The developers of the Pathfinder: Kingmaker video game will soon be starting a Kickstarter to help fund the next game based on the tabletop property – Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.
The first edition of the Pathfinder tabletop RPG was an updated version of the third edition of Dungeons & Dragons. Pathfinder would go on to become the biggest name in the tabletop RPG world, supplanting Dungeons & Dragons and its unpopular fourth edition. Despite its popularity, there wasn’t much interest in developing Pathfinder video games. This all changed in 2017 when Owlcat Games launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund Pathfinder: Kingmaker, which was an isometric RPG inspired by games like Baldur’s Gate that was based on a Pathfinder campaign where the players built a kingdom of their own.
The Kickstarter announcement has clarified that Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous has already received several key investments and it seems as if the project will still go forward, regardless of the success of the crowdfunding campaign. The aim of the campaign is to further improve upon Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, so there will likely be targeted goals for new content in the Kickstarter.
The choice to start a Kickstarter for Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous might not be the best move for Owlcat Games. The reaction to Pathfinder: Kingmaker and its bizarre difficulty curve was polarizing and the game launched in a glitch-filled state, so fans might be a bit warier about supporting another project by the company, especially as Owlcat Games has confirmed that Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous has already received funding from other sources. We’ll have to wait and see if the bonuses and content on offer with the Kickstarter are enough to prompt fans to support another Pathfinder game.
The Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Kickstarter campaign will launch on February 4.
