Rezzed: Chris Avellone On Project Eternity & Black Isle

Have a load of that

I’m most distressed that I didn’t get a chance to say hello to Chris ‘Planescape Torment’ Avellone during my limited time at Rezzed. Especially because the only other time I’ve met him when was when I was blind drunk on French wine and couldn’t manage anything more than a witless reference to talking skulls. Still, they do say you should never meet you heroes, so at least I haven’t had to risk discovering he has bad breath or doesn’t like eye contact or fiddles with his nipples during conversation. Instead, I can live vicariously and safely through this video of his hour-long natter about Obisidian’s strange history, his work at Black Isle and plans for the upcoming mega-Kickstartered Project Eternity.

Sadly there’s no new footage of Eternity, as far as I can tell, but there is plenty of info and some lovely old art from the many other games on his impressive CV. Also chat about Dr Who and Dark Souls: ain’t he quite the modern fellow?

Avellone even held an informal Q&A in the (horrible) pub on site afterwards, though sadly that wasn’t filmed. Unless one of you heroes cheekily captured it with your electronic telephonic portable informational device? Please do share it if you did.
