Project Eternity Using Unity

A Project Eternity Kickstarter update has word from Obsidian Entertainment that they have selected the Unity engine for their upcoming RPG, calling this "the best tool for the job." Word is: "Unity enables small teams to be very productive. Unity has an amazing development environment that makes it very easy for programmers, artists and designers to work together to build great games. In a very short time we have already made great progress prototyping some of the core functionality for Project Eternity." As for their fundraising efforts, they are currently at over $1.8 million, which has triggered another milestone, with the $2.0 million and $2.2 million milestones looking reachable with over three weeks remaining. Thanks nin.

They're doing this with Kickstarter because they can't get any publishers to fund a game in this style.

Wasteland 2 is using the Unity engine, and they probably saw the progress that had been made with it, and decided to use it too. The little scene they showed off from Wasteland 2 looks fine.

Unity engine added support for Linux a month ago, and one game has already shipped using its Linux support. It's no longer a hypothetical, it has happened.

A lot of strong opinions here, but you guys should read up on this stuff before you start criticizing everything about it. It's not like this is secret info.
