Pathfinder: Kingmaker is an isometric role-playing game like Baldur’s Gate and Pillars of Eternity. In this masterpiece, we guide a hero and his up to five companions through the Stolen Lands, part of the Pathfinder world of Golarion. The basis is laid by the Pen & Paper ruleset Pathfinder, which itself is based on Dungeons & Dragons. There are different campaigns for Pathfinder and the campaign “Kingmaker” serves as a template for the computer role-playing game (CRPG).
Pathfinder: Kingmaker puts us in charge of a barony (see also our guide to Kingdom and Advisors in Pathfinder: Kingmaker). In addition to our adventures in different levels of the gigantic world map, we have to manage the kingdom. This works via separate menus and barony stats, which we have to keep track of and, if necessary, upgrade. Advisors play an important role here: they do a lot of work for us, but act according to individual philosophies and opinions that can collide with our own views.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker offers an extensive story spread over seven different acts and a playing time of at least 80 hours.
If you love the Baldurs Gate saga, are into games like Pillars of Eternity or Divinity Original Sin and have no problem getting used to complex game mechanics, you should definitely play Pathfinder: Kingmaker. In our own game we were especially impressed by the excellent story, the enormously deep gameplay and the sheer size of the game world.
