Obsidian releases first footage of Project Eternity

Project-Eternity-BannerHey, so remember Project Eternity?  That Kickstarter campaign that Obsidian put together last year?  Raised about a bazillion dollars?  Well, they’re finally ready give us a look at the game itself.  And I gotta say, it’s pretty darned impressive.  Read on for the details.

Every week on their homepage, Obsidian gives an update to fans about the status of Project Eternity.  Sometimes it’s concept art, sometimes it’s musings on the combat of the game, sometimes it’s just a look behind the scenes of the studio.  This week, however, they had something special for us; actual footage from the game.  The video shows off all the progress the team has made making the exterior enivoronments come alive.  Dynamic lighting, flowing water, and moving foliage is all on display, and looking phenomenal.  And keep in mind, this is a 2D game, folks.  Everything you’re about to see is running without any 3D rendering or graphical acceleration.  Check it out.

Pretty sick, right?  Do people still use “sick” as a complimentary adjective?  Anyway, if you never bothered to get in on the Kickstarter campaign, you can still secure a copy of Project Eternity for yourself through Obsidian’s “Slacker Backer” program.  Just look for it on the right of the project’s homepage.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
