There are only 50 hours to go in Obsidian Entertainment's Project Eternity Kickstarter campaign, so I suspect that update #23 is one of only a few more updates we'll receive prior to the funding being successful. This one contains a brand new wallpaper, as well as information about a new development documentary they'll be including, a deck of playing cards that can be added as an add-on, and word that 40,000 likes on Facebook will get a second level added to the Mega Dungeon:
Weâ€™ve hit the $3M mark now on Project Eternity and itâ€™s on to add another Big, Big City to the game! We have less than 50 hours to go before the Kickstarter ends!
Before we announce some new stuff, some quick housekeeping is in order. If you are looking to add anything on to your pledge, check out our Project Eternity Add-On List page. This includes instructions on how to add on other options, as well as what our current offerings are.
Also to reduce some confusion in finding what each tier contains (weâ€™re no longer able to update some of our posts on the Kickstarter site), we have a comprehensive list of the Project Eternity Reward Tiers up as well over on our Tumblr site.
Two last items, weâ€™re hosting an AMA (Ask Me Anything) tomorrow on reddit. A number of Project Eternity staffers will be on hand at 10AM PDT / 1PM ET to answer your questions about the game! Then at 5 PM PDT / 8 ET, watch us on Ustream play some D&D in the studio!
Project Eternity the Documentary
The big news for the day is that we are adding a documentary covering the development of Project Eternity.
After getting a lot of requests to do a documentary, like the Double Fine Adventure, we started looking into it a couple of weeks ago. We talked about it more last week and decided that we donâ€™t have a visual history of one of our games, even after almost ten years as a company. We felt it was something we should just do and do it without it being a new stretch goal.
So, we are happy to announce that we are going to include a stream, download, or physical copy of the documentary in all of our Kickstarter reward tiers. At the $20/$25 level you will be able to stream it, at the $35 level you will be able to download it, and at the $140 level (and physical tiers above) we will include a DVD / Blu-ray.
We are not going to use the Kickstarter funding to do this however, since this is something we decided to do anyway. To us, it is a thank you to all of you for supporting us over the last month in making Project Eternity a reality and a historical record for everyone at Obsidian as well.
