Worldwalker Games, an indie developer with a big studio pedigree based in Austin, TX, has announced that their renowned storytelling RPG Wildermyth will officially launch on Steam on June 15. The game has been in Early Access since November 2019 and has garnered an “Overwhelmingly Positive” rating, with over 96% of players recommending the game.
Wildermyth is a party-based procedural storytelling RPG where tactical combat and story decisions will alter your world and reshape your cast of characters. The game follows heroes over their whole careers, from their pitchfork days to their powerful primes and on into old age and memory. Victory (or death, whichever comes first) isn’t the end. Heroes go into the player’s “Legacy,” and can show up in future playthroughs. Throughout several stories, Legacy heroes grow into larger-than-life myths.
Wildermyth’s “secret sauce” is its procedural narrative, where player choices affect the story, the characters, and the game world. Players don’t just create characters, grow them, and guide them through the ups and downs of life. With its papercraft art style, strategic turn-based tactical combat, and offbeat humor, it’s an experience, unlike most others.
“We’ve been excited and humbled by the response Wildermyth has received on Steam Early Access so far,” said Nate Austin, Co-Founder and Lead Programmer, Worldwalker Games. “We can’t wait for even more players to create their characters and take them through this really unique RPG journey of growth, love, loss, and sacrifice.”
