Obsidian announces next game, Project Eternity via Kickstarter

Obsidian Entertainment revealed their latest project today via the crowd-funding site Kickstarter. It's called Project Eternity, and it's designed as a throwback to the isometric western RPGs of yesteryear.

They're looking to bring back some of the classic gameplay from games like Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment. It's a lofty promise, given that those are two of the mostly widely treasured PC games of all time, but then some of Obsidian's top crew (such as Chris Avellone who worked on Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment) were on the teams that created those games.

    Well, this is a startlingly lackluster coverage of one of the most exciting events in the world of gaming in years. The thing is going to be huge! P.S. the captcha says "torment"!!! No kidding!

    Here's the link for everyone: $460k in 6 hours? Obviously isometric RPGs are dead.

    And who said they were dead to begin with?

    Could I suggest including a link to the project in the article for those who wish to consider supporting?

    Obsidian makes terrible horribly buggy games. I think not on this one.
