Obsidian Launches Kickstarter for “Project Eternity”
[ Gaming]

Obsidian Entertainment, the developer behind games such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, Neverwinter Nights 2, and Fallout: New Vegas, has started a Kickstarter to help raise the funds to develop a new fantasy RPG.

Obsidian claims that Project Eternity will be an isometric party-based fantasy RPG that pays homage to games such as Baldur’s Gate and Planescape: Torment. In the Kickstarter video seen below, Obsidian developers revealed that the fantasy world of the project will be a newly developed IP – and have magic, of course. They also revealed that the game will be developed with a mature audience in mind.

“I can tell you that one thing I’m looking forward to in Kickstarter is the opportunity to make an M rated game,” said Tim Cain, senior programmer at Obsidian. “I think many publishers steer clear of that these days, and I think there are a lot of themes we can explore.”

As always, a wide variety of bonuses are available depending on how much fans give to the cause. Pledges range from a Steam copy of Project Eternity for $20, Collectors Editions for $140 or more, designing in-game NPC’s or epic weapons for $1000, and an invite to the Project Eternity launch party for a $10,000 pledge.

Video game projects are some of the most popular and most successful Kickstarter projects. For example, Stainless Games raised over $600,000 to develop a Carmageddon sequel. Tim Schafer and Double Fine were able to raise an astounding $3.3 million for Double Fine Adventure. The Project Eternity has already raised over $200,000 of its $1.1 million goal at this time, proving once again that gamers are willing to pay, upfront, for great developers to make great games.
