Current Highlighted Crowd Funding Projects (Last update: 11-21)

1 post in this topic

Every week I do the This Week In Gaming article which includes current Kickstarter, Fig, Indiegogo, etc projects, usually each article will have anywhere from 1-4 crowd funding projects. I'll keep the ones I am aware of that are still active in this pinned thread as it is easier for me than starting multiple threads for things that not everyone will have an interest in. I will also share the ones that recently succeeded and ones that have options to support the project still available. If one of these does interests you, feel free to start a thread in this section of the forums to spread the word or to post updates on the project as it, hopefully, nears release.

Build the Kingdom YOU want!

Quote

One big and important part of our game is the kingdom feature. We don't want the kingdom to be a simple gimmick - imagine the kingdom like an extra companion. So you rightfully wanted to know - what does that mean? How does it work? What does it do? Enjoy our latest update and learn more about the Kingdom feature!

Gameplay Mechanics: Character Building and Difficulty

Quote

We received a ton of questions about game mechanics from you and this update's purpose is to answer at least some of them. In our first mechanics-based update we're focusing on difficulty, build diversity and character development.

Companions: Introducing Valerie, the Brevic Fighter

Quote

The Stolen Lands are a dangerous place! Fortunately, you will meet other brave adventurers on your quest, who will fight by your side or who may ultimately choose to betray you, depending on your actions. They all have their own story, their own goals and motivations, their own reasons to join you. They are your companions, who will help you build and rule your kingdom. Some of these companions are familiar faces from the Adventure Path. Some may even be popular Pathfinder iconics. Others are completely new. We are going to introduce them to you in a series of updates. Our first companion update is dedicated to Valerie.

How Tabletop Gaming Inspires Our CRPG

Quote

For each of the events, we want to offer many different solutions to you. Do you want to intimidate the kobolds or make a diplomatic arrangement with them? It's entirely up to you. Or just rid them of their miserable existence if bloodthirsty solutions are your forte! Some of the options become available to you only if you met certain criteria (being very lawful for example). Others will require certain skill checks which will vary in difficulty, depending on how you attempt to reach your goal. For example, it is much easier to intimidate a coward than to persuade him.

Companions: Introducing Ekundayo, the Grim Ranger

Quote

We continue our story about those who will accompany you on your journey to the Stolen Lands. Many heroes rightfully call themselves Pathfinders – from the mighty Fighters to the cunning Rogues – but nobody is as good at literally finding paths where there seem to be none as the Rangers.

Characters and animation

Quote

We have prepared a brand new video for today's update. As you've certainly guessed by our headline, it's all about characters and animation. Our technical director Alexey Drobyshevsky lets you have a first look at the inventory system and how putting on items works. He is also showing off some of our combat animations. Please be aware that the shown footage is still work in progress and we're still ironing out some kinks. With that in mind, we hope you will enjoy our new video and, as always, we can't wait to hear your comments and feedback.

Chris Avellone: Growing a Story

Quote

I’ve wanted to do a Pathfinder RPG for quite some time. When the opportunity came up, Owlcat explained they wanted to do something surprising – take one of Pathfinder’s existing Adventure Paths (an interconnected series of six modules that act as long story) and turn it into a computer RPG.

So my first thought is - what the hell do you need me for?

Global Map Exploration

Quote

Here's a brand new video update for you. Exploration is an important part of the Pathfinder: Kingmaker experience. We want you to have a great time traveling through the Stolen Lands and uncovering their secrets using our exploration system.

FANTASY STRIKE

Quote

We hope to bring together players from all fighting games. Street Fighter, Guilty Gear, Killer Instinct, Smash Bros, and so on are difficult games to play, so if you play one of those and your friend plays another, it's hard to get together to have a good match. Everyone can reach at least a basic level of competence in Fantasy Strike so quickly that it can bridge the gap to your fighting game friends. Or get newcomers into the genre.
