UPDATE: With $3,986,929 plus Paypal, the goal was easily reached. (PC, Project Eternity)

C'mon people. Force Chris Avellone to play Arcanum, dammit. (Pre-patch, of course.)

Last week I didn't see them making it to $3 million but they powered through that and on $3.7 million.

They have $130K in Paypal, too. So they're close.
Lucreto  +   701d ago
Didn't see the Paypal figures.

So its $3,930,000 now.

To bad it's Obsidian so the game is automatically doomed to be a buggy and broken mess like everything else that they touch. Such a waste of money...*sigh*

Hopefully they won't get rushed for once.

you clearly didn't play dungeon siege 3. also, they're building with this unity + their own toolsets, and the backgrounds are all 2D. this is a labor of love, with no publisher forcing it out the door within a 12 month window like kotor 2 and new vegas.

dungeon siege 3 was terrible and don't even get me started on those 3rd rate voice actors!

Obsidian is one of the worst developers on the planet, stop trying to defend them by crying about the time they get. If they can't do their job and do it properly then they should look elsewhere for employment, simple as that.

maybe you didn't like dungeon siege 3-- but it was definitely NOT a buggy game. if you think so poorly of them, why bother buying their games? why even bother commenting on stories like this? and the only reason i'm "crying" about how much time they get is because when your QA process gets axed, it's obviously going to have a massive negative impact on the final product. if you take the time to fully soak in their work, you'll find some of the best writing in the medium.

I don't mind if they didn't reach their final goal, if only barely. They already made huge and vast additions to the game that I'm insanely stoked to play it. I'm gonna be watching the development on this closely, and I gotta learn to be patient with it too.

They did reach their goal. $150K was also raised on Paypal - it counts.

This is like having a child.
How long? How long? April 2014.
