In an effort to update an aging client without breaking the developer's bank, World War II Online: Battleground Europe
turned to the community to crowdfund the project -- and the community delivered.
A $9,250 fundraiser on Indiegogo
dedicated to the creation of a new test server, PC client, and Mac client was met and surpassed this past week. The update, which should roll out within six months, will include billing tools for Steam and improved audio and visuals.
The crowdfunding campaign is now aiming for stretch goals that could add community upgrades, improved tech infrastructure, and additional marketing.
