“We agreed with Deep Silver that King Art will retain total creative control,” King Art Games said in a blog post. “Deep Silver have also committed themselves to help with things like production, first-party relations e.g., so we can concentrate to fulfill all of our promises towards you. With their support, more content, potentially more platforms, and even a level editor are now on the horizon.”
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
Iron Harvest is a real-time strategy game (RTS) set in the alternate reality of 1920+, just after the end of the Great War. We asked over 15,000 real-time strategy fans in a big survey what they expect from a modern RTS and we are in constant contact with our community. Our goal is to make the real-time strategy fans actually want.
