Project Eternity

If you haven’t heard about this chances are that you don’t have a computer/Internet access or don’t play games. Even if that’s true, read on.

Project Eternity is an isometric, party-based computer RPG set in a new fantasy world developed by Obsidian Entertainment.

Obsidian Entertainment and our legendary game designers Chris Avellone, Tim Cain, and Josh Sawyer are excited to bring you a new role-playing game for the PC. Project Eternity (working title) pays homage to the great Infinity Engine games of years past: Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment.

Project Eternity aims to recapture the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia of classic RPG’s that we enjoyed making – and playing. At Obsidian, we have the people responsible for many of those classic games and we want to bring those games back… and that’s why we’re here – we need your help to make it a reality!

More details here. Make sure to read the updates, the developers explain a lot of the design ideas there.

Seriously, if you liked old-school CRPGs, give these men some money. The project got funded in just a day, but the more they gather the better it will be. The campaign ends in a week from now.

And if you were living under a rock and don’t know what Obsidian is or who these people are, you should feel bad. Then play Planescape: Torment. Then read this actual design document.

Lastly, some character concepts:
