Update #19 - (Updated Oct 11) $2.6M Achieved! Adventurer’s Hall in! Full List of Rewards at Every Tier, Art for T-Shirts and Mouse Pad

Another stretch goal down! We are happy to announce that we’ve made our $2.6M stretch goal counting both Kickstarter and PayPal backers!

We have a lot of great stuff planned over the next six days. Josh is doing a lore update tomorrow along with some other BIG announcements, we are organizing an AMA over on reddit so everyone can ask Tim, Josh, Feargus and myself (Adam) a ton of questions, and we are getting our crazy ideas put together for the live stream of the last hours of the campaign next Tuesday.

Along with this update, we wanted to get some housekeeping out of the way. First off, we get asked a lot about what is in each of our reward tiers. You can find the full list farther down in this update. We are going to keep this list constantly updated, so if you ever need to refer to it, just come back to this update.

We are also working on our main Kickstarter page to keep things organized and have a new stretch goal image that combines all the stretch goals that have been added.

The Chanter and Paladin classes are up next at $2.7M, and the talented George Ziets will be joining the team if we hit $2.8m! With each stretch goal hit not only are we adding a new feature, we are also making the entire game larger. The additional money raised lets us add designers, artists, animators, and programmers to help build this incredible new world we are creating. This means adding more reactive quests, choice and consequence opportunities, a varied bestiary, memorable characters, adventure areas, and combat abilities.

New Add-On

Due to popular demand and for a limited time, we are offering the ability to add our first expansion pack, due out approximately six months after Project Eternity ships. Any money contributed to add-on the expansion now will be used to make the main game larger. The expansion budget is not being created by money from this Kickstarter.

  • Digital Download of Expansion Pack + $20 (included in tiers $165 and above)

We will be sweetening the $165 reward tier with something extra in the upcoming days as well.

Comments

    1. Creator William on October 12, 2012

      Just added $20 to my pledge. Now rubbing hands eagerly in anticipation of my boxed CE and the digital EXP.

    2. Creator Ming Xu on October 12, 2012

      Is there going to be a level editor/toolset for this game? I would love to be able to build my modules similar to neverwinter nights 2.

    3. Creator virodhi on October 12, 2012

      @Jon

      No, you're still probably going to end up paying customs fees for an overseas package, but that's not Obsidian's fault. Also, as a company, they have to declare the contents of the package accurately. To do otherwise would be mail fraud, and the powers that be are Not Amused by such things when they find out.

      Of course, now I have a mental image of Josh, Feargus and crew knee-deep in boxes and goodies in the last, feverish weeks before launch. "No, no. We are TOTALLY private individuals sending out gifts to our...er...thousand or so friends all over the world. Nothing suspicious here. Move along!"

    4. Creator Erik Grape ⊂ Orders aplenty on October 12, 2012

      Would have loved to see a signed poster at the $250 or $500 tier. Oh well :)

    5. Creator James on October 12, 2012

      those are pretty boring stretch goals, bummer :(

    6. Creator Trister - OO's Tormented Master Wetboy on October 11, 2012

      @ kira

      no, obsidian has said in the comments that they're going to fund it themselves. comes from feargus.

    7. Creator Kira Hatfield on October 11, 2012

      Will the expansion have it's own kickstarter? I would love to see it happen and get it but cash is getting short and it would be great to be able to do later

    8. Creator Jon C - OOoE's Lurking Writer on October 11, 2012

      Oh, and is there any chance of actually having the soundtrack / various other 'digital' goodies on a disc / flash drive (or even a PE-themed Mimobot-like flash drive)?

    9. Creator Jon C - OOoE's Lurking Writer on October 11, 2012

      I'm on the fence between $250 and $500 - there just doesn't seem to be that much of an incentive to make the jump, to be honest.

      The following doesn't seem worth $250 to me but that's all you get for doubling your pledge...
      "Your name and a personalized message on a memorial stone in-game.
      Full Color Printed Hardcover Project Eternity Collector's Book signed by the development team.
      Gold Pledge VIP Forum Badge.
      Gold Pledge Special Thanks in-game credits."

      On a slightly different note - regarding international shipping, does the $30 cost mean that I finally *won't* have to pay Parcelforce / HMRC in the UK just to receive the package? Only, they're liable to charge an additional ~£30 based on previous experience importing items from the USA. Please write the word "GIFT" all over the packaging when it's time to send...

      Apart from that - everything you guys are doing so far sounds *exactly* like the kind of game I loved and still love to play.

    10. Creator TrueStoryGuy on October 11, 2012

      The early backers get the game for $20. The rest of the backers get the game for $25. Then, after release, customers can get the game for $30+ (Obsidian has said all the backers are getting a discount). Obsidian will then release a full expansion, not DLC, 6 months later for only $20, the usual price for an expansion. I see no issues with the price here.

