has launched a Kickstarter campaign
for Sword of the Stars: Ground Pounders
, a new title inspired by classic wargames such as Panzer General, and steeped in the lore of the Sword of the Stars universe. Ground Pounders lets players control an army from one of three factions, comprised of several dozen of types of units, lead them across a variety of worlds, increase their experience levels and abilities over three campaigns, and use them to unlock special action cards that can be used to add unique effects to their single-player or cross platform multiplayer battles.
Ground Pounders can be played in single-player mode or head-to-head in multi-player battles. Multiplayer match-ups will also be playable across multiple platforms - the game in development will allow players on a PC to lock horns against players on all Android-compatible devices.
