There are many cases when games don’t have the largest backing. Rather than being made from major AAA developers, titles are left in the hands of smaller studios with limited resources. That doesn’t mean the developing team is not competent and can’t put out a good game. It just limits their ability to get a game published quickly because of the limited funding. In these times, Kickstarter is available.

It’s what the people behind Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous are doing. Owlcat Games just announced that the Kickstarter campaign for this latest Pathfinder title will launch sometime in early February. That’s great news if your a fan of this team’s work. They have a history of having a lot of success with these campaigns, as is pretty clear with their previous Pathfinder game Kingmaker.

Now that we know funding is about to begin for this upcoming game, let’s dive into some details that we currently know at the moment. First, let’s talk about some of the screenshots that have recently surfaced. Overall, they have a pretty dungeon-crawler vibe to them. There is a lot of darkness with lighted torches here and there for added contrast.

The screenshots showing off the day cycle have way more color, which juxtaposes with the night cycles perfectly. You’ll have two different experiences depending on when you play, which is certainly a good sign in terms of variety.

As far as the premise, you’ll be trying to create an army determined to defeat demonic forces. They are invading your lands and it will be up to you to lead a resistance. The fate of your people depend on it. As you get farther into this game, you’ll be able to upgrade your forces in all sorts of ways depending on how you want to approach the demons.

There will be plenty of artifacts for you to find throughout Worldwound, which should give you a strategic advantage in various ways. It also seems like the developer wanted to gather input from the community when creating this game. They want this to be the best Pathfinder experience yet, and if they listened to fans, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous certainly could be.

The visuals already look spectacular and the developer notes on gameplay elements show a lot of promise as well. As we draw closer to February, you can bet we’ll hear more details and probably see some gameplay trailers.
