Petroglyph is pitching what looks like an RTS but involves no base building or resource management. Instead it's a online arena game for teams. Bouts are relatively quick (15-20 mins) and bestow experience that strengthens your persistent pool of units that you select from before each battle begins.
The theme is World War 2 and the North African theatre of war. The presentation has a cartoon edge to it, and there's already a playable prototype up and running.
Full development will require $700,000. But Victory, ironically, is a long way away: only $16,373 has been raised in a couple of days.
