SAN FRANCISCO — Tabletop RPG fans are probably never going to settle the question of whether Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder is the superior system. But when it comes to video games, there’s no denying that Pathfinder feels a little underrepresented, with a grand total of one digital title to its name (based on its card game spinoff, at that).

With Pathfinder: Kingmaker, due out this summer, the setting finally seems poised to make a big splash on the computer RPG scene. This retro adventure, reminiscent of Baldur’s Gate and the other Infinity Engine titles, nevertheless has at least one very original idea up its sleeve. While the bulk of the game looks like a classic role-playing adventure — delving into dungeons, recruiting companions, forging a narrative through dialogue, and so forth — the game will also make good on its name, by giving you an entire kingdom to rule as you see fit.
