Kingdom Come: Deliverance up on Kickstarter, “No Magic or Dragons” I can get behind

Jan 22, 2014

I’m not one to constantly post about every Kickstarter, but there are some that truly stick out. Today Warhorse Studios launched a Kickstarter for Kingdom Come: Deliverance, a single-player RPG set in the medieval Europe, slated for a 2015 release.

Game Director and Lead Designer Dan Vávra explains: “So far US$1.5m has been invested into Kingdom Come: Deliverance, largely from a single investor outside the games industry. This is a big and expensive game, and we could hardly hope to raise the entire budget needed on Kickstarter alone. Since game publishers are not throwing money at us, we’ve made a deal with our investor: if we raise the relatively reasonable sum of US$500k, it is proof for him that the game has potential, and he would continue to finance us. Anything over the sum we’re asking for will allow us to create additional content and a better overall product.”

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an open world, action-adventure RPG developed by a veteran team composed of talent that played key roles in the MafiaCrysisArmA and Operation Flashpoint franchises. Set during the Holy Roman Empire during the late Middle Ages, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is rich with historically authentic characters, themes and warfare.
