Project Eternity

I know, you’ve seen this picture a lot. Still nice though, isn’t it?

The latest Project Eternity update celebrates one year since the RPG was launched by Obsidian on Kickstarter. It includes a Q&A with developer Hector Espinoza, promises of a major update to come before Thanksgiving and details of an upcoming backer portal (which will consolidate project updates, and show backers how much they pledged to the game.)

That’s all quite interesting, but an additional snippet of information appears to be available from the posted screenshots of said backer portal. If you read the (rather small, due to the resolution) text on the images, it refers to the game as Pillars of Eternity at various points. It appears this is, at the very least, a new internal name for the game.

In the first image, the text says “Introducing Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity” down the right-hand column. Whereas in the second shot, it states “Welcome to the Pillars of Eternity Backer Portal.” Click to make them both larger, obviously.

    I was wondering about what they’re doing with this game. They’ve had a very successful Kickstarter campaign.

    DavidTheSlayer: oh isn’t it obvious. Other than drawing a few paintings and such they’ve been making that nifty site. Money well spent i say ;)

    I think it’s sound. Definitely wouldn’t find it odd if it were named that, other than “Project Eternity”. I even think there is a slight phonetic resemblance to “Baldur’s Gate”. Pillars, Baldur’s… Anyway, sounds very oldschool and big.
