I'm a little unsure if it is ok to post about a kick-starter project, since it could be seen as advertising. I'm not involved with Obsidian though, just a RPG fan that saw this and want to spread the word. So I hope it is fine to post about it.
Obsidian started a Kickstarter a few days ago to get funding for an RPG like the ones, I think many of us remember with joy (Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape:Torment).
You can find more information here:
Personally I'm very exited about this one. If they can really create a spiritual successor to games like Baldur's Gate and Planescape:Torment, I know where my time will be spent
Part of me is sort of happy they were not able to find a publisher for this project, since I hope the kickstarter can give them free hands to create a good game and not be forced to 'put in clowns, because they are fun' or 'no sex, because..because..just because'.
Anyways, I just wanted to share this with you guys, since I figured some of you would be happy to see it
