Project Eternity most-funded video game in Kickstarter
Obsidian Entertainment RPG tops Double Fine Adventure title in pledge value.
Obsidian Entertainment's recent Kickstarter project, titled Project Eternity, is now the highest-funded video game on the crowd-source funding platform.
According to its Kickstarter page (via Polygon), it has surpassed Double Fine Adventure's Kickstarter campaign total of $3,336,371. At the time of writing, Project Eternity's total is at $3,348,171, and has 22 hours left before the project closes. The project started on September 14 and had exceeded its pledged goal of $1,100,000 within 24 hours.
Due to the goals being met, the developers will use the extra funding to possibly feature new playable races, factions, crafting systems, and a personal stronghold for players to store gear and weapons in. The developers will also attempt to enlist the aid of Neverwinter Nights 2's creative lead George Ziets. If the campaign reaches beyond $3.5 million, the developers will add a final goal, called "Big Big City", where the game will feature a giant city hub, reminiscent of Athkatla from Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn.
Project Eternity is an isometric party-based fantasy RPG that will be developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the company behind Fallout: New Vegas and the upcoming South Park: The Stick of Truth.
