The Kickstarter campaign for the World War II base-building game Ground of Aces has reached its goal of €30,000.00 within four hours. With the Swiss-Polish studio thanking its community, they have also presented the first stretch goals for additional content.
The first two additional stretch goals of €40,000.00 and €50,000.00 respectively have already been reached. Players can now look forward to bringing pets along on their air bases. You’ll also be able to build new structures for gathering intel on the enemy. While there are a few minor stretch goals in between, the next major goal is €100,000.00. This will add Germany as a playable party in the theatrical campaign. This particular campaign tells the story of the Battle of Britain.
Ground of Aces – Build a better base
In Ground of Aces, players will be able to build and micromanage a World War II air base that is inhabited by a diverse cast of pilots and crew members. While you can play Ground of Aces in a never-ending free-build mode, the Theatre Campaigns will give you specific glimpses into World War II and the challenges air bases and their crews had to face, such as the story of the Battle of Britain.
It is inspired by free-form base builder games like Rimworld and Going Medieval. As well as history strategy games like Hearts of Iron IV. The art style will pay homage to the “ligne claire” style of Franco-Belgian comics like Biggles and Buck Danny. The game is being developed for PC, with a planned release in 2024.
