More Project Eternity Stretch Goals

Obsidian Community Forum and the Project Eternity Kickstarter Page outline more stretch goals for this upcoming RPG. With the project at over 200% of its $1.1 million goal, they haul out the big guns to start attracting serious money, offering exclusive in-game pets for $50 backers, a hardcover book for $250 backers, and adding players names to the game for $500. They also announce more details on their mega-dungeon goals and offer expanded answers to questions from reddit about the game's combat system. Thanks nin.

Well the guys from Obsidian pretty much summed it up without giving details, but I'll give the details.

AAA Publishers don't give out funds unless its new hat. It has to be the flavor of the year and appeal to the current generation. And if the companies do make something different, publishers leave them in the cold for PR/Adverts/etc and quickly dismantled and absorbed to other teams leaving no support. It's purely about the money with safe bets only.

This is also the reason I can't stand most AAA games anymore, passion is gone, replaced entirely by bottom line. Even if the devs have passion, they are hog tied by publishers often butt raped intentionally or not till they just don't give a shit.

And this is why indies are flourishing, because they don't need bazillions in sales to cover all the publishing red tape bullshit while providing innovation or nostalgic games at a reasonable price -- free to work at their own pace and do what they want unrestricted because they are passionate about their ideas.

So I'm glad to help fund a AAA company saying "F U" to the publishers. Especially when this AAA company made some of the most memorable and enjoyable games in history. Hopefully the end result will be overwhelming success, and some asshole rep in some asshole publishing company will say "Shit, wish we wouldda funded that!!".

And wishful thinking... more and more AAA companies do the same, so those same reps in 5 years time will be the one going out begging top-notch developers to be chosen as their backers, instead of the other way around.
