Obsidian’s Kickstarter Hits 1.6 Million

Obsidian’s Kickstarter endeavor dubbed Project Eternity has hit the 1.6 million dollar mark in less than 48 hours. Obsidian was asking for a Kickstarter campaign goal of 1.1 million which was surpassed in a mere 24 hours of launching the fundraising mission. This comes as no surprise to someone like myself who has been playing their amazing RPGs for nearly two decades. Project Eternity promises to go back to the developer’s roots with a new pristine top-down 2.5d intellectual property. As an avid fan of all of their games but especially their older Infinity Engine 2.5d games like Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment, I have already made my pledge and can’t wait to see what they’re going to add in the game after they reach the 2.4 million dollar mark. Obsidian is already halfway through the list of features that will be added with every $200,000 and I have no doubt that they’re going to have to add to that list of features after exceeding 2.5 million.

Have you pledged? Help out, make Project Eternity the epic RPG experience we’ve been waiting for and deserve. Here is the list of features that will be implemented with the more funds that are raised.

1.1  million, Base Goal - Achieved!

Base game includes three races, five classes, and five companions. We have ideas for these, but we want to hear your opinions on what you'd like to see. Stay tuned to Kickstarter, our website, and our forums to join in on the conversation.

1.4 million, New Playable Race, Class, and Companion! - Achieved!
Expands your options for character creation and adds a companion of the new class.

1.6 million, a Mac Version of Project Eternity and The Story Grows!
We've listened and we’ll make a Mac version of the game at this tier. We're also going to add a new major storyline along with new quests, locations, NPCs, and unique loot (special histories everyone?).

1.8 million, New Playable Race, Class, and Companion!
The options grow for your main character and the roster of your motley crew expands with the addition of a new companion from the selected class.

2.0 million, Player House!
Get your own house in the game that you can customize, store equipment in, and where your companions hang out, or, as the elves say, "chillax".

2.2 million, a new Region, a new Faction and another new Companion! And, dare we say it... ? LINUX!
Great news, everyone! For the Tarball Knights of Gzippia out there, we'll be adding Linux support!
Also, the world of Project Eternity grows in a major way with the inclusion of a whole new faction and the territory it holds. This adds new NPCs, quests, magic items, and hours of gameplay. And yes, you got it, another companion.

2.4 million and beyond! Coming soon!
