A little while back we reported on the existence of The Waylanders, an ambitious indie RPG inspired by the likes of Dragon Age: Origins and Baldur's Gate as well as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The small indie team behind the project is also planning to include input from ex-BioWare creative director Mike Laidlaw, and ex-Telltale talent Emily Grace Buck.
And now the project has launched its own Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, in addition to releasing the following video showcasing pre-alpha footage of the game's deep combat system that utilises formations in a fantasy-RPG party-based setting.
One of The Waylanders’ most innovative features are formations. Formations allow you to use your party as a team, and fight with a strategic depth never seen in an RPG. Each class will have different formations to build, and each formation will have special abilities to use. The Waylanders includes more than 800 skills, 6 basic classes and 30 advanced classes. This can only be possible thanks to The Waylanders’ motion capture process, powered by Xsens technology.
It all looks and sounds promising, with The Waylanders targeting a 2020 release window.
