According to the press release by Worldwalker, Wildermyth is a party-based RPG where pivotal combat decisions and story-driven decisions will further the plot of the game in very specific directions. "The game follows heroes over their whole careers, from their pitchfork days to their powerful primes, and on into old age and memory," and characters from previous plotlines can show up in the game as "legacy" characters.

According to Worldwalker Games, Wildermyth started out as a side project similar to X-COM, but with a whimsical fantasy setting, but soon blossomed into a full-fledged indie game. There is extensive character development in the game and the propensity for your characters to become mythical legendary figures is great.
