Where They Cremate the Roadkill is an upcoming exploration RPG created by MyFormerSelves and is currently on Kickstarter. Inspired by early folktales and trickster myths, the game is "a treelike open world, Branching gradually as the player progresses every decision plays out its karma [sic]. A decision made in the early game shapes the later game in a butterfly effect..." The game will span three characters, all united by a common crisis, and each character segment has its own character-specific art style. Much like Telltale games such as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, every choice will have a lasting impact opening up different branches of the story.
Combat is in the style of a turn-based RPG, with real-time elements like in Super Mario RPG. There is a twist to combat though, as combat is illegal. By engaging in combat, you can be arrested, hunted, or even killed. Police can barricade save points, or your house can be invaded by monstrous swat teams. Killing enemies also have a lasting effect, as their friends and family can come and hunt you down. Click the jump to find out more on Where They Cremate the Roadkill!
