Deathfire: Ruins of Nethermore cRPG kickstarter receives a new pitch video

Tuesday, 26 November 2013

Ten more days to go until the closure of kickstarter campaign, Guido Henkel's (Realms of Arkania (Das Schwarze Auge), Planescape: Torment, Fallout 2) and Marian Arnold's (Divine Divinity) upcoming-if-funded computer role-playing game Deathfire: Ruins of Nethermore received a new "pitch video" today for the campaign. Anyone who isn't yet familiar with the game yet, or is still considering to back it, should check the new pitch video out at Deathfire kickstarter page! The game is also up for voting at Steam Greenlight, 73% of the way to the Top 100, so you can check it out on Steam Community as well and vote for the game.




For those who don't know, Deathfire will be first-person party-based fantasy role-playing game for PC with Windows or Linux, and Mac OSX, featuring a single-player campaign with deep story, and hearkening back to the nineties and late-eighties computer role-playing games, such as Might & Magic, Wizardry, Realms of Arkania: Shadows Over Riva and such - or reminding a bit of the newer one, Grimrock, with a difference, that Deathfire won't be only a dungeon-crawler, but it will mix dungeon-areas with outside areas, too, to offer bit more exploration and environmental variation.

If you're just tired of level-grinding monsters in today's computer role-playing games, without narrative edge of things, interactive party, and a good story, then this is a game which should definitely deserve a few minutes of your time!

The campaign has currently 3000 backers with 10 days to go, which in my opinion is criminally low amount for a solid pitch, with great ideas, so give Guido Henkel and Marian Arnold some help and check their project out! This is a game that has to be made, to be one of the upcoming greats along with: Wasteland 2, Project Eternity, and Torment: Tides of Numenera (and it should appeal also to fans of those games).
