Obsidian's New Isometric RPG On Kickstarter
This scoop is from Friday, folks. So, sorry I'm late with that. Apparently, Obsidian Entertainment passed along a Kickstarter announcement for Project Eternity, which was described as a "an isometric, party-based RPG set in a new fantasy world," which they say "pays homage to the great Infinity Engine games of years past: Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment."

At this point, the effort has reached 37,232 backers and $1,477,683 (pledged of $1,100,000 goal).

Check out a bit more info about the game:

Combat uses a tactical real-time with pause system - positioning your party and coordinating attacks and abilities is one of the keys to success. The world map is dotted with unique locations and wilderness ripe for exploration and questing. You'll create your own character and collect companions along the way ' taking him or her not just through this story, but, with your continued support, through future adventures. You will engage in dialogues that are deep, and offer many choices to determine the fate of you and your party. …and you'll experience a story that explores mature themes and presents you with complex, difficult choices to shape how your story plays out.

We are excited at this chance to create something new, yet reminiscent of those great games and we want you to be a part of it as well.

Hm, I wonder when they plan to finish the development of this one. And, in relation to that, the name "Project Eternity" doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

I see this as a future for gaming development.
Unlike conventional methods here they have a direct line to target audiences plus start making money from the day 1. They are also pretty much forced to finish it due to how kickstarter projects are setup.
I have high hopes for this and a few others they have running... Broken Sword, Planetary Annihilation (looks awesome too)
  LostPcGamer: Planetary Annihilation was funded and looks promising…

Those of you who are hyped for this should keep an eye for Divinity Original Sin and Shadowrun Returns at the beginning of 2013.
