FAQ

Q: Are pre-order funds going towards the funding of sctretch goals?

A: Yes! All funds gathered during our crowdfunding campaign, be it via Kickstarter or the backer portal, will be used for the development of Pathfinder: Kingmaker and will be counted to unlock stretch goals.


Q: Why is the backer portal using the term 'pre-order' instead of 'pledge'?

A: Unlike making a pledge on Kickstarter, supporting us on the backer portal via PayPal or PSC means your money is transferred immediately. Legally, this is considered a pre-order, because you don't just pledge to support us - you pay right away.


Q: I have made a pledge that includes boxed edition of the game that have to be delivered. Can I still play the game from Day 1?

A: Purchases of the physical box copy will receive their digital access code both in the box and within an e-mail on release day (it is the same code). You can download your digital copy of the game and start playing as soon as the game is available.


Q: I want the boxed edition but I have no intention of unwrapping it. Can I still play the game?

A: Purchases of the physical box copy will receive their digital access code both in the box and within an e-mail on release day (it is the same code). You will not have to open the box at all just to play the game.


Q: How do I choose the size of T-shirt, hoodie, or any other stuff that should be sized up?

A: You will get an e-mail with a link to the Pathfinder: Kingmaker backer portal when the campaign is over. On the site, you will be able to confirm your pledge and customize your options, like sizes, for any reward you have chosen.


Q: Where do I choose Steam, GoG or game portal download?

A: You will get an e-mail with a link to the Pathfinder: Kingmaker backer portal when the campaign is over. On the site, you will be able to confirm your pledge and choose on which platform you would like to get Pathfinder: Kingmaker.
