Pathfinder: Kingmaker has reached its Kickstarter goal of $500,000 half-way through its fundraiser campaign. The project is now proceeding towards its first stretch goals, aiming to add camping and a Magus character class, at $550K and $600K respectively.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker will allow players to build their own kingdoms using the Pathfinder pen and paper roleplaying system adapted for the PC to the tune of at least $500,000. With Chris Avellone on board, this will be the first time that Pathfinder is adapted to a CRPG format. The project has reached its Kickstarter funding goal and is now moving towards its first stretch goals.
The first stretch goal will add camping as a highly interactive feature to the game, along with guard/watch duty and random encounters associated with resting your party. The next stretch goal to reach at $600,000 aims to add the Magus class, a battle-mage kind of character to the game.
As previously mentioned, Pathfinder: Kingmaker will be published by My.com and developed by Owlcat Games. How having a big name Eastern European publisher on board goes together with fundraising via Kickstarter for the studio's first game is anyone's best guess, but I presume it's fine as long as the game sees the light of day without too many profit driven shenanigans .
There are two weeks left on the Kickstarter timer for the funding run, and if the project sounds like something you might want to support, you can do so here . Pathfinder: Kingmaker is scheduled to make good on its Kickstarter promises for PC sometime in August 2018.
