Dragon Age Inspired ‘The Waylanders’ Crushes Kickstarter Goal

Fans of Dragon Age were in for a surprise when Mike Laidlaw announced his involvement with an independent video game studio called Gato Salvaje. Inspired by the aforementioned universe, this Spanish developing studio is determined to bring a high fantasy universe complete with strategy-based combat system, surreal environments, and Celtic folklore. It’s an entirely new and imaginative world.

Despite the phenomenal team tackling this party-based RPG with such names as Mike Laidlaw as a creative consultant, it comes as no surprise that it has far exceeded its Kickstarter goal. Sitting at almost $170,000 in funds from 3,362 backers, this incredible feat was accomplished with the help of fans and hopefuls!
