'Iron Harvest' (ALL) Worldwide Publishing Rights Picked Up By Deep Silver

Iron Harvest is a real-time strategy game set in the world of 1920+, an alternate version of our own world where mankind, fascinated by technology, engines and iron, invented powerful walking machines.

Once mighty weapons on the battlefields of the Great War, they are now part of everyday life. Mighty factions fight for influence, while hidden forces are working towards the destabilization of Europe, determined to set the world on fire once again. Now, a few years after the Great War, secret forces are working towards the destabilization of Europe, determined to set the world on fire and seize control.

After World War 1 farmers found a plethora of unexploded ordnance, barbed wire, weapons, shrapnel and bullets while ploughing their fields. They called it the Iron Harvest.

You lead hero characters, mechs, and soldiers into battle. Cover mechanics and dynamic destruction play a major role in combat. Your squads take cover automatically, but a simple brick wall will only offer protection against small calibers, not against mech-mounted cannons. Throughout its open sandbox levels you have to find your own way to reach the goals set by the dynamic story line.

KING Art Games has signed a worldwide distribution/publishing agreement with Deep Silver to bring Iron Harvest to market.
Jan Theysen, Creative Director at KING Art said: “We are delighted to be able to work with the experienced team at Deep Silver. With the releases of Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Metro Exodus Deep Silver proved that they understand European games and are able to successfully promote them worldwide. Iron Harvest is our biggest project so far and we are aware that many RTS-fans have been eagerly waiting for it. Alongside the team at Deep Silver we work to create an amazing game and to fulfil our incredibly supportive community’s expectations ”
Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO Koch Media said: „We are happy to welcome the German Studio KING Art as new partner. The team’s experience, their past titles e.g. „The Dwarves“ with their amazing feedback within the gaming community and the high quality of their work as a studio confirm the trust we have in this cooperation. This is underlined by the great support the team at KING Art is receiving from their fans. Our global publishing teams are looking forward to this exciting new project and are ready to support the development and the game’s global launch with our local, tailor made publishing campaigns."

The Saxony Empire is one of the most influential countries in Europe, with powerful industry, developed cities, modern factories and a strong military tradition. After the unfavorable conditions of surrender in the Great War, the current mood in the Empire is bad, and proud elites and humiliated aristocrats secretly oppose the Emperor’s appeasement policies.

The Polania Republic is a large agricultural country with a long history. It is trying to maintain its status and territory, struggling with its aggressive neighbors: The Saxony Empire in the west and Rusviet in the east. Polania initiated a program to modernize its army while a large part of the country is still occupied by Rusviet forces.

Rusviet Rusviet is huge, powerful, and has unmatched industrial and population potential. However, the country is tired and worn out by the long war. People are frustrated, and the power of Tsar Nikolaj weakens. Mysterious Grigori Rasputin has become an extraordinarily powerful man and revolution is in the air...

1920+ was developed by Polish artist Jakub Różalski and earned him a cult-following because of his beautiful artworks painted in the style of the old masters.
