KING Art Games is behind the Kickstarter for Battle Worlds: Kronos, and they believe they've been in more contact with players the last few weeks than in the "ten years before combined." It's humanising 'The Player'.
The studio "certainly hope" that community-driven development is in their future from now on. Battle Worlds: Kronos has been Greenlit on Steam. Overfunding means iOS, Android and Ouya.
