The Kickstarter trend for funding major new PC game releases continued this weekend. On Friday, Obsidian Entertainment announced their Kickstarter campaign for Project Eternity, a fantasy RPG game that has team members who have worked on some of the most acclaimed RPG released of the past two decades, including Chris Avellone, Tim Cain, and Josh Sawyer.
The Kickstarter campaign had a highly ambitious $1.1 million goal, but as it turned out, Obsidian had nothing to worry about. That very high goal was achieved in just over 24 hours. As of this writing, the game has now raised $1.3 million
Obsidian has already established some stretch fund raising goals, which include adding a new playable race, companion and class to the game if it hits $1.4 million, and yet another new playable race, companion and class if they reach $1.8 million. The team will add a Mac port, along with a new storyline, if it achieves $1.6 million.
There's still 30 days to go before Project Eternity (which we suspect is just the code name for the final title of the game) ends its Kickstarter campaign. The team is also planning to accept donations via PayPal for those people who are unable to use Kickstarter and will also establish new donation tiers as well.
