Gato Salvaje Studio have been hard at work preparing for the Kickstarter campaign of their upcoming Time-Travelling Fantasy RPG, The Waylanders. With former Bioware lead, Mike Laidlaw (Dragon Age: Origins, Jade Empire, Mass Effect) on board as a creative consultant as well as some other names they could not announce, they are seeking 150,000 USD to provide players with an engaging narrative with impactful, insightful character development, and unique companion romance options. Those interested in the Kickstarter can find it here.
An exciting fantasy RPG, The Waylanders showcases a unique, party-based experience that time travels between two distinct eras — Celtic and Medieval — covering a rich history that has been largely overlooked in video game lore up to this point. Choices made in one time period can have dire consequences in the other, meaning players will feel the impact of their decisions in surprising and shocking ways. One of the game’s biggest features is its new and innovative approach to battle with the inclusion of combat formations. Fusing combatants together into a combined, more powerful character offers players a deep combination of tactics when approaching conflict.
- Real-time combat with tactical pause, character creation, and 36 classes (6 basic and 30 advanced)
- Play from a top-down isometric perspective that can be shifted to a third person perspective on the fly
- Story and combat inspired by RPG classics Dragon Age and Neverwinter Nights 2
- 12 different combat formations (2 per class) sees players fuse characters to provide varied and technical combat options
