Hi Folks, I just signed on to the Obsidian forum. I am a backer at the Pillars 2 :Deadfire  Fig campaign. It has come to my attention that Obsidian has shown some interest in making a game in the Arcanum universe.  Activision owns the IP.  I have made a petition at change.org. For the time being the petition results will be forwarded to Activision's Investor Relations Department. The information can be found here. http://investor.acti...m/contactus.cfm I have been in contact with them by email notifying them of the petition.

 

I feel like there will be a lot interest in this here. Please feel free to sign and share with any friends, groups, and forums you think will be interested. If you do post at another site please share that information here so we don't spam a site or forum too much. Thank you

How are you not mentioning Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky (you know people who actually made Arcanum) in your pitch

 

Also, typos.

I specifically remember a series called Ultima which didn't get enough sequels. O_o

Oh, and Wing Commander. I miss you OSI. EA has forsaken us. Lol

Edit: Petition supported.

Hi Infinitron,

 

I did not mention Tim Cain, Leonard Boyarsky, or for that matter Jason D. Anderson because the Petition is for Activision to allow Obsidian to use the Arcanum IP. I did not want a convoluted pitch. I was also not aware that Tim Cain was involved with Obsidian at this time. Some of the people signing the petition have stressed their interest in Tim Cain working on a new Arcanum project. So it could very well happen, but I will leave those details to Obsidian. :) And thanks for pointing out the typos. I will try and correct any mistakes I spot.

 

Cheers

Ye... Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky are not mentioned at all in the petition and was Troika Games mentioned either?

It's their baby, not Black Isle's or Obsidian's

I mentioned Troika Games "This is a beautifully designed game in a Steam Punk world filled with magic and machines developed by Troika games." :)

In light of new information, and to address your concerns and criticisms, I have made some changes to the pitch. I have made more mention of Troika and the founding creators.
