That means a new RPG system, entirely new art, new characters and animation and whole lot of lore and dialogue.



BGEE, Project Eternity....guys, I think we just became a target audience. :P

Very interesting. Very ambitious, and risky all around. Since it's Obsidian, I can't bring myself to get excited that it'll end well, but if they pull it off, I'd play it.

Interviews with Feargus and Chris are up on Gamebanshee and Kotaku

I'm tired of designing content and interactions that caters to consoles and console controllers.

No one is going to give a company a million dollars to make an isometric game.

I wish that was true but they are at 300k already, which is insane.

I seriously didn't waint it to end like this, I'm super bummed out right now :(

*cough* Wasteland 2 *cough*

I don't give a damn about graphics, my most favorite games are BG, Might & Magic, Fallout 2, HoMM3 and Diablo 2. I utterly fail to comprehend how some people manage spot a difference between 2004 graphics and 2010 ones - they all look the same to me.

Holy hell, it was at 100k just a little over an hour ago. :o

Sorry I should be more specific. I mean big publishers/game corporations with money. Not crowd sourcing. My bad. :)

EA for instance. Or Activision. That sort of thing.

Yeah I agree completely

I mean, none of those is BG, which is literally the best and prettiest game that ever graced our unworthy lives

Considering that there have been literally three* good western RPGs since the last Infinity Engine games, I'm not surprised this attracted so much attention.

Knew they were thinking about a Kickstarter, but I didn't even dare to think that this countdown might be leading to it (my thoughts were worst case: another Dungeon Siege, most likely: Wheel of Time, most wanted but highly unlikely: Kickstarter).

So a new Obsidian isometric fantasy game with Avellone involved in it? There is no way I can resist backing this.

Looks like they've put a bit of work into preparing this too with the map and visual reward tiers etc.
I scribble and I chirp, wait no. I mean tweet (infrequently). And sometimes I tumble about as well.

Currently $915,985, yikes!

Would you pay $1000+ to design some in-game content? I am somewhat skeptical that being affluent means they also have the ability to design a part of the game that will ship.

I would totally pay 1000$ to do something like that if I had the cash. In fact, if I had enough money to spare, I would make sure every game project got funded, but with some crude goatse humor added

e: But I think people who pledge 10000$ are people like Snoop Dogg or Matthew Perry

Funding successful, in just over one day!

Awesome stuff. If they include some decent stretch goals (i.e. a modding toolkit) they have a good chance of surpassing Wasteland2.

Splendid. Backed it for 160$.

Funding right now: 1,110,595 / 1,100,000

It's there already... excellent. Project Eternity is a go.
