Obsidian's new game is Project Eternity, a fantasy RPG

Pays homage to Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale.

Obsidian's new game is Project Eternity, a Kickstarted fantasy RPG that pays homage to Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale.


Hey, my guess was pretty good!

It's a PC game, and that's a working title.

Game designers Chris Avellone (lead designer of Planescape: Torment), Tim Cain (creator of Fallout) and Josh Sawyer are helming the project.

Project Eternity will have tactical real-time combat with a pause system. Positioning party members and coordinating attacks will be key to success.

You'll create your own hero and collect companions along the way. It sounds like the hero you make will persist across "future adventures", providing this game gets funded and off the ground.

The story will explore "mature themes" and present you with "complex, difficult choices".

Obsidian needs $1.1 million to make the dream come true. For god's sake help them.
