The Fantasy RPG Is Planned to Launch in Q1 2020

A Kickstarter campaign for the party-based fantasy RPG The Waylanders was officially announced on Tuesday with a fundraising goal of $150,000. A gameplay trailer that explains the game’s mechanics can be viewed below.

The Waylanders is being developed by a Spanish indie studio named Gato Salvaje and it has former BioWare developer Mike Laidlaw acting as a creative consultant (along with several other “high profile writers” that haven’t been revealed yet).

The upcoming RPG has a time travel feature that involves two different eras, Celtic and Medieval. The choices made in one era can effect the world of the other time period and players “will feel the impact of their decisions in surprising and shocking ways,” according to an official press release.
