$1.1 million Pledged In Less Than 24 Hours
Obsidian's Project Eternity kickstarter campaign smashed its $1.1 million pledge target within a single day, meaning that the spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale is definitely going to get made. Now that the total stands at slightly under one and a half million, Obsidian have deployed some stretch goals to add new races, versions and features to their RPG.
Just in case you missed the memo: "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."
$1.4 million: New Playable Race, Class, and Companion
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
