Chalk up another record-breaking Kickstarter… yesterday, Obsidian studios (makers of favorites such as Planescape: Torment, Fallout: New Vegas, and Alpha Protocol) started a kick for a new, original RPG, codenamed Project Eternity. This is perhaps the “spiritual successor to Planescape” project that’s been considered a theoretical possibility for some time in studio interviews.
Given the studio’s pedigree, even with a fairly vague pitch, it’s already gone on to make a million dollars in 24 hours. So, that’s pretty incredible. But not entirely surprising! The highlight for me has really been watching Chris Avellone’s astonishment on Twitter as if he never expected this to happen.
The project will be fully funded approximately by the time I hit “post” on this. But if you want an early-bird backer reward – of which there is 7,200, no sorry 7,100, no wait, um … they’re going fast.
