Video game developer Obsidian has announced that its Kickstarter drive for Project Infinity has managed to get more than 50,000 backers and that the company would include a new dungeon in the game, called The Endless Paths of Od Nua, in order to celebrate the event.
The official description for the new area reads: “In the western reaches of the Dyrwood lies the Endless Paths, an ancient network of cobbled trails that wind through arches of dense overgrowth, twisting within the confines of a high castle wall as they make their way to the gates of iron-shuttered towers that jut forth from the interior.”
More information can be found on the official Kickstarter page for Project Eternity
At the moment, The Endless Paths of Od Nua will have three levels but it seems that the team will add one more level to explore for each additional 2,500 people who back Project Eternity.
Obsidian has also revealed that if the funding effort reaches a new threshold at $2.4 million (€1.84 million), the developer will add crafting and enchanting to the game, allowing players to create and modify their own equipment.
Already, the response to Project Eternity
has been overwhelming, with the full required funding obtained in three days and Obsidian now having more than double the money ready to fund the creation of their new game.
For those who are unable to contribute via Kickstarter, the company is also adding PayPal donations in the coming days.
Project Eternity is described as an old-school party-based role-playing game that will bring to mind the experiences that players had with titles like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale.
The game will use a whole new world, complete with interesting races and political factions and the expected launch date is set for April 2014.
