The individuals who participated in the Kickstarter project for its funding, are able to recruit a special character, whereas buyers of the regular version are not being able to do so.

Gameplay[]

The gameplay involves exploring uncharted lands, with the amount of movement each day being determined by the logistics score and the difficulty of the terrain. Logistics, along with diplomacy, healing, leadership, tactics and survivability, are determined by the player skills and the group composition. At the end of a day, the player character must make a camp, with the available resources and threaths determined by the type of terrain. The player can interact with objects on the map, along with building of towns or villages. The player completes goals (near the same as quests) either through dialogue or through combat.

When it comes to combat, the player character does not participate personally. Instead, the player picks up to six party members, from five different Classes, with differences in abilities for the Spanish members and the Native members. The combat is turn-based combat, with each members from a group being able to move and perform action on a hex grid. During preparation phase, the player is being to select starting positions for combats and use utility items selected before battle.

Their skill are improved by spending Experience points on higher ranks, which unlocks a new ability, improves statistics, increased equipment slots and allows the player to pick a Passive skill of choice.
