PILLARS OF ETERNITY
Publisher Paradox Developer Obsidian Entertainment
Format PC Release winter
Obsidian’s top-down RPG shows what happens when you pitch a Kickstarter on a single and specific promise. Scale back the visuals a bit and you’re looking at a game that could have come out during the Infinity Engine’s late-’90s heyday. Pillars
Of Eternity is text-heavy, tactical and fiercely old school, and the backers that poured in over $4 million in funding wouldn’t have it any other way.
