Project Eternity - Passes $3.5M including Paypal
 
Obsidian's Kickstarter is on $3.41M as I write, plus $106k in Paypal:
Quote:

Quick #ProjectEternity PayPal Update: $106,663 - 2,230 backers
…which means they has passed $3.5M and the big city #2 is in.

Well I don't like announcing achieves until I see it on KS (we'll apply PP $ to final totals) but uhhh, it's hard not to say… BBC2 IS IN!
More information.

And another level to the Endless Paths dungeon… :)

Dammit, where's the next stretch goal???

Dez October 16th, 2012 12:33

Awesome news! I'm so happy that their kickstarter has been such a success :)

Incredible. A few days ago I didn't believe they would pass $3.5M so this is absolutely great news.

Aditya October 16th, 2012 13:57

Incredible news indeed! One of the reasons why PE kickstarter has been so successful is that Obsidian kept the momentum alive with nearly constant release of gameplay and lore updates, interesting pledge tiers and stream of interviews. The Endless Paths Dungeon concept (and artwork) was also fascinating. Way to go! :)

Hepfully they'll have regular (and detailed) updates as the game progresses too?

borcanu October 16th, 2012 14:19

They will, they want to have people's feedback on feature before they implement them not with 5 months to go with the project like it usually happens.

This is great news! Love the big cities!

Yeah. At this point I would hate to be looking after the community side - you know how bad some players are about demanding a release *now* and that's before they've even paid anything. Those that have paid x dollars are only going to be even more vocal..

azarhal October 16th, 2012 15:02

Right now the community is more about demanding this or that features. There's going to be a lots of polls on that forums in the following months.

arthureloi October 16th, 2012 15:05

I've got so many games to play and so little time I couldn't care less for the release date. I say give me the best polish possible, no matter how long it takes!

joxer October 16th, 2012 15:16

good point arthur, however I'd trash everything I'm playing if Eternity was available today!

Yeah, I noticed that too. Realizing the game is crowd-funded, it makes sense; but I hope Obsidian doesn't bow too much to the "design by committee" approach some of its users would crave and which could lead to a hodge-podge of a disaster, IMO.
So far they've been more than willing to say: "No," which is good.

I can't believe we're going to get a top-down, IE-style game with a stronghold, Watcher's Keep-style mega-dungeon, and two large cities that rival Athkatla and Baldur's Gate. That's just crazy!

blatantninja October 16th, 2012 15:39

With any luck, it will be a commercial success as well (beyond the kickstarter funds) and the publishers will wake up and fund more games like this.

Yep :) It's why I've contributed so much. How often have we all dreamed and waited for such a game - made by the remnants of Black Isle. It's incredible.

Yme October 16th, 2012 15:55

It is also the most-funded video game in Kickstarter now, well done Obsidian.

This type of games don't work on console, which is really good for us, because it mean publishers won't care about its success and won't try to milk the genre with dumped down games.

Drithius October 16th, 2012 16:17

My one reservation over the growth of the project is the size of the Mega-dungeon… at 10 levels, it's already an unwieldy behemoth that will [likely] feel more like a minigame than a piece of history in the world.
