Every adventure is unique!

The map's layout is always different, and each of the points offer players random events.

There are five story missions. However, they aren't easy to complete; each map is procedurally generated. This means that the paths and random events are always different. The events also depend on which characters you have in your party. The only parts of the map that never change are the starting point and the distance from the goal.

Is Pathway a difficult game?

Is Pathway a difficult game - Pathway Guide and Tips

Is Pathway a difficult game? - technically, yes, Pathway can be quite challenging for people who aren't accustomed to this genre. The main causes of the difficulty of this game are the limited number of medkits as well as the small amount of health and armor of your characters; the key to winning is to avoid as much damage as possible. Given the random nature of the map, there may also be problems with supplies or unexpected fights - you should be prepared for anything. If you like a challenge, the game offers the option to increase the difficulty level for each mission, reducing the starting supplies, and the ability to customize the attack power and endurance of your opponents.

Does Pathway feature crafting?

Pathway doesn't have the option to craft items. This can be confusing since one of the achievements in the game is called Tinker, and the game has items that seem useful in crafting. All items that aren't weapons, ammo, armor, fuel or medkits/repair kits are moved to Valuables. Their only purpose is to be sold - they provide you with gold you can spend on new items useful in your future adventures.

How much do I need to complete Pathway?

Due to its procedurally generated content, Pathway can take a lot of time to complete, even for experienced players. One of the main reasons is how much exploration you do and how much time you spend on fights. Don't let the first journey confuse you: the first mission is rather short since you are moving on a single map. The next missions will take place on several maps. To complete the game, you will need about 10-20 hours.

Pathway
  • genre: RPG

  • developer: Robotality
  • publisher: Chucklefish
  • platform: PC

Pathway is a tactical turn-based RPG developed by the creators of Halfway. The story in Pathway is set in the 1930s and revolves around powerful ancient artifacts. The Nazis search for them, trying to beat the private collectors’ associations to it.

The story in the game starts in 1936 and revolves around the search of powerful ancient artifacts, which begin to appear more and more often on the black market all over the world. The Nazis search for these artifacts, trying to beat private collectors to it. The Nazis search mainly for the substance known as Valkyrium-500, essential for the secret Valhalla Project, but they will be more than happy to loot some other treasures. The agents of the Third Reich, however, are not the only ones looking for these relics – various associations comprising of private collectors decide to find the artifacts themselves. In the story campaign, a player controls a group of Lankford & Co employees, who’s main objective is to retrieve the powerful relics before they fall into the Nazis’ hands.

When creating Pathway, the developers drew their inspirations from the esthetics of the pulp fiction genre – detective novels printed tabloids and popular in the United Stated in the 1930s’; the same ones that inspired Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.

The PC release of Pathway is a tactical RPG, in which a player gets to control a group of eccentric characters, who carry out missions in the ancient civilizations’ ruins, tombs filled with traps and monsters, and even Wehrmacht strongholds.

Most of these missions offer players freedom in the exploration of vast locations; however, they also require a player to fight many battles using the turn-based combat system. Players have to utilize characters’ abilities and take cover behind the elements of the environment. In between the missions, one gets to the base in which he can manage his team, talk to NPCs and makes story-related decisions. The game also features the character development mechanics, which allow players to acquire new skills and upgrade the old ones.

The creators of Pathway decided to implement the pixel art style; nonetheless, the technological layer of the game is interesting. All levels are procedurally generated, and the graphics engine combines 2D pixels with voxels, which allowed the developers to enrich the old-school graphics with modern visual effects, such as dynamic lighting. The game also features a soundtrack written by Gavin Harrison, the same man who produced the OST of the previous game by Robotality.
