Pen-and-Paper RPG Adaptation Pathfinder: Kingmaker Gains Metro Publisher’s Support

Pathfinder: Kingmaker

Deep Silver—the publisher behind Shenmue 3 and Metro: Exodus—has added another promising project to its upcoming slate in the form of the crowdfunded RPG Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

The deal, similar to the one struck with Warhorse Studios’s Kingdom Come: Deliverance, means that developer Owlcat Games will retain complete creative control over the project, while distribution and other overhead assistance will be handled by an experienced publisher.

Speaking about the new partnership, Owlcat Studio Head Oleg Shpilchevsky said working with Deep Silver will allow the team to “reach out to the maximum number of players across the globe, making [the] brand easily accessible, maintaining quality and doing right by the fanbase.” He also hinted that the team has “ambitious plans” for the game.

To date, the team has not confirmed the production of post-release content, though one of the most recent Kickstarter updates for the title suggested that Owlcat “need[s] to consider it” in light of frequent fan queries. The same post revealed that crowdfunding would close just shy of the USD$1.1 million that would have meant Hellknights are included as a playable class.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker is an adaptation of the Pathfinder tabletop RPG first published in the late 200os. Although in many respects a fairly traditional isometric CRPG following in the footsteps of Baldur’s Gate and the original Fallout, Pathfinder: Kingmaker adds a robust kingdom building system to the formula.

The game was originally set to release in August 2018 exclusively for PC, but whether it is still on track for the date is uncertain.
