Pillars of Eternity - Project Eternity's final name?

Recommended Posts

Nothing is ever final until the Game of the Year Edition is released.

 

I'll give the name until the official announcement, however.

Most possibly. 8P


Should we not start with some Ipelagos, or at least some Greater Ipelagos, before tackling a named Arch Ipelago? 6_u

Love it. Finally, there's a proper handle for this endeavor. Can't wait to discover if the pillars are figurative, or literal, soul-based, or all of the above.

I like it, I hope it is indeed the official name.  As long as it doesn't wind up being called Legends of <whatever> I'll be fine with the name.

They will name it "Legends of Eternity" or "Eternal Legends" just to spite you.

Shrug. X of Y is kind of bland, but what you gonna do. I guess it worked for Age of Empires :p

 

The acronym doubles up with Path of Exile too lol. Tbh plain Eternity would be better.

 

Unless Eternity is the franchise and Pillars is just the name of the first game.

Actually a very good name, the word "pillar" is rarely used and it fits the acronym "PE"
And it seems we get to wreck things up. Pillars are to be knocked after all.

I found myself thinking this as well. "Project Eternity" is really ingrained in my mind so I'm glad they kept with that theme. But the X of Y format takes something out of it on first pass. The more I hear it though the more I like it. It's in the same vein as Pillars of Islam, or Pillars of Narrative which describe key tenets or elements to a concept, practice or skill. I think the name just has a lot of syllables and that is the primary reason that name seems a bit cumbersome to voice or read. Though Metal Gear Solid, or Shin Megami Tensai don't exactly win on fronts of meaning or concision either.

 

I have to say I'm very happy with where the name stands. I wouldn't expect them to change it again at this point. There is something to be said about building the proper mind share for the title. I'm sure they have settled and will begin associating this name with their project during the remaining months of development.

I like it - keeps the PE bit and evokes imagination.

Not bad, I can certainly envision "Pillars of Eternity" as a marketable franchise name for a series. At the very least, I like it more than the names of any of the games that inspired PE...

I was ambivalent about the name until I read this. Fingers crossed.

This is just to surprise us when they announce it's called "The Eternal Guido".

Try again guys IMO. Doesn't feel natural/obvious enough.

I think it's ok, though I would like to suggest "Lost in Eternity", "Engulfed by Eternity" and my personal favourite "Road to Eternity"

Pillars could also be referring to the Pillars of Adra, which probably play an integral role in the story of the game.

Though I remember the campaign referring to the backers as "Pillars of Eternity" and these are screenshots of the backer portal, so... It would be a nice touch nevertheless and a friendly nod towards us backers. To add that I really like the word pillar. It's somehow really a beautiful word, soundwise and letterwise. :)
