Obsidian Is Now Working On A Kickstarter Project
Obsidian is working on an unspecified Kickstarter project. That much was confirmed in a tweet on Sunday in response to a question from a fan. “No news yet except we’re still working on it,” the tweet read, which means we know next to nothing other than they’re putting something together.
This is an interesting direction for Obsidian to take. While they have endured some recent setbacks – Dungeon Siege III for instance, which got middling critical reviews and sold less than a million copies, and just barely missing out on a royalties bonus thanks to the B- scores given to Fallout: New Vegas – they’re still working on South Park: The Game. So it’s unlikely they’ve been reduced to begging for kickstarter money.
It will be interesting to see just what they’ve got planned. Who knows, maybe they’re following the trend and looking to fund the revival of a long extinct gaming franchise. My money is on Fester’s Quest.
