The discussion will be jam-packed with stories about the team's successes and failures as they created the Kickstarter-backed game. You'll even get a sneak peek into the future of Pillars of Eternity games, including a breakdown of new game features.

 

Join Obsidian Entertainment's Josh Sawyer (Game Director), Adam Brennecke (Executive Producer/Lead Programmer) and Brandon Adler (Lead Producer) as they delve into the development highs and lows of creating the critically-acclaimed Pillars of Eternity!

 

When: Saturday, 8/29 3:00PM-4:00PM

Too bad Avellone is no longer around. No offense to Josh, Adam, or Brandon...but all three of them together giving a one hour panel is going to be as dry as the Mojave in July.

 

That being said, I look forward to viewing this panel. Will there be a stream, or better yet, video of the full panel?

Good panel.

 

Found interesting that Kaz not only designed the logo, but also came up with the name of the game.

 

Also confirmed that Part 2 of the White March will be the last XP. PoE 2 will be next.

Did they allude to PoE 2 as a Fig initiative, or ...   

 

Nope. But that would've been a good question to ask during the Q&A...and one they would probably hypothetically refer to (the conveniently non-present) Feargus...

 

So, can we ask that here instead?

I'm sure our good friends at Obs will have a way to get it to us :)

 

I honestly didn't expect another expansion after TWM pt. II, but I sure look forward to PoE 2 (and if it ends up being crowdfunded, I'll have a good $250 ready for the guys.)

Well that was interesting, if only mostly anecdotal.

 

Also, no offense to the guy who said that it would be dull, but it was actually very funny, with the story of the space pig and the photoshop of Sagani with demon eyes taking the cake.

Oh God, I wish Watchers of Eternity was the actual title, shortened WOE, like in ... um ... Woedica! That would be epic. Instead I have to say Pillars of Eternity, which really sounds funny in german.

As for future stuff, I guess that one concept art implies that the next big threat might be humanoid giants?

 

As far as I'd interpret the concept art, that "humanoid giant" clearly died a looooong time ago. Also, fighting enemies that size would be looking ridiculous.

The ending of the white march implies that there will be some kind of giant like enemies in the second part, at least thats how I understood it. Although the way they were described was way smaller than the one in the picture.

Though "Säulen der Ewigkeit" sounds pretty awesome in contrast ;)
