“WARMACHINE: Tactics” Kickstarter Campaign, Over 200% Funded, in Final Days

BELLEVUE, WA, August 6, 2013 – The Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of the WARMACHINE: Tactics video game is in its final days, leaving potential backers just three more days to support the game’s development and claim the campaign’s exclusive backer incentives. The campaign ends August 9.

WARMACHINE: Tactics reached its $550,000 funding goal in less than 35 hours, broke $1 million in the first half of the campaign, and attained over 200% of its funding goal in under three weeks. Since the campaign’s fast start, it has garnered major media attention and has spent several days at the top of Kicktraq’s Hot List. Over 15,000 people have pledged to the WARMACHINE: Tactics campaign.

Based on the award-winning WARMACHINE tabletop game, WARMACHINE: Tactics is a turn-based, squad-level strategy game for PC and Mac produced in cooperation between Privateer Press Interactive and developer WhiteMoon Dreams.

“We are just in awe of the incredible support people have shown to WARMACHINE: Tactics,” said Matt Wilson, creator of WARMACHINE and owner and Chief Creative Officer of Privateer Press Interactive. “The more than one dozen stretch goals that have been met are really going to help us make the game we always saw in our minds. With even more stretch goals remaining, I can’t wait to see WARMACHINE: Tactics become the best experience possible.”

“Our entire studio is completely blown away by peoples’ response for WARMACHINE: Tactics,” said Jay Koottarappallil, CEO of WhiteMoon Dreams. “The fact that we share the same dream as the players do assures us that we’re going in the right direction, building something that we’re all going to love playing for years to come!”
