    We are excited to announce the first stretch goals for Project Eternity!

    1.1 million, Base Goal – Achieved!
    Base game includes three races, five classes, and five companions. We have ideas for these, but we want to hear your opinions on what you'd like to see. Stay tuned to Kickstarter, our website, and our forums to join in on the conversation.

    1.4 million, New Playable Race, Class, and Companion!
    Expands your options for character creation and adds a companion of the new class.

    1.6 million, a Mac Version of Project Eternity and The Story Grows!
    We've listened and we’ll make a Mac version of the game at this tier. We're also going to add a new major storyline along with new quests, locations, NPCs, and unique loot (special histories everyone?).

    1.8 million, New Playable Race, Class, and Companion!
    The options grow for your main character and the roster of your motley crew expands with the addition of a new companion from the selected class.

    2.0 million, Player House!
    Get your own house in the game that you can customize, store equipment in, and where your companions hang out, or, as the elves say, "chillax".

    2.2 million, a new Region, a new Faction and another new Companion! And, dare we say it... ? LINUX!
    Great news, everyone! For the Tarball Knights of Gzippia out there, we'll be adding Linux support!
    Also, the world of Project Eternity grows in a major way with the inclusion of a whole new faction and the territory it holds. This adds new NPCs, quests, magic items, and hours of gameplay. And yes, you got it, another companion.

    2.4 million and beyond! Coming Soon!

    We've been listening to your feedback, and have the following announcements:

    * DRM Free: We are looking into it! Please check back for updates.
    * Digital Only Tiers are coming!
    * PayPal is coming asap. Please be patient!
    * New $5k Tier. We are looking into a new $5k tier since it sold out so quickly! We are looking into equivalent alternatives.

    Thank you fans!

    This and DoubleFine are the only 2 kickstarters I've done. Threw $20 at it.

    OK the one million bucks thing was pretty cool

    But now this is just them going, "oh shit we got 1 million pretty easy, let's get MORE MONEY"

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    well...yeah

    that's kind of the whole point, innit

  • KanaKana Registered User regular
    Well, I admit when I wrote that I hadn't looked at the site, and seen that the 20 dollar level is a digital copy of the game. I was assuming it was a more bullshitty type of reward, which I've seen before on kickstarter and been thoroughly annoyed at. So, I rescind my bitching, mostly.

    Although on a separate point, I hope the 1k level pledgers all name their NPCs super stupid names. Please kind adventurers, you have to rescue my son Goku! The evil bandit king Sexy Furtimes has kidnapped him!

    I agree on the latter name, but the first one is awesome, especially if it is someone's son who is reffered to as son Goku.

    From Twitter, 8 hours ago: @TrentOster The iOS build is not approved. We've found a crash bug and had to re-submit, which pushes us to the back of the line. I'd guess next week.

    @TrentOster: We have to restart the iPad submission process again. We've got a couple more showstoppers. First we have to fix, then test then re-submit

    But the Windows version is out! Anyone tried it yet?

    I'm downloading it right now but I have effectively no bandwidth on my connection for no reason that I can determine

    current rate: 20 k/s

    so I'll let y'all know how it is sometime after new year's

  • BucketmanBucketman Call me SkraggRegistered User regular
    I have it. Its fun! The improvements really help and it feels weird having all this screen space opened up

    okay so I was able to finish downloading and start playing. it's good! the new cutscenes look a lot nicer than the old 3d ones, the UI is clean but perhaps a little too heavy-handed with the gilding. so far I'd have to say the most improvements were given to the inventory screen, which now shows stuff like THAC0, damage done, and gives a breakdown of what is subtracting from your AC.

    downside: because it's still the Infinity engine it has some graphical issues with newer cards. specifically, you need to turn off v-sync and triple buffering if you normally use them. also I'm having issues with the sound. for whatever reason a lot of voice gets clipped after about half a second or doesn't play at all; I'll see if there's a fix but I doubt it.

  • StraightziStraightzi Here we may reign secure, and in my choice, To reign is worth ambition though in HellRegistered User regular
    Well they added all of the 2 classes to 1 I believe

    And like a couple new kits I think?

  • LegbaLegba He did. Registered User regular
    I've rolled up like three characters so far without leaving Candlekeep, because I just can't decide on what to play.

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    I guess I had better get this then

    Also Legba roll a wizard

    1hp at the start

    play balls deep

    Ugh I wish I had a device that could play this

  • LegbaLegba He did. Registered User regular
    Fuck, the last time I played this I had the 2nd edition books next to me and now I remember why. I just rolled a pretty awesome half-elf fighter/Druid, put two points in scimitars, two points in sword and shield mastery, and then once I got into the game I realised that the only shield I'm allowed to wear is a buckler. God damnit.

  • JarsJars Registered User regular
    fighter/druid can wear every shield

  • LegbaLegba He did. Registered User regular
    Woo! Yeah I just realised I was being silly about the interface. For some reason it won't let you put a shield on if you have a two-handed weapon in one of your quick weapon slots. Surely they should be load outs? Oh well, old school game.

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    yeah you should be able to use a regular shield like Jaheira does

    you sure it's not something else affecting your ability to equip the gear?

    Yeah, they couldn't handle that back in 1998.

  • ShortyShorty touching the meat Intergalactic Cool CourtRegistered User regular
    they've released a few patches since this came out, and now I can categorically say that if you think there is any point at which you might conceivably want to play BG again (or if you haven't already, in which case what the hell is your problem) then you should go and buy this right now
