Heavy Gear Assault Kickstarter

Here's a new Kickstarter from Stompy Bot Productions for Heavy Gear Assault, a revival of the Metal Gear series of mech combat games. The plan is to raise at least $800K to recreate the game "with the technology of tomorrow," which is how they describe the Unreal Engine 4 (thanks Neutronbeam). This is planned for Windows, OS X, and Linux, and there are also plans to support a subset of game features for smartphones, and there is a clear focus on e-sports support. Here's the pitch:

The world of Heavy Gear Assault is unforgiving – but so is your lust for glory. A pilot on the distant planet Terra Nova, you play the high-stakes game of competitive Gear Dueling. You earn fame and fortune by making a name for yourself on the arena floor. You stand out from the crowd by customizing the look and style of your Gear. You manage corporate sponsors, hire a support staff and fine-tune your Gear’s performance in the Gear Bay. You rise to the top, claim your position – and with every cannon shell left in your magazines, you refuse to let go.
