Project Eternity Raises Lots Of Money Awfully Quickly

I’m early-morning compiling Kickstarter Katchup before a trip to see inside-out animals at the Natural History Museum, but there’s one highlight that needs its own post. Yesterday’s announcement from Obsidian that they’re making a new, old-school RPG in the spirit of Planescape: Torment was always going to be popular. But even so, they set their sights pretty high. $1.1m is the highest gaming Kickstarter I’ve seen, and setting a “limit” of 25,000 pledgers at the $20 level could almost be seen as hubris. Er, forget all that. In about 14 hours the project has raised $780,000. Jaw, floor. It’s safe to say people want to play a new Obsidian RPG. And now we get to see if Obsidian’s rather long-time reputation for having their games come out falling short of their vision was really because of publishers. Sitting in front of the project’s page, watching the pledge counter ticking up, is pretty spellbinding. It’s gone up $3,000 since I started writing this paragraph.
