An Imaginative Papercraft World
The Yondering Lands, where the game is set, is a richly layered world populated with hand-painted 2D
characters and scenery. We’ve paid loving attention to breaking molds and exploring new ideas: no orcs,
elves, or goblins here—but watch out for the telepathic insect-dragons and the clockwork undead.
Extreme Character Depth
Each of your heroes has their own unique generated history, personality, and appearance, and will form
relationships with your other heroes. All of these elements change and develop over the course of a
playthrough, as characters age, encounter mysteries, and overcome challenges.
Choices That Matter
Your hero may choose to trust the enigmatic wolf god, leading to a hair-raising change in their appearance
and combat abilities. Or they may pursue a romance with a fellow hero, giving each of them a shared buff and
more story opportunities. Encounters and events have permanent, character-defining effects, letting you
craft the arc of each character.
A New Approach to Death
Did your favorite character get one-shotted by a tentacled horror-bear? Choose to let a hero "fall back" with
a maiming that will lead to some transformative new paths in their legend, or let them go out in a blaze of
glory to be remembered for generations to come.
Deep and Creative Tactical Combat
Combat in Wildermyth emphasizes teamwork and careful positioning, as well as imaginative use of your evolving
capabilities and surroundings. Walling and Flanking mechanics provide clear but conflicting incentives,
while mystical interfusion lets you remake the battlefield with explosive magic. Multiple difficulty levels
mean you can get as intense as you want to.
Procedural generation gives you new heroes, new enemies, new story events, and new maps every time you play.
You’ll also select from a huge bank of combat abilities for each character, letting you invent cruel new
synergies: take position and tuck like a turtle, smash like a brute, stalk like a mountain cat, or fling
magical fire at stuff like a... a flame-dog.
A Custom Pantheon of Legends
You’ll have the freedom to customize hero appearances, names, histories, and more. As time passes, heroes
grow old and may retire, or else might fall in combat—and yes, some will survive all the way to the end. You
can add your favorite heroes to a roster of legends and call on them again in later playthroughs. Build your
own mythologies and share the awe-inspiring might of your heroes with others.
