Project Eternity Becomes The Highest Funded Project On Kickstarter
The campaign has reached $3,376,000 with 19 hours remaining, already beating the record set by Tim Schafer’s studio when it concluded the campaign that brought mainstream attention to the crowd funding craze.
Eternity had an initial goal of 1.1 million, which was achieved in just about 24 hours, and Obsidian added stretch goals to the Kickstarter to encourage more support. The 3 million stretch goal brings in Strongholds, where players can apparently “undertake special quests, customize the contents of the stronghold and the surrounding environment, and engage in light strategic gameplay between adventures.”
There is a final goal called “Big Big City” will be added if the campaign reaches $3.5 million and bring a large city reminiscent of Baldur’s Gate and Dungeons & Dragons’ Athkatla to the game.
