Project Eternity Q&A; $3M Goal Reached

A new Kickstarter update for Project Eternity features a Q&A where Obsidian Entertainment responds to community questions about their upcoming RPG. Word is: "This week's Q&A is a little different. I spent some time reading the questions that people were asking in various Project Eternity forums, including our Kickstarter comments, our Project Eternity Facebook page, the RPG Codex forums, the reddit Project Eternity group, and our own Obsidian forums. I have picked five questions to answer, one from each of these forums, and I have answered them below. For each question, I have included the forum poster who asked it, along with his original question text." As for the game's fundraising, with 50+ hours to go, they announce they have surpassed the $3 million mark, which triggers their finals stretch goal, and the game will include Strongholds, which will take the concept of player housing to the next level. Thanks nin.

How do the 'addons' work?
You just add an extra 20 dollars and hope that you get the addon you want somehow?

Doesn't really seem to be a wait for it to be supported through KS unless I'm missing something.
It's easy. Just go to "Manage Pledge" and 'add' the amount for the addon to the tier you selected. They have some examples. Lets say you're at the $140 tier and you want to add the $20 expansion. Just use "Manage Pledge" and change the total to $160. Then later after the KS is over, they will email you asking what addons you want with the tier you selected. Just be sure to have the correct total.

They only need about 800 more backers and we'll get another dungeon level!

I think they should release another screenshot or two as well. On the 11th when they released that first one, the number of backers more than doubled from the day before.

Getting $3.5m is going to be close unless it kicks up again today or tomorrow.

I'm thinking the same thing. It's not impossible, but it needs a kick in the pants any time now.

Either way, it's still been a fantastic success. And I wonder, if we don't make 3.5, if the second city is just folded into the expansion. I'd be fine with that.

Well, on the 11th thru the 14th they got $545,107, an average of $136k. Double that for today and tomorrow and you get just over $3.3m, add the Paypal and you are over $3.4m. Getting $3.5m is going to be close unless it kicks up again today or tomorrow.

"There's no demand for classic isometric RPG's"

Bwhwhaha...

Sadly, these numbers won't even make any of the big publishers blink. 65,000 people and 3.5 million bucks is loose change in the couch for them...

Now if it also sells very well after it comes out, they might take notice.

Anyway, fuck the "wisdom" of publishers. I'm glad I can get games funded this way.

Well, it is no surprise that fans of Old School RPG's, and I truly mean Icewind Dale, Baldurs Gate, Torment with that, have a bit more money to give around

Paypal Stats: $87,7K
Current level: $3,130,612
With Paypal $3,218,312

So we are only short 280k to the 3.5m goal post. I think that is more than doable. And I already said before, Kickstarter sells hope. The best doing projects are those with a vision you can subscribe to. And if someone sells me a Infinity Era RPG... done modern, in a new IP? I am so sold on that hope.

Having the content of of both of the large cities from BG1 and 2 in the same game would give this game an average playtime of 120 hours as a rough guess.

Makes me wonder what they'd do with the $20 expansion addon you can tag on already. If they hit 3.5, would they add a third city in the expansion? A second continent? Hot damn.

I'm glad they are doing a documentary. I'm also impressed that they aren't going to use KS funds to do so.

If they are smart, after its all done, they will allow people to upgrade and pre-order, and continue by running off-kickstarter stretch goals.

If you please, I would hope the MegaDungeon will have the same degree of relevance and revelation to Project: Eternity as did the Modron Maze in Planescape: Torment.

Give meaning to the Dungeons existence! Alongside the obvious loot drops let the discovery of rooms and passageways lead to interesting revelations about the game's lore and previous visitors to the dungeon levels and its current inhabitants. Make the connection to the upper world surprising and unexpected! (Specific comparisons left out as to not spoil even one small bit of the Modron Maze.)

Above all, keep the wit and banter!

62.5 - that gets us a 9th floor, right?

And yeah, this is unbelievable...unbelievably awesome!

Oh yeah, no doubt it'll reach $3.5 mil. I'm guessing we'll get at least 11 dungeon levels as well.
