Kickstarter project aims to fund ‘realistic’ medieval RPG for Xbox One, PS4

Mafia developer Daniel Vávra and Warhorse Studios have taken to Kickstarter to raise funds, and gage gamer enthusiasm, for an Xbox One and PS4 tmedieval RPG title called Kingdom Come: Deliverance, according to a report today from GameSpot.

The campaign is asking for 300,000 pounds ($497,430) to complete the game with the aim to launch by 2015 for PC, Linux, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, of which the project put 36,000 pounds ($59,691) toward its goal.

However, Vávra said that the campaign is not only just to raise the additional funds to create the game but also to show its main investor that a game like this has the support of the gaming community.

Warhorse already has one significant investor who has put $1.5 million into the project already but doesn’t know the video game industry very well and needs a show of faith among potential consumers.

"Should our Kickstarter campaign fail, it will mean that we were wrong, that there is no interest to play a game with the atmosphere of Braveheart, and that we will have to start considering working on some mobile MMO, because that's where the money is these days (or so everybody tells us)," Vávra said. "We are, however, positive that our instincts are right.”

Vávra likened the game to the Mel Gibson flick to demonstrate it doesn’t feature any fantasy elements to the game, or how he described it, “Dungeons & no Dragons.”

“Think of it as Braveheart: The Game,” Vávra said. “Majestic castles, armored knights, large, open field battles, and political intrigue set in a vast, emergent world.”

Vávra described what they’re attempting to develop as a mix of the “freedom and mechanics of Skyrim, the setting of Mount and Blade, the storytelling styles of The Witcher and Red Dead Redemption, and the tough combat dynamics of Dark Souls into a single, gorgeous package.”
