Owlcat Games is best known for their work on the Pathfinder series, which are role-playing games inspired by classic computer RPGs such as Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights. Their most recent game, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, received plenty of praise, as critics noted it was much better than its predecessor.
