The lights are on
Some may look at Obsidian Entertainment's catalog of games and say that developing a 2D RPG based on South Park must be a piece of cake, but the team says it presents itself as a "different" challenge. Between converting their Dungeon Siege III engine to present a 2D world, precisely recreating the look of the show, and ensuring that players are laughing all the way through, there are a handful of hurdles that Obsidian Entertainment must clear before the game is on store shelves. The man overseeing the development of this delicate project is Chris Parker, and you can check out the video below to learn how Obsidian is tackling the challenge of crafting a massive and comedic RPG.

I think that there is a good chance that this game will be good. However, I will still be waiting to see more before I make any kind of judgement.
It's going to be hilarious.
Just think ff 1 with roshambos
Obsidian is developing this? Hhhhhmmmmmmmmmm............
It sounds like they're really trying to capture the southpark we know and love and make it really fun to play. I really hope they succeed! :)
As an avid fan of South Park, I'm really excited for this game. Obsidian does a consistently good job with properties that are handed to them from other studios, and I have faith that they will put out another fun experience. Also, it's nice to hear that Matt and Trey are fairly well involved with the process.
I've liked/loved south park for a long time since it first started in 1999 it was always so great in many ways, and thank goodness that its obsidian that got the license for the South park RPG. i know from what i've played that obsidian CAN make great RPG's and i've loved every one i've played from them! i have alot of confidence that they are going to make great use of this license
I think this game will be amazing but I have my doubts about Obsidian......Every game they release is SUPER buggy but I hope this one isnt
It seems that there are daily updates on this game - there must be some incentive to GI.
That said, my hype went from non-existent to actually toying with the idea of purchase. Just because a few years ago, I used this show to twist political events into humor for a project in political science. Obviously, I did not take the class seriously, but the idea I had was executed in a satisfying way along with a devotion to this show and a nice grade to follow.
I do look forward to this game, but I just look at Obsidian as... not wholly good.
Wow, he was more candid about internal dissent than I expected. I was also surprised that they had to hire such a (apparently) big chunk of the art design team for this game instead of drawing on internal staff. All that being said, I'm still really looking forward to this game. I could be dead wrong, but I think this game is going to be amazing, niche perhaps, but amazing nonetheless.
This is one of the first games I'll buy on release because of the development stories.
