The lights are on
Obsidian has released a new screen shot for its upcoming highly successful Kickstarted RPG, Project Eternity.
This isn't the first time Obsidian has offered a look at the game, but it is the first media for Project Eternity in some time. The screenshot above is based on this concept art. The two look nearly indistinguishable.

Looks great. and I agree with LordCrash, nuff said.
The screenshot actually looks better than the concept art. They're obviously doing a good job on the graphical side of things.
omfg this looks so much like baldur's gate 3 i'm so happy it's glorious and the planescape one coming out too.. i foresee hundreds of hours lost in the future, if these games are are good as i hope HYPEHYPEHYPE
Obsedian is one of my favorite developers. I'm a proud kickstarter, and I can't wait to get my hands on this :)
Between the two of 'em, I'm more excited for Torment: Tides of Numenera. They both do the whole "2D art for backgrounds, 3D models for characters" thing, that looks really cool nowadays with modern tech, but from what we've seen of both of them so far, IneXile's game seems to be more lively, with more animations going on to break up the static nature of the backgrounds. Admittedly, there's still not that much to look at for either game yet, but IneXile's stuff just comes off as cooler at the moment.
I would love to see Square Enix make a contemporary Final Fantasy like this - like a new version of their PSX games. Seriously, applying new tech to old art styles usually results in some great, great stuff. Like games that do new, HD sprites (such as King of Fighters XIII and Guilty Gear Xrd). It's baffling to me that no one has thought to revisit this 2D/3D hybrid approach before - and that the only reason we're getting it now is because of budgetary ones. But it's still cool and I really want to see what Torment and Eternity turn into.
Proudly supported, eagerly awaiting this!
Reminds me of Dragon Age: Origins for some reason..
I did enjoy Baldurs Gate, so I will have to stay up to date on this!
