Critical Role is a role-playing game livestreamed on Twitch that features a host of different voice actors who are led through unique quests each week -- and has recently unveiled plans to expand on its prominent storyline, called The Legend of Vox Machina.
The team behind Critical Role aims to bring the storyline to life with animation, after they spent a total of 373 hours of gameplay crafting the original narrative. The team concluded the first season of the livestreamed version of The Legend of Vox Machina back in 2017, releasing 115 episodes for fans to enjoy.
Like the livestreamed version, the animated rendition will focus on a series of heroes who have to overcome different plights. In order to bring the characters to cartoon life, Critical Role has asked for a funding goal that will enable its team to hire more writers, animators, and broadcast the series. Already, the team has greatly exceeded its goal, bringing in over $6 million from backers in just four days.
