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).
