We brought you the news yesterday that Obsidian Entertainment had turned to Kickstarter for the funding of their newest RPG, tentatively titled Project Eternity. With a goal of $1.1 million, one of the highest ever seen on the crowd funding site, it might have been expected that it would take some time to reach that lofty goal, if it would at all. It seems, however, that gamers have responded to the idea of an WRPG that harks back to the days of such grand creations and ideas as the original Fallout and Baldur’s Gate. In less than two days, it has been surpassed, meaning that the game will go into full production.
The developer also has “stretch goals” that they will provide as the tally continues to rise which, as you may gather, are additional things that they would like to include in the game above and beyond their original vision. With it now officially underway, all we can do is wait as it is scheduled for a PC-only release in April of 2014.
