Kickstarter projects are a risky endeavor; I’ve been lucky to only be burned once in my history of crowd funding, and have enjoyed a few games thanks to the power of crowdfunding.
Thankfully, King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is coming to Kickstarter already well-funded and in development. No matter what, we’ll see a game here. What they’re approaching Kickstarter for, however, is making it better.
Also, this isn’t your classic Disney retelling.. From the Kickstarter:
King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is a Role-playing Tactical Game – a unique hybrid between turn-based tactical games (like X-Com) and traditional, character-centric RPGs.
Knight’s Tale is a modern retelling of a classic Arthurian mythology story filtered through the dark fantasy tropes, a twist on the traditional tales of chivalry.
The story campaign puts a huge emphasis on moral choices, which have significant consequences in a rogue-lite structure, adding extra tension to the tactical and management decisions.
It definitely sounds interesting. Check out the Kickstarter in the link below for more.