    11. Creator Lucreto on October 11, 2012

      A physical strategy guide for an add and a collectors guide with all the names in the back please as add on..

    12. Creator № 22 on October 11, 2012

      I'm with Andrew on this one. Unless the expansion will be so massive that it basically amounts to a sequel, there's no reason for the price to be this high relative to the original. Since I'm on the early bird tier myself, it's the exact same price as the full game.

      This is especially problematic since we know absolutely nothing about the expansion. We only have very limited knowledge about the game itself at this stage, and Obsidian have barely begun making it. So how can we be expected to shell out twenty bucks for the add-on?

    13. Creator Paul Dunnells on October 11, 2012

      Thank you Obsidian for listening!

      I am very pleased that you added the Expansion Pack option as an add-on, since so many of us requested it. I, for one, see the $20 price as very reasonable. Looking at other games, such as Spellforce and Spellforce 2, their expansions were almost as expensive as the original game when they first came out. Anyone is more than welcome to not opt for the expansion and wait for a bargain price later on down the road.

      You do have to run a business after all.

      Cheers,
      -Paul D.

    14. Creator Andrew on October 11, 2012

      A copy of the game costs a $25 pledge - $20 if you got the early bird. And yet, the add-on for the expansion pack is $20?! The math there seems a bit off. Should have been $5-10. Guess I'll just wait for release and/or sale.

    15. Creator Nick Hanson on October 11, 2012

      @Philomorph I realize it's not a store. When you buy something from a store, even a very long preorder, you are guaranteed to get it (or get your money back). On kickstarter you are not. Even though this project long ago met its funding goal something catastrophic could still happen and backers could end up with absolutely nothing. In return for that risk we backers typically get as you say "some sweet rewards" which is why I expect what I get from kickstarter to be better than what someone who does not take the risk and just waits for the game gets. I'm happy with my pledge itself and I'll likely get the expansion eventually but I just don't feel $20 for an expansion is such a "sweet reward" and I voiced my opinion to that effect. You are of course free to disagree but I believe the expression of our opinions is the point of having these comments.

    16. Creator Frank Talbot on October 11, 2012

      Did they say approximately when the Beta would be released? +$25 is a lot if the Beta only comes out a few weeks before release, but would be interesting if it's coming out in 2013.

    17. Creator Sasha Martin on October 11, 2012

      An option to get the soundtrack as an add-on similar to the expansion would be great too

    18. Creator Marcin Wolny on October 11, 2012

      Philomorph - let's face it. This might be a case with small companies, but if something in a size of Obsidian wants to create a game and runs it through a kickstarter: IT'S NOTHING ELSE THEN A PREORDER with extremely long wait period.

    19. Creator Philomorph on October 11, 2012

      Boy you just can't please some people. Nick, KICKSTARTER IS NOT A STORE. It's a way to support creative developers and get some sweet rewards while doing it.

      If you are happy to pay $25 to support this project and get a free copy of the game later, then great. If you aren't interested in kicking in another $20 to support them more (and get another great bonus) that's cool too.

    20. Creator Nick Hanson on October 11, 2012

      So the whole game costs $25 (or $20 each if you get 3) which I assume is a Kickstarter deal and it will be more expensive upon release. The expansion costs basically the same as the whole game and if that's likewise a kickstarter deal it will cost even more on release?!? Maybe it's just me but while the game itself feels like a steel and I'm happy to back it the expansion doesn't seem like a deal at all. Hopefully the main game has enough content that I'll just wait for a sale on the expansion to pick it up for less than this.

    21. Creator Aleister Crow on October 11, 2012

      Added on $20 for the expansion.

      It's been a long loooong time since I've been this excited about a game.

    22. Creator Brett Morehouse on October 11, 2012

      +20 USD for expansion ;)

      Great update. I was hoping for an expansion add-on to any tier.

    23. Creator cichy on October 11, 2012

      +20
      Can't wait :)

    24. Creator Dennis Jacques on October 11, 2012

      I'm a little disappointed if those are the final designs of the Tshirts. I was really hoping for the simple Jormungandr (snake biting its tail) design.
      I'll definitely still be wearing it but I really want to find a Jormungandr shirt now!

      that is an interesting question too, would be good to get an answer to both questions

    26. Creator Quasi on October 11, 2012

      At the 165 USD digital tier, does that mean I get 2 copies of the core game and 1 copy of the upcoming expansion?

