After a successful Kickstarter campaign which broke records, Obsidian Project Eternity have now released a new updated showing a little of the effects you can expect from the new game and how they have been created.
Obsidian Project Eternity is an isometric, party-based computer RPG set in a new fantasy world and developed by Obsidian Entertainment.
Obsidian Project Eternity is due out on Windows,Linux and Mac at around this time next year and looks to be shaping up nicely, as always we will keep you updated as more information is released by the Obsidian Project Eternity development team. The Obsidian Project Eternity development team explains:
“Welcome. Today’s update is a big one, though not by volume of text. Today we’re showing you our game in action. Specifically, we’re showing what we’ve been doing for our exterior environments. The Infinity Engine games were known for their art, and we wanted to hit the high standard of visual quality established by games like the Icewind Dale series. We also wanted to introduce dynamic elements into the environment that were mostly absent from the classic games, like dynamic water, movement in foliage, and dynamic lighting of the scene.
In a 2D game, this required our programmers and artists to come up with some creative solutions. What they came up with surprised us initially and it continues to amaze us. While we are still working on refining some of the dynamic elements, we’re very happy with the progress we’ve been able to make and hope you feel the same way. Special thanks to Hector Espinoza, our lead environment artist, and Michael Edwards, our rendering programmer, who did a lot of amazing work to bring this environment to life.”
