    This is a gaming forum... Do I really need to be more specific?

  1. Also in favor of delay (if needed) = for more polishing. But this conversation might be a bit too early one to have. I think there's tons of things to figure out now that the budget and the amount of contect is finally cleared. They said at the start that the real working starts after KS and that was specifically because they weren't sure what where the final numbers and how larger would the world be. I'm confident, that if they say they can do it by spring 2014, they can do it, but deciding a specific date before budget and the size of game is even decided yet seems a bit of a gamble to m
  2. Haven't been decided yet. Kind of funny, since the project is already so well known from Project Eternity and P:E I don't mind the new name, but it would be cool the the name could still be abbreviated as ''PE/P:E''. Different name but still started with P and E. Might reduce the confusion.
  3. I don't think the lack of diversity will be a problem here. Lorfean's example list is a classic one, which you can start building from. In the KS picture (even if it's more of an extra art piece than actual plan) the first levels suggest for more typical castle dungeon which is always cool place to hang out and hide a trap door or two. Going lower levels you would also go through the stratums -> dirt and roots -> rock/granite -> huge underground caves -> with underground streams (maybe that's why the lower levels seems to be flooting?) and those are just ''normal'' levels caused by
  4. It might be more phychological thank you think. For example: the boost started on the 11th and 12th day but decreased a litte just under the 3m mark (the first half of 12th). Never the less, since the 3m mark was achieved, during the next hours and days till now (and beyond) the bledges started to rise once again with immense speed. Immediately we got around 9k/h during those hours and even topped the chart in this website: http://ruinedkingdoms.com/project-eternity/ ( ^P:E got over 14k during one hour, which is more than the chart could count for! ) So yes, I do think that it
  5. There is at least one projection (calculated) of what the final amount could be, ranking from lowest to highest 3.3m - 3.6m, respectively. http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/obsidian/project-eternity/#chart-exp-projection The numbers of course chance as the project goes forward, but for the last couple of days, they have increased from 3.2-3.5m so it's looking promising! Then there's always the trending amount (currently at $3.278.667) which I think is calculated somewhat differently giving the much lower assumption. If you ask me, we'll top the 3.5-3.6m in Kickstart alone and wi
  6. Mentioned this on other thread, but it's very likely that the cost of translating the text will get covered just by the non-English speaking gamers, especially if the language is big (German/Spanish/French). Even if they wouldn't add much extra, it then won't be money away from other things. Those ''language bledges'' can easily get us to a new strech goal we couldn't have got without them. They'll get their language, Obsidian gets money, everybody benefits ofrom the new stuff. Even English users.
  7. (Example:) I live in Japan at the moment and it's rare that people know enough English to introduce themself. Even all the university students I've met have had problems with that level of basics. I'm on a English class (second year in high school) and only two people can speak it on (somewhat) conversatioval level. For most of them, it takes 10-30 minutes to fully understand one easy page of a children story. All the TV-shows and movies are dubbed. All the books translated. All the games in Japanese. It's rare for people at banks or post office to speak English. etc etc Didn't translate?
  8. Like most of people, after reading Game of Thrones, I too put my vote on the ''there is no good or evil'' side. There are just different motives which lead the way to your actions. The 'judgement' just depends on the side are you looking the story; I murdered a man. Seems evil from the point of view of his poor son. Doesn't seem so evil to me for he tried to rape and kill my sister. I cut a hand from my mother and barely ran away from her. She wanted to sell me as a slave for the sake of food money for my borthers. I fought a battle where many innocent perished against a black and fl
  9. Big thanks to Obsidian for this update! Especially for the language confirmation! (+ the realistic way you're going with artwork is very promising:P ) English players won't lose anything with this update. Most likely the non English speakers pledge enough to cover the cost for translation, so even if there won't be that much extra money, it pays for itself without being away from other contents. And comparing to the final sum they are going to get via Kickstarter (now that the language pack is confirmed, +3mil seems much more likely) the text translation doesn't cost that much. Going t
  10. I've always played all my games in English, starting from a point where I couldn't understand the starting screen, to the point that I can read and listen English almost as well as my native Finnish. Sure, the school has helped, but most of my fluency I've got via books and games etc. meaning: by practical use! For that I already owe a big thanks to the gaming industry for teaching me English. Playing shooters don't really improve your vocabulary since the story isn't very important. RPGs on the other hand are the exact opposite with their deep stories and plotlines. Since you NEED to be a
  11. This might be an unusual question since languages beside English are more or less a norm in games nowadays but in this case, is there a enough money for that? Since Project Eternity is fan funded, there are going to be some compromises (it's stated at their Kickstart page that there WILL be compromises if budged is below X number of money). How much do you need to get to give us choises in French/German/Spanish etc.? If there are going to be voice acting, might be too much to ask to have those in other than English (?) but for the text at least? I obviously don't know how much money th
