Today, January 25th, the fourth game in Valiant Defense series – Lanzerath Ridge – hits the Kickstarter (at noon PST time!) For those eager to immediately jump to the campaign, link below:
As for the game itself, you take control of an intelligence and reconnaissance platoon and an artillery battery’s forward observer team in the village of Lanzerath, Belgium on the first day of the Battle of the Bulge. Under your command the defenders must fend off relentless attacks from German paratroopers and fusiliers.
Now, should you need more information before making conscious decision to back this project (which I hope you will do!) below some materials which can be helpful.
