    Obsidian just announced old school isometric RPG!

    And it's even going to even be M-rated!

    For those who have no idea why anyone would be excited about this check their Kickstarter page, the video explains it:

    Project Eternity

    The Kickstart is absolutely exploding! That page has been up only for few hours and it has already gathered about 400k!

    These guys are the people behind such classics as original Fallots, Icewind Dales, F:NV, KotOR2, many more but most importantly perhaps the best RPG of all time Planescape: Torment.

    Couple interviews:

    Kotaku interview: http://kotaku.com/5942307/the-people...g-my-dream-rpg

    Now go donate them some money so they can make the best possible it can be.

    That logo seems like an Elder Scrolls lawsuit waiting to happen.

    Obsidian and Bethesda are in bed together, so I highly doubt it.

    They aren't really Bethesda just "ordered" F:NV from Obsidian, but anyway that logo is just the working title. The final game is not going to be called "Project Eternity".

    Donated $35. Apparently it had ~$50.000 pledged back then couple of hours ago and already they're rising above $400.000 pledged..

    Obsidian webpages and forums have been pretty much dead since that Kickstarter page was discovered.

    Yea, its the pledge sum is growing crazy fast. Between me making the OP and now it has risen by like 30k dollars! This could easily become the biggest game KS project ever, which is awesome for anyone who loves great RPGs! Got myself signed CE just to support these great people.

    The kickstarter thing is intriguing. It's great to see so many people supporting game development and I have high hopes given the calibur of the people working on this (Although it won't be my kind of game).

    Best of luck to them all.

    The whole title screen they used just screams Morrowind.

    Im hoping its changed for their sake.

    I don't really see the connection at all though its been like 10(?) years since I played Morrowind. The snake eating its tail thing is thousands of years old and definitely not something Bethesda has exclusive rights on, other than that there is just text there and I don't believe Bethesda has anything even close to being called P:E.

    Cool.

    But I expect the game to be unplayable at release, as Obsidian titles usually are.

    Very interesting. Hope it will be less buggy than other works of Obsidian. Also, is it just me, or the logo looks exactly like Morrowind?

    EDIT: Apparently it isn't just me.

    Man, every time I come back to look at this the amount of money just keeps jumping up by a LOT. This is so cool. I'm really excited now. It's definitely going to get backed. Might be a while before we actually see anything but it's still awesome nonetheless.

    As if Bethesda and the Elder Scrolls invented the Ouroboros. What a joke.



    The project seems to hold potential. If the music is any indicator, this may as well end up very good.

    This specific subgenre is very much needed these days, there haven't been many worthwhile games that fit it recently.


    Depth, characters, plot, a breathing universe, and all in the context of an isometric party based RPG, is one more thing that gaming is missing today.

    Hmm this as potential. Kickstarter is quite amazing tbh.

    Hopefully this project will do well. There is a lack of decent party-based RPGs lately.
