Default Starfinder?

March 10th, 2021, 17:58
Let's throw a bit of rumour

That's the tweet Owlcat Games just posted:



As a reminder, end of July 2020, someone had spotted a job offer in Russian on Twitter, that roughly translates to "Owlcat Games (creators of Pathfinder: Kingmaker and Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous) are looking for Lead / Senior 3d Environment Artist for a new unannounced project (turn-based CRPG in a sci-fi setting) - a leading 3d environment artist," which has led to some speculation since Starfinder is the other Paizo's product, the sci-fi counterpart to Pathfinder.

This looks like a confirmation of what's cooking next, hopefully they'll elaborate soon.

If that's true, I find it quite exciting. Even though the Pathfinder lore and setting is very interesting and I wouldn't mind a 3rd game there, this change would be refreshing. On the other hand, that may not please everyone, and there is the concern that it could imply a lot of extra development due to the new setting.

The prospect of a game that would be designed as turn-based from the ground up is probably what's most exciting about this prospect for me.

Maybe they're big enough to handle both?

Me and a few people I know would be up for a well done Starfinder game, definitely.

Pff…posted this rumor already last year. Glad to see some more news at least.

Anyway back then I claimed it would be Starfinder due to the rule-set being close to Pathfinder, and that's it's another IP owned by paizo. They are also pleased with OwlCat.

The fact it's turn-cased doesn't bother me either as I love Sc-Fi RPGs.

That would also make sense
Well, except this job ad, but that could be something else entirely, or even something they cancelled.

Wait and see, I suppose.

Just a 'what if' video, nothing substantial. @Couchpotato, hopefully Owlcat Games will watch this and get the hint

Nice find I wonder why they officially haven't announced anything yet? Maybe Wrath of the Righteous took longer to finish then they thought? Well we'll see as the saying goes.

That Pathfinder theory does make sense as there is an area in the setting called Numeria were a spaceship crashed. It has warlords, barbarians, and advanced tech.
