When Harebrained Schemes launched Kickstarter campaigns for two turn-based strategy games based on Jordan Weisman’s fantasy world of Shadowrun, the company raised more than $3 million.
Today Harebrained turns toward another Weisman franchise, BattleTech, with a new Kickstarter campaign that aims to raise $250,000. Weisman is CEO of Harebrained. Once again, the company is looking to tell a big sci-fi story through turn-based combat mechanics. BattleTech’s focus is on post-apocalyptic giant mechs, while Shadowrun tells the stories of fantasy characters in a cyberpunk dystopia.
