Kingdom Come: Deliverance - News Roundup

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-23 04:23:29

Well consider this the first news roundup for Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The game is already half funded in just one day. Not bad at all so lets get started.

Up first I have a new preview with more information on the game from Eurogamer.

Daniel Vavra sits before me, not as menacing as I had once feared (look at the company picture on the Warhorse website - he's the one with the beard and the bull terrier), wearing that DayZ T-Shirt, reminding me of the growing number of success stories coming from Eastern Europe (and not just Prague). These are cultures that see games and genres in different ways, and build them on different foundations and values. The Witcher series, developed in neighbouring Poland, is celebrated far and wide, and what Kingdom Come: Deliverance now wants to do is show us what it was like to be a knight in medieval Europe, with all the muck and dirt thrown in. And I want to go there.

"We think books and movies have changed a little bit, that people have grown up and heroes have evolved with them." Look at Batman now, Vavra says, or our action heroes or our fantasy fiction. "Everything's more mature, there is more depth to it, more authenticity. But most of the games are still in their adolescence, and we would like to change that."

There's a new wind blowing and it's not from the West, not far from the East. It smells different - it smells exciting.

Next I have a new video trailer which looks to be cut from the pitch video.

And for last I have some screenshots on our game gallery. Now after all this and you  still haven't backed the game yet what are you waiting for? Here is the link once again.
