Kingdom Come: Deliverance developer Warhorse Studios has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund its RPG epic. The crowdfunding goal is set at 300,000 British pounds (aprox. $500K USD]. Warhorse, which was founded by Mafia 2 designer Daniel Vávra, had originally described its trials and tribulations in looking for a suitable publisher for the game when it was first announced last month.

"So far $1.5m [USD] has been invested into Kingdom Come: Deliverance, largely from a single investor outside the games industry. This is a big and expensive game, and we could hardly hope to raise the entire budget needed on Kickstarter alone," Vávra said in a press release announcing the campaign. The crowdfunding drive, Vávra revealed, ties into an agreement made for additional outside funding: "If we raise the relatively reasonable sum of US$500k, it is proof for him that the game has potential, and he would continue to finance us."

Kingdom Come is a CryEngine-powered open world, action-adventure RPG set in the "Holy Roman Empire during the Middle Ages" and features large-scale, first-person battles.

Warhorse lists PC, Mac, and Linux as primary platforms for a Q4 2015 release, with the intent to bring the game to both PS4 and Xbox One, subject to platform approvals.
