Project Eternity Reaches Kickstarter Goal In Just Over 24 Hours

Obsidian Entertainment’s Project Eternity, initially teased just over a week ago, has reached its Kickstarter goal of $1.1 million after just over 24 hours.

According to Obsidian Project Eternity “aims to recapture the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia of classic RPGs that we enjoyed making – and playing.”

According to the Fallout: New Vegas and Alpha Protocol developers the game will:

“Take the central hero, memorable companions and the epic exploration of Baldur’s Gate, add in the fun, intense combat and dungeon diving of Icewind Dale, and tie it all together with the emotional writing and mature thematic exploration of Planescape: Torment.

“Combat uses a tactical real-time with pause system – positioning your party and coordinating attacks and abilities is one of the keys to success. The world map is dotted with unique locations and wilderness ripe for exploration and questing. You’ll create your own character and collect companions along the way – taking him or her not just through this story, but, with your continued support, through future adventures.

“You will engage in dialogues that are deep, and offer many choices to determine the fate of you and your party. …and you’ll experience a story that explores mature themes and presents you with complex, difficult choices to shape how your story plays out.”

On twitter the company posted: “Thanks to everyone for helping us hit our $1.1M goal so quickly!!! We will have an update very soon about Project Eternity.”

With 31 days to go there’s still plenty of time to back the project and avail of the incentives that come with doing so which includes a downloadable soundtrack and in-game items.
