It seems like each letter of first hidden line in source will be revealed every day. Yesterday it was:

PROJECTX ? :D

I have two guesses at the moment.

 

1) Some form of reincarnation of The Black Hound project.

 

2) Some Darklands-esque type of game.

 

Very much doubt that it will be Planescape as Chris (who would be the logical champion of such a project) is busy with Wasteland 2.

I'm still holding out hope for a fantasy setting combined with high technology, i.e. fundamentalist religious order keeping the world in a dark age while rebels use scientific developments to advance their goals. But that's just me - generic fantasy is just too boring for my tastes, I'd much rather see a twist on it.

 

Oh yea that'd be great, because it hasn't been done a million times over.

A thought: Does anybody else find it a bit ironic that Obsidian is teasing us into speculating about the truth behind some mysterious statements... by presenting us mysterious statements that explicitly postulate the fruitlessness of attempting to ascertain actual truth?

 

If it weren't such a disastrous idea from a public-relations perspective, I'd be suspecting that we're all being trolled.

 

Or maybe this is meta-commentary on the nature of game-industry hype (or of marketing in general)-- the important thing is the mystery. The actuality can never live up to the universe of potentials that exist in the minds of a thousand fanboys reading press releases.

They sure are behaving very "publisher like" at the moment... :p

For some reason a lot of the stuff kind of reminds me of THIEF. Thief 4 is in development by SquareEnix, but Godhammer sort of reminds me of the Hammerites and a lot of the stuff being presented just seems dark/mysterious as THIEF was. But obviously this has nothing to do with it, just pointing out some similarities (to me).

 

Really, really, really hope this is a Forgotten Realms game. I loved the dialogue in BG/ID/NWN2. Mask of the Betrayer was incredible.

This game better feature lots of crates or it's Project X in name only.

Imaging a first-person fantasy rpg that I can play as female and use magic. If it has those things, I'm probably there. Lovin' the buzz and speculation.

I hope I can play as a female in this. Loved Alpha Protocol to death but it sucks that being a woman wouldn't make any sense in that fiction.

It's interesting how men don't mind playing female characters in games, but women more generally stick to female characters.

 

At the moment, I personally find it more likely that Project X some new IP, maybe also a Kickstarter project.

 

Hey guys, what if the Ouroboros stands for infinity - could it not also stand for THE INFINITY ENGINE?

 

A newly developed, kickstarted IE game would definitely get my full financial backing. Or maybe we should be thinking more along the lines of IWD:EE?

Probably because the vast majority of game characters are male. The fact that can you usually create your own character in RPGs is one of the reasons why I love them.

What about Obsidian's current job listings, they're hiring some 2D specialists like "2D Environment Intern" and "2D Environment Illustrator". Could this be a hint that the new game would be 2D or just job listing in general or for some other project?

 

I'm hoping for a new Baldur's Gate or IWD:EE indeed (hmm, I guess I wouldn't mind it being Torment:EE either).

I'd love that but 2D game development is actually pretty expensive. I'd rather see the budget used somewhere else but I wouldn't complain if we got a beautiful 2D adventure.

What worries me is the combination lf faux Gaelic and religious overtones which reminds me of Dragon Age: Origins. The setting was the thing I disliked most about that game :ninja:

Seems rather existential in some respects, also reminds me of Aristotle, I think he was speaking on the getting of wisdom increasing mans sorrows or some such. Been a fair few years since I studied the classics however.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!
