This week's Project Eternity Kickstarter update
is about the Project Eternity documentary that was announced
during the Kickstarter campaign back in October. The update is pretty small, so I'll just quote the entire thing:
In Update #23
Feargus announced that Obsidian would fund a documentary of the making of Project Eternity without using a dime from the Kickstarter funding. Here's a behind-the-scenes of the behind-the-scenes and some other tidbits about the documentary.
We've been working with the documentary team, Tony Jacobsen and Michael Mitchell from Creative Lane Media
, for some time. Tony and Mike are very professional guys with years of experience making films, and have experience working with the games industry. They will be with following us with their fancy cameras for the entire production of Project Eternity.
Our documentary will be a full movie and released in its entirety when the game is complete. We are targeting a 45 minute film that covers the entire process of the making of Project Eternity from the early days of the Kickstarter, into preproduction, all the way through production to finishing it up and going gold. There will be footage from our team meetings, informal discussions, scrums, and major milestone events.
When can I get the Documentary? The documentary will be released when Project Eternity is finished. We will have more details when we get closer to the Project Eternity beta.
How do I get it?
If you already backed at the $20/$25 tier level (and Slacker Backers via PayPal thus far) and above you will be able to stream it. At the $35 tier level and above you will be able to download it, and at the $140 tier level (and physical tiers above) we will include a DVD / Blu-ray. You can still get access to the documentary stream if you donate to the project today via the Slacker Backer pledge at the Eternity website
Besides that, the update also reports on the continuation of Chris Avellone's Arcanum LP. Three new episodes in Season 0 of the LP have been uploaded. Apparently, these were recorded at the same time as the first three, so Chris is still playing like a noob in them. Here's the first of the three:
Stay tuned for next week's update, in which Obsidian will unveil Project Eternity's prototype demo.
