quote:

Obsidian Entertainment and our legendary game designers Chris Avellone, Tim Cain, and Josh Sawyer are excited to bring you a new role-playing game for the PC. Project Eternity (working title) pays homage to the great Infinity Engine games of years past: Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment.


Project Eternity aims to recapture the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia of classic RPGs that we enjoyed making - and playing. At Obsidian, we have the people responsible for many of those classic games and we want to bring those games back… and that’s why we’re here - we need your help to make it a reality!


quote:

Project Eternity will take the central hero, memorable companions and the epic exploration of Baldur’s Gate, add in the fun, intense combat and dungeon diving of Icewind Dale, and tie it all together with the emotional writing and mature thematic exploration of Planescape: Torment.

Combat uses a tactical real-time with pause system - positioning your party and coordinating attacks and abilities is one of the keys to success. The world map is dotted with unique locations and wilderness ripe for exploration and questing. You’ll create your own character and collect companions along the way – taking him or her not just through this story, but, with your continued support, through future adventures. You will engage in dialogues that are deep, and offer many choices to determine the fate of you and your party. …and you'll experience a story that explores mature themes and presents you with complex, difficult choices to shape how your story plays out.

We are excited at this chance to create something new, yet reminiscent of those great games and we want you to be a part of it as well.


Released Date: April 2014.

Already raised $1.5 million in two days.

I have pledged my $25 because I'm cool and attractive to the opposite sex. You say you haven't? It's likely because you are an infidel and less appealing than a kobold. But these things are easily changed if you pledge your money!

Didn't you already post this about 2 years ago?

Not trying to be a twat here (that comes naturally) but I do recall you posting something very similar a while back.

No. Nobody knew anything about the game until a couple of days ago.

You might be confusing it with my post on the Wasteland II kickstarter: http://www.empireonline.com/forum/tm.asp?m=3360462

That's probably it.

Also, my perception of time is completely fucked.

Only six hours remaining. Get in your pledge if you haven't already!

The game has broken the previous record for most money raised by a game and is now at $3.6 million (previous was Double Fine Adventure $3.3 million).

Features to be included in the game thanks to going over the initial $1.1 million goal:

11 classes
6 races
8 companions
A huge mega dungeon of at least 10 levels (and possibly 11 or 12 by the time this is done!)
Player house
A stronghold
Two big cities

YYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally. What with Wasteland 2, XCOM and now this, it's almost as if someone out there has finally developed some common sense and realized that just because shooters sell by the millions, it doesn't mean that the old school stuff wouldn't sell at all anymore. There's still a gigantic market out there for this stuff; and I think COM will be the catalyst that kicks it all off.
