You may have heard the news that Obsidian Entertainment, the development team behind Fallout: New Vegas and Alpha Protocol (as if you didn't know) has put together a Kickstarter for its latest project — but did you know that it managed to reach its $1.1 million goal within days? Man, that was fast...
At time of writing Project Eternity is sitting at $1,359,273, which is just a ludicrous amount of money to raise in a matter of days. It sort of proves the power Kickstarter really has if you have a loyal fanbase, and the right channels with which to promote yourself.
Obsidian has now put together a list of stretch goals — essentially a list of new content the team will be able to add with extra resources...
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.
The game will also be DRM free.
