    The Pathfinder: Kingmaker beta has been running for the past week and a half. There's no NDA this time and gameplay videos are plentiful. Here's a Let's Play series by the Codex's own sstacks:


    Impressions of the beta have been positive, and it looks like it's attracted enough attention to the game that Owlcat have finally unlocked their next stretch goal, having reached $1M of funding via preorders. Yes, they're still doing those! In case you've forgotten, the new race stretch goal was originally announced at the end of the Kickstarter campaign last July. And like they said back then, it's up to backers to decide what race will be added. The Kickstarter update explains:

    When our Kickstarter campaign ended, we promised that all funds generated by pre-orders and pledge upgrades on https://owlcatgames.com/preorder would go towards unlocking new stretchgoals. And we are happy to announce that the next milestone, a crowdfunding sum of over $1 million, has been reached thanks to your generous help and support! Thank you so much for believing in us!

    Our exact crowdfunding sum is now at $1.026.681

    This means that we now have the resources to add one more playable race to Pathfinder: Kingmaker. And you get to help us decide which race it's going to be! We have opened a poll on our forums, where all backers get to vote for one of three possible new races. The three options are as follows:

    1. Aasimar
    2. Dhampir
    3. Elemental*

    *Humans, whose family trees include elemental beings. If elementals win the vote, we will add playable Sylphs, Undines, Ifrits and Oreads.

    You can vote right now by visiting this thread on our dev forums:

    https://owlcatgames.com/forums/showthread.php?4221-The-Extra-Race-Poll

    Please note - you can only see this thread if you have transferred your Kickstarter pledge to our backer portal or if you are a preorder backer. If you need help transferring your pledge, send a message to team@owlcatgames.com

    Thank you once again for making this possible! And who knows - perhaps we can even reach the next milestone of $1.1 million and unlock a new playable class - Hellknights.
    If you like what you see and want to help Owlcat reach that last goal, Pathfinder: Kingmaker is available for preorder here.

    Will I, as a Human Male Inquisitor, get to make sweet love to my Elemental Bard husband in this game? If not I'm not sure i can play it.

    I guess video games are the ones who really treat dhampyrs as bastards, after all.

    That's alright, I always found the elementals in NWN2 to be among the most boring races. Only half-elfs were worse.

    Half-elves boring? Well, in NWN and 3.5, yeah, they just suck compared to everyone else. But in Pathfinder (and later D&D) they are much better.

    Is the Pathfinder tabletop more popular than DnD this point?

    Maybe if 5th edition didn't exist that would've been the case.

    Any estimates on when the game is supposedly released? Q3 or Q4 this year?
    So far it looks much more interesting than Deadfire.

    No. D&D 5e market share is $20,000,000, Pathfinder is $10,000,000.

    D&D 5e brought a whole new slew of people into tabletop gaming while Pathfinder consists of 3.5 veterans who will never renounce its systems.

    Pretty good.
    I want Nyanta or some cool undead like Vampire Lord or some Insectoid race with 4 arms and affinity to psychic caster classes.

    I was hoping the edgy Dhampirs would win, I was planning on picking it for my evil playthrough.

    To be fair it was more popular for years while D&D owners thought 4e was actually good LOL

    This game gave me huge hopes since I found out about Dex on it. It may end up as being really good, decent or just plainly bad, but for sure, it is interesting concept. Nothing more then hope (just a little bit) and wait until it gets out.

    Also wait, there is Inquisitor class? Who would expect that? I know what I will play, then, on first run.
