The computer/console real-time strategy game set in the same art universe as Scythe is up on Kickstarter; some of the art depicted seems to be associated with the upcoming Scythe expansion Scythe: The Rise of Fenris, with glowing blue eyes and stuff...

I don't think there are any direct ties to The Rise of Fenris itself, it's just Jakub's shared "World of 1920+" series has that shared mythos.

Thank you for the heads up on the KS.

Thanks for letting me know! Had no idea it was coming to KS, though I did know about the game

That's right, same world, same artist, but no other connection to Scythe.

Looks like those hoping for more war in Jakub's world will finally get their wish!

I was looking at Iron Harvest and wondering, with no mention of Scythe, if they were stealing the IP or something. Glad to see its legit.

That...honestly seems like a really, really strong connection to Scythe.

Scythe is an engine-building board game designed by me and published by my company, Stonemaier Games. Iron Harvest is a RTS digital game designed and published by King Art Studio. The only connection is that they occupy the same world created by Jakub Rozalski. It is a connection, but that is the only connection.

Sigh. And its got a co-op campaign. Unfortunately, my gaming partner can't play RTS games anymore, so not much point to backing this. A pity.

I almost posted this here and was afraid it would be considered spam. OMG it looks fantastic, doesn't it? And I got my copy of Scythe in the mail! It finally dipped to a good level on Amazon. So much 1920+ in my life lately.

Iron Harvest would be a great setting for an area control/dudes on a map board game. I think IH is what some thought Sythe would be. Too bad the Sythe series is done.

Scythe isn't done. The Rise of Fenris will be released later this year.

That's what I meant, that RoF will be the final game. Have you played Root or considered publishing a more conflict oriented game?

Adam: I haven't played Root. The furthest I enjoy going into games with combat is Kemet.

Neck problems or something that give her horrific headaches if she focuses too intently on things. She can no longer paint minis, play computer games requiring too much concentration and several other things. It is very depressing. She's been to a variety of different doctors and pain specialists and none of them have been able to do anything about it, so if anyone has a brilliant idea for what can help we'd love to hear it.

Out of curiosity, has she tried an inversion table?

I saw a beta version being played on youtube, pretty impressive. It looks like it's low on strategy but the graphics are pretty good.
