Former CCP Staffers Found  Pathfinder Online  Studio

Former CCP Staffers Found Pathfinder Online Studio

November 23, 2011 | By Mike Rose

Ryan Dancey, formerly CMO at Eve Online developer CCP Games, has launched a new development studio that is currently developing an MMO based on the Pathfinder tabletop roleplaying game.

Goblinworks currently consists of Dancey, Paizo Publishing CEO Lisa Stevens, and Mark Kalmes, previously a programmer for Microsoft, Cryptic Studios and CCP.

Pathfinder Online aims to bringing the world of the tabletop game, originally released in 2009, to the video game industry in the form of a sandbox-style MMORPG, with players exploring the River Kingdoms.

Players will be able to buy and sell user-created items and content, while building up their own settlements in the world and then taking on NPCs and other players in battle.

Stevens explained, "A lot of big picture work has already been done on Pathfinder Online, and it's going to be a bit different from your traditional fantasy MMO."

"It's going to focus around the characters you create, in a world that will grow out of your interactions, developing the way you choose to develop it."
