Kickstarter Check-In: The Waylanders
Developer Gato Salvaje Studio has begun a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for its fantasy RPG The Waylanders. A party-based RPG drawing inspiration from Dragon Age: Origins, Neverwinter Nights 2, and Baldur’s Gate, The Waylanders looks to combine a setting based on Medieval and Celtic elements with real-time-with-pause combat akin to classic cRPGs. Mike Laidlaw (formerly of BioWare) is collaborating on the game as Narrative and Creative Consultant.
Players control a party of five adventurers, choosing from four races, six base classes, and thirty advanced classes, with over 800 skills and twelve different formations at their disposal. The party travels in time between two different eras, with the maps featuring the same land layout but vastly different locations and settlements as different civilisations come to the fore in each era.
Gato Salvaje Studio is looking for $150,000 in funding by November 16, 2018. Those who pledge at least $25 will receive a digital copy of the game as part of their backer rewards. The Waylanders is currently being developed for PC, with a planned release window of Q1 2020.
