Project Eternity

Post by Gorth » Sat Sep 15, 2012 11:28 am

Shameless plug!

Just thought I would mention Obsidians new project, going "old school" to some degree with Project Eternity

Project Eternity

2D backgrounds, isometric perspective, RTwP combat. What's not to at least make one curious (and I already pledged enough to get some goodies)?

Kickstarter does seem to be the way to go to get "good" games as opposed to the soulless games churned out by the bigger developers.

I'd read a bit about this the other day on another site, where it was speculated that it would be a spiritual, if not direct, successor to Torment. That piqued my interest. However the images in that article make it look more like BG:TotSC, which doesn't get me all hot and bothered.

That promises a lot but explains very little. I'm not a big fan of kickstarter to begin with either.

I can understand why Kickstarter exists and think it's a great idea. Of course, I'd only contribute to something I'm seriously interested in.

I can see why it exists, but its hard to justify buying something that doesn't exist yet. If it was an investment (as in you got back what you paid into it potentially after it was created and sold) then maybe...

Arghh... the Obsidian forums "exploded" several times over the last few days, caving in under the strain. Hopefully the move to beefier servers today will keep them running. Somebody (Obsidian) got really caught with their pants down, underestimating the interest it would generate.

$4.1+ million actually when you add the PayPal pledges :)

Do the paypal pledges count for meeting the 4 million goal?

Honestly I didnt think it would make more than 2.5 million. Pretty impressive I think.

Yup, PayPal counts. It's there for a number of people who for various reasons don't have credit cards. The number of PayPal backers also counts for adding levels to the "Mega Dungeon" (sort of a "King Sizes Durlags Tower"). The poor artist doing the concept for the dungeon on the page couldn't keep up at all towards the end when it reached double digit levels.

Glad to hear they did so well. I'd have contributed but the Missus would have likely killed me. She doesn't really get gaming. Just tolerates it.
