Top-down, RPG spinnin’
I’ve had to legally change my name to “Contests.” Today we’re got Pathfinder: Kingmaker up for grabs!
Maybe you first heard of Pathfinder: Kingmaker from following the career of Chris Avellone, famed CRPG pioneer and games developer. Or maybe you saw it on Kickstarter and thought the idea of a video game based off of a tabletop game was a badass idea. Or maybe, like me, you first heard about it when you read CJ “The Human Torch But Only The Part Where He’s Flaming” Andriessen’s hands-on preview.
However you may be familiar with it, drop your name in the bucket for a chance to win your free copy of Owlcat’s Pathfinder: Kingmaker!
I’m not nearly smart enough to begin to describe what’s going on here, so I’ll let Owlcat Games take over:
Pathfinder: Kingmaker is the first single-player isometric CRPG set in the world of a top-selling D&D type role-playing game by Paizo. Being a tribute to such classics as Baldur’s Gate, it brings back memories of beloved gameplay mechanics and embarks the player on a hand-crafted, story-driven adventure. Become introduced to the rich universe of Pathfinder as a newcomer or explore famous locations familiar to any fan of the original tabletop game. Establish your kingdom to bring peace, hope, and prosperity to the land or take everything for yourself and drive it into darkness.
Recruit up to 11 companions, with extensive backgrounds and their own opinion on your actions. Customize them with a multitude of options available to make your party capable of overcoming insurmountable challenges. Embrace your relationship with other characters to uncover their personal quests and new depths of the story.
- 7 core races and 14 different classes, each with up to 3 different archetypes, with the option to customize characters adjusted to your playstyle
- Gameplay and atmosphere inspired by unforgettable classics like Baldur’s Gate
- Kingdom development, including the ability to shape the world with decisions made either as a wise and righteous king or as an evil tyrant
- A dynamic world with highly detailed locations to explore, day-night cycle, changing seasons and weather system
Look, all’s I know is I saw a bear fighting a dragon ,so I’m pretty much sold.
To enter for your chance to win, comment below telling us your first order of business as the new King of the realm. Immediately upon sitting upon my throne, I’d declare jorts illegal, and anyone in possession of them would be thrown into a pit full of snakes, spiders and other icky stuff. My realm may not be the most successful or prosperous or attract any vacationers, but at least we have some modicum of decency.
We have 10 Steam keys to give out. Winners will be randomly drawn on Friday, October 5. Make sure you comment using a Dtoid account that has your current email address on file. If I can’t email you, I’m going to have to assume you’re wearing jorts — then it’s the Icky Pit for ye.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker is available now on Steam.
