Way back in January 2019, it was reported that a group of former Infinity Ward developers had formed an indie studio called Winterborn for the purpose of developing a tactical RPG based on the studio head's homebrew tabletop setting. What kind of RPG would a bunch of ex-Call of Duty guys create? The answer it turns out is a cartoony turn-based tactical RPG inspired by Japanese SRPGs and featuring CYOA sequences. Its title is Externus: Path of the Solari and it was announced last month, properly revealed last week, and today it's on Kickstarter. The full reveal trailer is also the pitch video:
