Owlcat Games has announced that their current Kickstarter campaign for Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous has reached $1 million after only eight days. Similarly, PlatinumGames has announced that The Wonderful 101: Remastered has surpassed $1.5 million.
Since Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous broke its $1 million goal, it will also feature a turn-based mode. According to the team, this mode has been one the most demanded features requested by the community. Although the game is designed and balanced with RTWP (real-time with pause), the team will develop a turn-based mode to reinforce the tabletop immersion. This mode will give players the option to experience a play session almost identical to the tabletop version. They will be able to switch modes back and forth on the fly, without the need for reloading location. The team will reveal more info on the turn-based mode at a later date.
Oleg Shpilchevskiy, Head of Studio, said:
“We want to thank the mod community for all the work they did with Pathfinder: Kingmaker. We took inspiration from Hsunyu’s modification, which added a turn-based mode to the game. The players liked it so much that with the launch of the Kickstarter campaign, we have received a large number of messages from the community eager to play Wrath of the Righteous with TBM. In fact, we have been working on it for quite some time. Thus, the plan was to announce it later once a demo was going to be playable. But with all the enthusiasm in the community, we decided to share it now. Our focus remains the same; the new game is designed to be played in real-time with pause, but if you want to go turn-based, you will have such an option.”
On the other hand, The Wonderful 101: Remastered will now feature a brand new 2D side scrolling adventure. At $1.75 million, the team will also remix the game’s soundtrack.
