Obsidian's Kickstarter project, a roleplaying game with the working title Project Eternity, continues to see strong support from fans. The crowdfunding effort has surpassed $3M and has just passed $3.1M with just under two days left.

A sampling of the environment.

The passing of the 2.8M stretch goal added George Ziets, the creative lead on Neverwinter Nights 2. With the passing of $3M in funding, Strongholds have been added. According to Obsdian, "Some of you wanted something that went beyond the standard player house, allowing you to take control of a full stronghold and its surrounding lands. Well-done strongholds provide players with the ability to make large scale changes, undertake special quests, customize the contents of the stronghold and the surrounding environment, and engage in light strategic gameplay between adventures."

The next stretch goal is at $3.5M, which is doubtful just 45 hours left at the time of this articles writing. It will add a second big city: "We're going to have one big city in Project Eternity. Would you like two? If you take us on an exciting adventure to $3.5 Million, we will take you on an exciting adventure to another big city."

Obsidian also released a new Kickstarter video discussing the Lore of Project Eternity.

I think these Kickstarters are the way to go. What a way to get the gaming community to work together, and help with this one.

Crowd funding is one of the greatest thing that has ever happened to gaming.

For Obsidian that people know of and respect - yes - but for other upcomming not so famous game developers? I don't know. I think that crowd funding is a good alternative and good for raising the quality for niched productions but for bigger things and for unsecure things - it can be a bit too fickly...

They can start with smaller projects just like anyone else had to, nothing changes in that regard.
