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.
