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 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.
