Press Release From Goblinworks
Goblinworks Announces the Pathfinder Online Technology Demo Kickstarter Project
Thornkeep RPG book by Rich Baker is part of the Kickstarter
Goblinworks Inc. is proud to announce our first Kickstarter project for the Pathfinder Online MMORPG. The Pathfinder Online Technology Demo Kickstarter will help Goblinworks finance the creation of a Technology Demo that we can use to show investors what Pathfinder Online will look like. Successful funding of this Kickstarter will also demonstrate the community’s desire and excitement for Pathfinder Online.
In addition to an exclusive long video of the Technology Demo, the main reward for the Kickstarter Project is a 64-page book called Thornkeep. The first 32 pages comprise a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game sourcebook for Thornkeep, one of the three starting locations in the Pathfinder Online MMO. This section is written by veteran RPG designer Rich Baker. The second 32 pages are written by the Goblinworks staff and will provide readers with a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Pathfinder Online.
There are a variety of rewards available to backers who pledge from $5 to $5,000, ensuring that there is a reward level suitable for any pocketbook.
“With the recent success of Kickstarters funding several computer game projects, our team felt that it was the ideal medium to provide funding for our Pathfinder Online Technology Demo,” said Goblinworks CEO Ryan S. Dancey. “Through the success of this Kickstarter, we will be able to prove to the world that there is a pent-up demand for a fantasy sandbox MMO set in the Pathfinder world of Golarion. Our community is our strongest asset, and we plan to show the world just how great the Pathfinder community really is.”
The Pathfinder Online Technology Demo Kickstarter will run for 30 days, from May 9 to June 8, 2012.
