Obsidian announces Project Eternity as new Kickstarter

After four days of teases and speculation, Obsidian Entertainment has unveiled Project Eternity as its newest RPG in development. It is looking for $1.1 million on Kickstarter for a game that pays homage to the old Infinity Engine games we loved from the days of Black Isle Studios.

The Kickstarter page for the game (which is using Project Eternity as a working title) says the dev team hopes to "recapture the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia of classic RPGs that we enjoyed making -- and playing." Obsidian boasts many of the same Black Isle members that created such games as Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, including Feargus Urquhart Josh Sawyer, and Chris Avellone. They also have Tim Cain, who worked on Fallout, Arcanum and Temple of Elemental Evil.
