One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Under A Week Left for Heavy Steam on Kickstarter

Heavy Steam Kickstarter

No matter what sort of medium it’s represented by, steampunk will always have a soft spot in my heart. There’s just something about mixing science with the great aesthetics of the Victorian/steam age that really gets my gears going! We’ve seen our fair share of steampunk tabletop games, but there’s one currently on Kickstarter that breaks the mold in many different ways: Heavy Steam.

With under a week left on its campaign, Heavy Steam is still searching for about $7,000 in funding to meet its goal. In Heavy Steam you take the role of a pilot behind the controls of a giant mechanical humanoid war machine of certain doom. You’ll need to use your war machine’s resources to complete scenario objectives and maneuver the rest of your army to crush your opponent and secure victory. You’ll constantly need to decide on whether to funnel resources into your weapons, or bolster your defenses to make sure you stay on top of your opponent.

Heavy Steam looks like a wonderful game that’s not just a miniatures game, but more like a heavy resource management game. Not to mention, the models look amazing! There are plenty of reward tiers, including a pledge level that will get you just the miniatures if that’s your thing. Make sure you head over to the Heavy Steam campaign page and help make the game a reality!
