Project Eternity surpasses $1.1 million goal as Obsidian announces stretch goals


It took just over one day for Obsidian Entertainment to hit their Project Eternity Kickstarter goal of $1.1 million. Revealed on FridayProject Eternity is an isometric, party-based RPG set in a new fantasy world being developed by Obsidian — the creators of popular titles like Fallout: New Vegas and Dungeon Siege III.

Looking to "recapture the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia of classic RPGs", Obsidian had originally set a funding goal of $1.1 million for Project Eternity, but having already met the goal, Obsidian has unveiled a series of stretch goals for continued funding. Depending on how far the funding reaches, Obsidian will add a slew of new features and bonuses to the game, including a Mac version, new playable races, and more. Below are the first set of announced stretch goals for Project Eternity.

1.1 million, Base Goal – Achieved!
Base game includes three races, five classes, and five companions. We have ideas for these, but we want to hear your opinions on what you'd like to see. Stay tuned to Kickstarter, our website, and our forums to join in on the conversation.

1.4 million, New Playable Race, Class, and Companion!
Expands your options for character creation and adds a companion of the new class.

1.6 million, a Mac Version of Project Eternity and The Story Grows!
We've listened and we’ll make a Mac version of the game at this tier. We're also going to add a new major storyline along with new quests, locations, NPCs, and unique loot (special histories everyone?).

1.8 million, New Playable Race, Class, and Companion!
The options grow for your main character and the roster of your motley crew expands with the addition of a new companion from the selected class.

2.0 million, Player House!
Get your own house in the game that you can customize, store equipment in, and where your companions hang out, or, as the elves say, "chillax".

2.2 million, a new Region, a new Faction and another new Companion! And, dare we say it... ? LINUX!
Great news, everyone! For the Tarball Knights of Gzippia out there, we'll be adding Linux support!
Also, the world of Project Eternity grows in a major way with the inclusion of a whole new faction and the territory it holds. This adds new NPCs, quests, magic items, and hours of gameplay. And yes, you got it, another companion.

2.4 million and beyond! Coming Soon!

We've been listening to your feedback, and have the following announcements:

  • DRM Free: We are looking into it! Please check back for updates.
  • Digital Only Tiers are coming!
  • PayPal is coming asap. Please be patient!
  • New $5k Tier. We are looking into a new $5k tier since it sold out so quickly! We are looking into equivalent alternatives.

Project Eternity is currently sitting at $1.47 million pledged, meaning we have already unlocked the first stretch goal. Next up is a Mac version of the game. If you are a Mac owner, it's time for you to stand up and prove that developer's should take your platform seriously when it comes to gaming!
