One of the most beautiful things about video games is that the inspiration for the titles they make can come from anywhere. And that even means that it can come from established properties and titles. For example the Pathfinder series, which is an actual role-playing game as in you play it with dice and other players like Dungeons & Dragons. Well, the team at Owlcat Games loved this series so much that they wanted to make a video game RPG out of it. So, they contacted the owners of Pathfinder, and asked if they could do it. They said yes, and now Pathfinder: Kingmaker is on Kickstarter.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker is a single-player and isometric RPG that is set in the realm of Pathfinder, so it’s an all-new adventure in the world and not just a rehash of the game itself. The team takes inspiration not just from Pathfinder, but also from Baldur’s Gate, Fallout, and more. Their hope is that when it’s done you’ll feel the fun and joy of making your own character, adventuring through a major world, and seeing how the world reacts to the decisions you make.
Let us tell you, they have BIG expectations for the game. They lay out that the game is 40 hours strong just for the main story, but then when you add the sidequests, it’ll grow to 80. That’s a lot! Add to that, they state that there’s 100 monsters you can fight, 10 different classes your characters can be, and 7 different races that you can meet and interact with. Or in other words, a fully-fledged world, and we’re just scratching the surface here, trust us.
Oh, and of course, if they raise enough money, they’ll unveil stretch goals, which as you’ll see on their Kickstarter page, they have some in mind already. The goal for the game is $500,000, and it’ll be live until July 11th. So don’t miss out on your chance to see the Pathfinder world brought to life video game style in Pathfinder: Kingmaker!
