Iron Harvest, the much anticipated real-time strategy set in an alternative Europe, has almost completed its Kickstarter campaign in its entirety. At the moment, King ART Games is hoping to get all their goals met, with a few hours to go.

Iron Harvest's campaign seems to be trudging along well, with only its Free DLC Campaign goal left to beat. Having racked up 75 percent of its first Kickstarter goal in just one day after launch, its popularity is undeniable.

As you can see, KING Art Games have taken care of the base game and campaigns, as well as the multiplayer with co-op campaigns and challenges. Leagues and seasons for Iron Harvest's multiplayer component have been successfully funded as well.

Having said that, it's time to refresh our memory on what to expect from Iron Harvest to begin with. The game is set in the World of 1920+, an alternative European timeline that occurred after WWI protagonists found steam and steel engines of war to be the real deal.

What's left are the Polania Republic, the Rusviet and the Saxon Empire. Don't you just love how Rusviet rolls off the tongue? Anyway, all the empires will have their own heroes, three each. KING Art Games already teased three heroes, namely - Polania's Anna, Rusviet's Olga and Saxony's Gunter.

Being passionate gamers, Iron Harvest devs promised a single campaign to remember. They think it has been too long since any real time strategy had a really memorable campaign, prompting many to throw their hats in the air. Yes, we too, even though we have very little hats here.

Iron Harvest will come with three campaigns, with 21 missions intertwining into a unified story. Obviously, we need not worry about this part, seeing as how it's been funded a while back.
