Obsidian Entertainment’s countdown launched earlier this week has turned out to be a Kickstarter project for Project Eternity, a new fantasy role-playing game for PC that pays respect to “the great Infinity Engine games of years past,” including Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment. The game aims to “recapture the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia” of classic RPGs.
How? It will take the “central hero, memorable companions, and the epic exploration” of Baldur’s Gate, the “fun, intense combat and dungeon diving” of Icewind Dale, and the “emotional writing and mature thematic exploration” of Planescape: Torment, and tie it all into one project.
If it sounds likesomething you’d be interested in, do visit the Kickstarter page and pledge your support. If the project reaches its goal of $1.1 million, it will see release. It is currently at $373,000.
