    We have a great selection of successful Kickstarters to recap this month. All these projects have been successfully funded and will be available to buy soon!   BattleTech: Clan Invasion BattleTech is a board game set in the 31st century, in which war rages across the galaxy and empires clash in epic combat. 30 foot-tall epic humanoid mechanized titans, bristling with weaponry, fight for power and the glory of their Empire.

    Immortal Era: number #1

    - by Parallel Worlds

    200 years in the future and there hasn’t been a single recorded death since the millenium. Overcrowding and limited resources have forced the population in two. The lucky microchipped few live in the relative luxury of Megalopolis City, while the rest eke out an existence in the brutal and dangerous underground. Author Edward Davies has had the idea of the Immortal Era rattling around in his head for over 25 years; it’s through the magic of Kickstarter that he’s finally able to see his…
