The past month has been absolutely incredible. You have blown away our wildest expectations and we are so excited about starting the journey of creating this game for you. The Kickstarter site will be closing down here in the next few hours – 6 PM PDT to be exact. I would like to remind you that you can watch us at the studio for the final countdown beginning at 12 PM (Noon!) PDT. We will be streaming live on UStream and Twitch.tv.

Final Fun and Silly Reward Tier - Obsidian Loot Bag


Our final fun reward for you is what we are calling the Obsidian Loot Bag at a $350 tier with a limit of 30. The Loot Bag contains an AMD Processor donated by our incredible friends over at AMD (you rock Steve Bell!), a signed Obsidian game (not Project Eternity), and a random assortment of Obsidian loot such as pens, coasters, t-shirts, game patches, doodles, etc. The AMD Processor is an A10, does not have a heat sink attached, and will be shipped OEM style. The Loot Bag includes everything in the $250 tier level too. Since we are shipping computer parts, we can't ship outside the USA with this one.

Big Big City #2, What Now?

We dreamed the impossible dream, and hit our stretch goal of the $3.5m mark with Big Big City #2. Because we have another big city in the game, and by popular demand we are adding two additional slots at the $5000 tier for two more taverns.

Posted Image

As a recap of our stretch goals, here is what you have added to make Project Eternity bigger and better:
  • 11 classes
  • 6 races
  • 8 companions
  • A huge mega dungeon of at least 10 levels (and possibly 11 or 12 by the time this is done!)
  • Player house
  • A stronghold
  • Two big cities
  • And much more.
This will definitely keep us busy over the next 18 months working to bring you Project Eternity.
Early this morning, we took a poll on what you would like to see via Twitter, Facebook, and on our Kickstarter Comments page for remaining stretch goals. Our first reaction is that we want to make the game better instead of just bigger; however we are currently discussing it at the studio right now.

Thank you again from everyone at Obsidian Entertainment. We will see you on the live stream for the final hours of this crazy adventure. The art team put this together to show you a behind the scenes look on how the amazing screenshot was constructed.

Not that it affects me personally, since I can't afford that tier (plus they sold out in about 12 minutes anyway), but can anyone explain this - why can't non-US backers just add extra for the shipping?

Also, would you mind telling us what software was used for those renderings, out of interest?

Huzzah! I love the artwork! ...And that loot bag actually seems like more sweet than funny, but I won't complain about that. :Cant's shifty-eyed grin icon:

Wow - That loot bag deal is awesome - I switched as soon as I saw it - seconds later it sold out! Barely got it!

I don't "need" the CPU - but I can definitely use it - My only question would be - will the CPU ship out before project eternity is released in 2014? I would hope so :)

It likely has to do with import/export laws and customs, and/or where the chips are being specifically sourced from (eg AMD USA, not AMD Global).

Congratulations on the success of this Kickstarter project. I have absolute faith in everyone in Obsidian to make a great cRPG game.

Now on to the long agony of waiting for the final product. :w00t: I hope that Obsidian will be constantly updating the fans on the progress, maybe throw us a screen shot here or a concept art there, or just anything from time to time to "ease the wait" :p

I'm excited, looking forward to it.

Congratulations on making it all the way!
Don't really want to post this here but hopefully it will gain some more attention:
Could you update the paypal page to include the playing cards?
Looking forward to what comes out of the stretchgoal meeting :)

Do we have to wait till 2014 for everything in our tier?

For example is there any way we could get things like patches and tshirts shipped asap rather than more than 18 months from now? I'd pay via an Addon for that alone.

Uh yes, they've given LOTS of words on co-op. Links in sig.

You still need to update the http://project-etern...ty-reward-tiers. I'm curious, do the tiers above $350 also get a loot bag? Not a deal breaker for me or anything, but some of the loot in that bag seemed pretty sweet.

A mighty fine decision, stopping with the stretch goals, the better your content is, the more there is in it. :biggrin:

Also, congratulations on breaking funding records. :thumbsup:

One final reward... U.S. only. How disappointing. This reminds me bad bad memories of "U.S. vs The rest of the World" events.
Anyway congratulations for Sky-rocketing your total pledges amount.

Wait wait---

Player house
A stronghold


I thought these weren't two separate things but the house was upgraded to the stronghold?

No, you get both a house AND a stronghold.

Little disappointed at first with no new goals but more money is a better game goals or no goals so all good.

Making the game better instead of just bigger, seems like a very wise course to take at this point. :)
