First deets on Witcher developer Tomasz Gop’s new RPG

A few details on the project that Tomasz Gop, who left The Witcher developer CD Projekt in June last year, is working on have surfaced.

Currently called Project RPG, the undertaking is in the works at German development studio Deck13, due to be published by growing force City Interactive.

The game is still early in development — it’s said to be entering the prototyping phase — but it can be shared that it’ll focus on player skill and has a story that mirrors the player’s actions and play style.

The premise is an interesting one; the RPG takes place 1,000 years after the death of a God whose corpse is a mountain that splits the world into distinct sides, each with their own philosophy. The player will be forced to choose their allegiance early in the game.

The combat will be simple but deep, and is compared to the likes of Dark Souls and Kingdoms of Amalur, with enemies that will be recognizable by their behavior and fighting styles, rather than looks.

Sounds intriguing enough, yeah?

The game’s targeting a 2013 release on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
