Chucklefish is publishing Pathway, an Indiana Jones-esque adventure featuring story events and turn-based combat. Here’s some new gameplay footage.
It doesn’t look like we’re going to get any Indiana Jones games from Disney anytime soon. Heck, we’ve barely been getting any Star Wars games, for that matter. But where the biggies drop the ball, the indies are sure to pick it up. Pathway is pretty much the Raiders of the Lost Ark simulator you always asked for.
The year is 1936. Nazis are conducting occult research in Middle-Eastern ruins, and your buddy Morten has been kidnapped by them. It’s time to save him!
Pathway features 5 different campaigns, and each campaign has procedurally generated maps and unique story events. Apart from making important story decisions, you’ll also be engaging in turn-based combat against the Nazis.
Have a look at the new, 10-minute gameplay footage below. It features one of the campaigns of the game, titled “Wrath of God”.
Pathway is being developed by German developer Robotality, and it’s being published by Chucklefish. The latter you might know for developing Starbound and Wargroove, as well as publishing Stardew Valley.
Robotality has previously developed the sci-fi strategy game Halfway (notice the theme?), which was also published by Chucklefish in 2014. What other games could this duo have planned? Midway? Highway? Stay’way? The possibilities are (not) endless!
While there’s no release date for the game just yet, it is aiming for a 2019 release. The only confirmed platforms so far are PC, Mac, and Linux.
