Yeah, yeah, long time, no post. I've been busy working on some very cool projects, one of which is actually game-related, so I've reduced the amount I'm blogging.
In any case, I wanted to pop in and direct your attention to something I really want to succeed:
Obisidian has made some really great games, such as KotOR2, NWN2, Alpha Protocol, and Fallout: New Vegas. They've also got a lot of the team members (of Black Isle fame) from some of the old Infinity Engine games like Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment.
They announced a new Kickstarter project today, Project Eternity. You can read up on the Kickstarter page, but they essentially want to make something that hearkens back in spirit to those old Infinity Engine games, and I found myself absolutely overcome with a desire to give them my money. If this succeeds, it will be the manifestation of a pro-consumer model the likes of which are not only ideal but only possible in this modern age.
I love this. I want this. Take a look at this, and see if it's a good fit for you. I hope it is. If you're not sure, try some of the games I mentioned above and see what you think.
For now, while I wait for this to get funded, I'm gonna pre-load some Borderlands 2 and download some Black Mesa Source. This is going to be a great weekend!
Good luck, Obsidian, and please let me know if I can do anything to help!
