Petroglyph Chases "Victory" Through Kickstarter Campaign

Paul Lilly

Strategy veterans announce Kickstarter campaign for a new team-based, action-strategy game.

Developer Petroglyph is hoping to raise $700,000 through Kickstarter to fund Victory , a World War II team-based, action-strategy game set where the gamer collects companies of units and does battle in quick online matches. Petroglyph's team is mostly comprised of former Command & Conquer developers. They have nine titles under the collective belt and two more in development, including Victory.

Victory is not a real-time strategy (RTS) because there's no base building or resource management, nor is it a free-to-play game. So what exactly is it?

"If World of Tanks, StarCraft, and League of Legends had a baby, it would be Victory," Oksana Kubushyna, Victory Project Lead, said in a statement.

Each game lasts between 15-20 minutes, which is not only great for busy gamers, but also allows you to get in more games during a single session, earning more rewards and progression with less time spent. Players are given control of a squad of units. Using RTS-like controls, the way to win is by capturing and holding key map locations, or by decimating all enemy units.

There's lots of info and a handful of videos to digest on Victory's Kickstarter page . Check it out and let us know what you think.
