Obsidian Entertainment has started a kickstarter last month to crowdfund Project Eternity: an isometric, party-based computer RPG set in a new fantasy world. I immediately backed them as soon as I found out about this. Why am I so excited about all this? Baldur’s Gate, Planescape: Torment and basically all Infinity Engine games are my all-time favorites and this game looks like it will be a worthy spiritual successor, unlike some other games that said they would be (I’m looking at you, Dragon Age!). They have some serious gamedev starpower in the development team, former Black Isle rockstars and people that worked on Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment.
Now, with only two days left to fund this gem, it’s time to pay an edible tribute to this game before it’s even released! From the information released so far, it definitely looks like exactly the type of game that gamers like me have been waiting for for so long. I’ve baked a Project Eternity chocolate mud cake, frosted with chocolate glaze and decorated with the Ouroboros dragon/snake that they’ve been using in the Project Eternity logo in marzipan, dusted in cocoa powder. It was very hard to photograph this in the evening and looks much better in person, but what are you going to do ;)
There’s still some stretch goals I’d love to see them reach. So please, if you’re at all excited about this game, back the Kickstarter here while you still can: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/obsidian/project-eternity. They also have a very likeable facebook page ^^
