Unwritten Reaches Kickstarter Goal!

Unwritten, the game I featured earlier as being a randomly generated strategy roguelike game following the fortunes of a tribe on a pilgrimage to meet its god – has reached the full Kickstarter funding. That means Unwritten will be made, and as one of the people who came before, I’ll be enjoying their tasty beta, estimated delivery June this year.

This is an exciting game because of the core mechanic – the notion that decisions should be permanent, and impact the entirety of the game. It was a principle that played out somewhat in Dishonored, but it will be at the very core of Unwritten. Everything you do will matter in a very deep way, which is exciting because it solves my main gripe with games like Skyrim. That gripe being the fact that you can put down a vampire king, absorb the souls of dragons and overturn the Imperial occupiers and you’ll still have guards mocking you about your lack of sweet rolls. In Skyrim you can do anything at all – and none of it matters in the slightest.

In Unwritten, every decision will not only affect the game in the moment, it will change the shape of history itself.

A randomly generated strategy game in which every single decision you make has an impact on the world in which the game is played, Unwritten is a game that has you build a tribe and lead them through a promised land to meet their god. Created with the same game ethos that made Dishonored an instant classic, Unwritten leaves the fate of everything in the world to the player. Death is permanent, your every choice matters and sometimes there’s no way tell what effects your decisions might have down the track.

Unwritten will be a highly moddable game with developer tools released with it so that interested players wil be able to bend and shape worlds to their own will. This isn’t just a world building game, it is the telling of a deep story, generated anew every time. The force that ultimately shapes your tale is you.
