well, it’s been a long month of backing, and while i’ve kept my pledges to a low, this game is simply too good to pass up at the full physical level.
KINGDOM is a dark, generational roleplaying game, with inspirations such as DARK SOULS and MONSTER HUNTER, and i’d dare say a bit of KINGDOM DEATH: MONSTER. players take control of an entire generation each session, creating, inventing, fighting monsters, building new weapons, and eventually breeding and dying to make way for the next generation and game session. i really like generational games, as it shifts the emotional investment from the characters to the world, from the microcosmic to the macro.
i love the sketchy, unpretentious quality of the artwork, the stylization of the text and layouts, the maps of the game world. i’m already looking forward to putting together a group specifically for this game.
funding expectation: i’m sure this will fund, but with any luck they’ll hit some of their higher level stretch goals!
