Have you wanted a spiritual successor to Planetscape Torment, then this is your chance to make it happen. Obsidan Entertainment, the developers behind Fallout: New Vegas and Alpha Protocol, have announced this new project which is an isometric, party-based RPG.
They need $1.1 million and the project is getting funds at a rapid pace with $100k already pledged by people. You need to pledge $20 to get the digital version of the game which is redeemable on Steam.
Here’s what the game is about:
“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.”
