Obsidian Releases First Screenshot For Its New Kickstarter Project

Ooh, and it's a lovely waterfall. Looks spiffing.

Obsidian's Kickstarter project 'Project Eternity' has been kickstarted so hard it's getting out of control. Not only has it made its targets, it's made so much money the team are probably seriously struggling to come with ideas for stretch goals! With 5 days remaining, the team has raised almost $2.7 million, and there's no reason to believe it won't crack $3m before the time is up. Pretty phenomenal.

In this update, the team provides an absolute metric buttload (that's a technical term) of info on the lore of the universe Obsidian is attempting to build and gives a video update on the project which I've linked to above.

Nicely done folks.

    That's a screenshot?
    I'm spiffing all over the place.

      I think you're confused as to what spiffing means? - but yes, all over the place indeed

    A link to the kickstarter project would have been good. For those looking for it http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/obsidian/project-eternity?ref=category

    There are no rainbows, so it shouldn't upset anyone. Less tongue in cheek, that's a pretty amazing screenshot. I was thinking it was a reference photo for a moment.

    Very keen for this game! Had already backed before the screenshot came out and now I am even more excited if that is the design quality.

      Agreed this just makes me so happy that i backed the game gives me even greater hope for a great game.

    Yup.. as per the update, it was rendered in 3D then transformed to 2D and then details and flourishes added by the artists.. which is how they intend to create all of the environments.

    There's still time to get in on the Kickstarter for this project.. I think $25 gets you a digitial DRM-free copy of this when it's finished.. but there are other tiers of course too :)

    I really hope we can get the Stronghold, I love that sort of stuff. Want that much more than most of the goals (eg the deep dungeon thing, those bore me to tears after the first million levels).

Join the discussion!