    27. Creator Matthew Farmery on October 11, 2012

      hi not posted here for a while, glad that this project is doing really well, do have a question for someone that can answer, I pledged for the $80 tier that includes 2 copies of the game, if I up my pledge to +$20 to get the expansion, does this apply to one or both digital copies in the $80 tier? as I'm gifting my second key to a friend, so while I am interested in the expansion, $40 is a bit much to add one, so I would rather wait and get the expansion later, but if one expansion upgrade applies to both keys, I might upgrade, just wanted some confirmation before I do mind

    28. Creator LosT_SouL_VL on October 11, 2012

      Nice new add-ons, especially the expansion pack.

    29. Creator Justin Mann on October 11, 2012

      What happened to 2x digital downloads for the $250 tier? That was a fairly strong motivator for me - the idea being I'd get some nice gifts for friends to enjoy it who otherwise wouldn't.

    30. Creator Alex Cooksey on October 11, 2012

      Nice update guys - makes everything much clearer.
      Back up to $100 for me and no physical goodies to have to buy , package and ship.

      Best of luck for the end of the kickstarter.

      @Richard Luijten - they said they mostly do housekeeping / cleaning stuff up in this update so...

    32. Creator kjrubberducky - Bath Toy of the O.O. on October 11, 2012

      Expansion as an add-on? I'm there!
      20 more bucks from me, making this the first time I have spent more than $60 dollars on a game.

      ...don't tell my wife....please....

    33. Creator BIG bad Bull on October 11, 2012

      I Have to say I like the ouroboros desing better.
      But maybe a dual sided print ouroboros in front and logon on back ?

    34. Creator Marcin Baran on October 11, 2012

      sweet guys:) Obsidian you are awesome for listening and responding so promptly to our queries:) I'll be adding the extra 20$ for the expanion as soon as i'll come back home from work today:) Can't wait for the screenshot now:P

    35. Creator Mirved on October 11, 2012

      Added 20 for the expansion :)
      Im geussing that add-on is going to give quite a boost to the total amount these last few days.

    36. Creator Malau on October 11, 2012

      Wow great update! I'm looking to bump up my pledge even more for the expansion.

      This is an amazing journey for me to see fellow supporters give so much love to this project.

    37. Creator Lars Møller on October 11, 2012

      @Grasher. Steam and GoG versions are alreasy implemented.

      Thank you very much for this awesome update - I have upped my pledge (again)

    38. Creator BlackThorne on October 11, 2012

      Well, great thing we took down another goal, but can you write somewhere (and update) how much did people give you with paypal? And how many people, so we see where are we on the track to another level of the dungeon. Now we can't say how much we have 'cause of that. And I'm very interested in these numbers. Thanks

    39. Creator Grasher on October 11, 2012

      Please add steam version. It's very comfortably to have all games in one place. + autoupdates and other steam services. I know, that steam takes part from your income, but the service it provides worth it. You can use Greenlight very easily, I think.

      Sorry for my English.

    40. Creator Sempavor - Bandit of the Obsidian Order on October 11, 2012

      What a great and useful update!
      @Gregoris Vishnumolakala: i think that after the campaign ends all of us will find a lot of info on the official website (http://eternity.obsidian.net/)! ;)

    41. Creator Richard Luijten on October 11, 2012

      Well this update is quite...insubstantial..especially for one in the last week of the kickstarter..
      Anyway, I just wanted to say I hope the t-shirt designs will change later and you'll give us backers a cool and unique looking shirt instead of a boring generic logo shirt.
      Aside from that I'm still crazy excited!

    42. Creator Gregoris Vishnumolakala on October 11, 2012

      Will we be getting regular updates after the Kickstarter backing period ends? I hope we arent kept in the dark until the game is released in 2014.

    43. Creator James Klingler on October 11, 2012

      Thanks for listening to the community!! I have added $20 for the expansion and can't wait for my collector's edition!

    44. Creator Christopher on October 11, 2012

      I Dont Buy a Extension, if the Game is Good in the Future, i think about Buying a Extenion ;)

    45. Creator Alfonso Hugo on October 11, 2012

      To all those looking how to get the +$20 expansion:
      You just need to add the amount. Just don't change your reward tier.

      There will be a survey when the project ends to ask you how do you want to spend the surplus money.

      Hope this help.

    46. Creator Mohammed Ganai on October 11, 2012

      Cool. Any chance you will be listing Paypal tallies?

    47. Creator David "Ferakpsi" Gardner on October 11, 2012

      I'd love an add-on of the Cloth Map / Patch as well! Please!

    48. Creator Christopher G. Morin on October 11, 2012

      I'm lost for words ! Thanks again !

    49. Creator Andrew Kozma on October 11, 2012

      Any chance of adding the cloth map as a physical add-on? I would pay extra for that, definitely.

    50. Creator Devon Rampe on October 10, 2012

      + $20 for the expansion! Thanks!
