Update by Brandon Adler, Lead Producer

 

Hey, everyone. We have lots of goodies for you today. In this backer update we will talk about our latest game Update (3.02), show you a GDC presentation by our Game Director, Josh, and introduce you to Obsidian's recently announced new project.

 

I'll just get right into it.

 

Announcing Tyranny - Obsidian's Newest RPG

At GDC 2016, Obsidian and Paradox announced our upcoming title, Tyranny!

Tyranny is a different take on the classic RPG story, where evil is victorious and you are, more or less willingly, a part of the conquering army. You have power in this world; lots of it, and your choices matter. Choice and consequence are core to the game and it has a branching narrative that ensures each game will be different. Learn more about Tyranny!

 

Pillars of Eternity Update 3.02

Today is the release of our latest game Update, 3.02. It is currently live on Steam and will be up on GoG and Origin within a day. This Update contains hundreds of great fixes and, if you haven't played Pillars in a while, it's a great time to jump back in.

 

Here are some of the major fixes:

 

  • Fixed an issue where some player's game would reset after completing The White March - Part I.
  • Fixed an issue where some players couldn't activate the White Forge or enter Durgan's Battery.
  • Fixed an issue with the final Eyeless Scripted Interaction becoming stuck if you selected yourself.
  • Fixed an issue where some players would get stuck at the Caed Nua End Slide.
  • Fixed multiple issues where some players received black screens on load/transitioning.

For the full notes please head over to the Obsidian Forums and check them out.

 

Josh's GDC Talk

Last week our Game Director, Josh Sawyer, gave a talk about attributes in Pillars of Eternity. The talk, Gods and Dumps: Attribute Tuning in Pillars of Eternity, gave an in depth look into the history of attributes in RPGs and how that history guided our decisions in Pillars of Eternity. If you are interested in Pillars and the systems of the game, you shouldn't miss it.

 

If you would like to see the slides from the talk you can get them here (PDF Warning).

 

Kingdom

kingdom-header.jpg

 

Our friends at Raw Fury have just launched a sale on their first title, Kingdom, an award-winning and IGF nominated sidescrolling strategy game that has enamored thousands of kings and queens with its pixelated charm, simplistic design, and brutally challenging and addictive gameplay. It's 50% off right now, making it just $5, and with 83% positive ratings on Steam it can't be that bad.

 

Play the role of a king or queen atop their horse and enter a procedurally generated realm primed to sustain a kingdom, then toss gold to peasants and turn them into your loyal subjects in order to make your kingdom flourish. Protect your domain at night from the greedy creatures looking to steal your coins and crown, and explore the nearby, mysterious forests to discover curious and cryptic artifacts to aid your kingdom.

 

You can check out the trailer here.

Thanks for everything!

GoG Galaxy shows there is an update available already, but I'll go to sleep now and check it out tomorrow.

Tyranny sounds curious. I'll be following it.

 

I really like the world map aesthetic a lot.

Is it just me, or is there not really much more at all to "learn" about Tyranny at that site? It's almost like false advertising at this point. :p

 

Or maybe I'm just spoiled from Kickstarted games.

Great news! :)

 

Really happy to hear about a new game. Shame it will probably be a Steam exclusive.

Tyranny definitely sounds interesting with some real potential to go dark places as a PC. The premise reminds me a little of the Black Company novels, and I can't say that's a bad association.

Hope not. I probably won't buy it if it is a steam only release. GOG or probably nothing for me.

Oops. I guess I should have made it clear that I meant these patches, not GOG: http://eternity.obsi...wnloads/patches

Probably not for a few weeks at the minimum. The programmers are tied up with some stuff right now, but once they are freed up we will have someone go through and generate the updates.

I’m still volunteering to build and publish *unofficial* patches for the DVD version (Linux only, as I don’t own the other OS this DVD is compatible with):
https://forums.obsid...s/#entry1794105

But I’ll wait for Obsidian agreement before going on with this project, it would be quite a waste of time to build them if you don’t want me to share them afterwards ;)

Is this game also going to based on an anti-theist world?
