Obsidian are finished with their tribute to Infinity Engine games.
Developer Obsidian Entertainment and publisher Paradox Interactive have confirmed that the kickstarted RPG Pillars of Eternity has gone gold. And in just in time for next week's release. How convenient!
"Seeing Pillars of Eternity through has been an incredible journey for all of us at a deeply personal level," said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. "When we took our idea to Kickstarter, our fans got behind us more than we ever thought. It's been a blast to match their enthusiasm, see them cheer us on, and have them help to keep us on course every step of the way. It's crazy to think that more than two years have come and gone, but time flies that way when you are creating something as important as Pillars of Eternity has become to us."
"We knew, when we joined forces with Obsidian, that both the studio and the game were a perfect match for us," said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. "A core tenet at Paradox is staying closely connected to one's players and community, and we've watched Obsidian do exactly that. From the handling of their crowd-funding to their open dialogue with fans on their forums, Obsidian has been dedicated to fulfilling their promises to players, and we've been glad for the chance to help them do it. We're looking forward to working together with Obsidian for a long time to come."
Pillars of Eternity (or Project Eternity as it was known back then) is the tenth most funded Kickstarter of all times (second most funded in the video game category) and it will be out on March 26 for PC, Mac and Linux.
