.

Onward to STAGE 3!

- HBS
