battletechJordan Weisman is well on his way to yet another Kickstarter success.

The Seattle-based veteran entrepreneur and CEO of Harebrained Schemes is back with another game and this morning launched a Kickstarter campaign for BattleTech, a digital re-make of a tabletop game Weisman originally created 30 years ago that will be developed for PC, Mac, and Linux.

The campaign launched at 10 a.m. PT and has already raised more than $250,000 in less than one hour, which is somewhat astounding but not all that surprising given Harebrained Schemes’ track record on Kickstarter. The Seattle-based studio has already delivered three successful Kickstarter campaigns in the past few years: Shadowrun Returns, which raised $1.8 million, Golem Arcana, which raised $518,000, and Shadowrun: Hong Kong, which raised $1.2 million.

Before founding Harebrained Schemes in 2001, Weisman was known for startups including FASA, Virtual World Entertainment, Wizkids, 42 Entertainment, and Smith & Tinker.
