Project Eternity Kickstarter Homestretch Plans

3Update #21 on the Kickstarter for Project Eternity by Obsidian Entertainment outlines their plans for the homestretch of this fundraiser, which has raised more than double its original goal. Planned activities include a couple of livestream events (including an all-day Icewind Dale II playthrough) and a reddit AMA session. Thanks nin.

Am I the only one that thinks they've way gone beyond the point of biting off more than they can chew?

No, I worry about that a little, too...but at the same time, I feel like they're a lot more qualified to attempt it than some random team who's never published anything. They've had both hits and misses, and in my opinion, the quality of their games has improved in recent years (compared to some of the buggy games they're sometimes known for).

Also, and the key advantage of KS, is that they don't have a publisher breathing down their neck or dictating a ship date, to match the advertising budget that's already been scheduled. The only people they have to answer to is the fans, and if they said "since we got a lot more money (and added a lot of extra features), this will impact when the final project ships" any sane backer would realize that's a good thing, and be patient.

I'm by no means saying it's a sure bet. But I feel like the risk is low enough that, like you, I pledged high.

Oh, and congrats on 3 million! Nice to see that first thing as I roll out of bed this morning!
