Kickstart My Heart: Project Eternity by Obsidian

Makers of some of the best RPG video games to date: Obsidian have launched a kickstarter project to develop their own game from the ground up.

Source: Kickstarter: Project Eternity

Obsidian Entertainment started a kickstarter project today that has already started rocketing towards its fundraising goal.  The company has been behind development of hits like Fallout 1, 2 and New Vegas, Neverwinter Nights, Knights of the Old Republic II, Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale series, and more. 

Game Concept:

Project Eternity will take the central hero, memorable companions and the epic exploration of Baldur’s Gate, add in the fun, intense combat and dungeon diving of Icewind Dale, and tie it all together with the emotional writing and mature thematic exploration of Planescape: Torment.

Combat uses a tactical real-time with pause system - positioning your party and coordinating attacks and abilities is one of the keys to success. The world map is dotted with unique locations and wilderness ripe for exploration and questing. You’ll create your own character and collect companions along the way – taking him or her not just through this story, but, with your continued support, through future adventures. You will engage in dialogues that are deep, and offer many choices to determine the fate of you and your party. …and you'll experience a story that explores mature themes and presents you with complex, difficult choices to shape how your story plays out.



  Feeling that many game makers had moved on from party based RPG's, Obsidian felt like fan desire for such games had not. Attempting to find backers through traditional publishers was proving difficult as they fleshed out their concept, so they've turned to Kickstarter to raise money for the project. The creative team includes Chris Avellone, writer of Planescape: Torment; Tim Cain, the creator of the Fallout franchise; and Josh Sawyer, the project lead on the excellent New Vegas (and released his own hardcore mod for the PC version of the game after it had been watered down by the publisher for a better fit for console players).

They hope to release the game in early 2014.

I'm in on this one, looks cool to me. It's essentially like pre-ordering the game for less than it's normally costs to buy a video game.
