    At that time people expected a game of that style (platformer, as it came to be known) to have 3 whole screens in a liner world (or a random one). 4 screens was really something to brag about. Pitfall! had 256. The above and below ground paths intersecting in various places effectively created a world that was not limited to 2D linear space. The game provided a limited number of lives and a time limit in which to explore this world. One could not just keep playing indefinitely using continues, saves, or retry points like most modern games (that SUCK). Only dedicated players could achieve the true distinction of actually completing this game. In some ways, Pitfall! is superior to many modern platformers. My only complaint about it, is having multiple lives. David Crane should have gone with his original plan and made it a 1-life game.

    Obsidian is back: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...oject-eternity

    Buck: What platforms are you targeting for Project Eternity and when do you anticipate releasing it? When the game is finished, what are your plans for distributing it and supporting it over the long-term?
    Feargus: First and foremost it is going to made on and for the PC (Windows). Our hope is to add Mac and Linux versions as we get farther along with the technology and based upon the success of the Kickstarter campaign.

    Nope, they've added a player house as a stretch goal, so it is guaranteed to bring in every single BioWare fan and at least $10 million.

    $2.2 Million will bring the Linux client.

    Anyone want to split a $10,000 donation with me to make Chris Avellone, Tim Cain, Josh Sawyer, and Feargus Urquhart play Shoots and Ladders?

    It just ended with $31,208. Ouch. I think there were multiple problems with it but this thread is probably not the place to discuss them.

    I'm super confident Project Eternity will easily reach the 2.2 million stretch goal to add Linux support. In fact, at the rate they're going they better start thinking up some more stretch goals for 2.4 million and beyond. I see this one finishing up in Double Fine Adventure and Wasteland 2 territory, that is to say beyond the 3 million mark, when it's all said and done.

    I just LOVE how these obsidian trash-generators set Linux support hostage to TWOFOLD of their base demand, just to wrap winelib around.

    Nevertheless, thanks for mentioning them...

    No Korn fans? *sigh*

    It's slowed down considerably since they posted their stretch goals. They need to clarify the game mechanics beyond the dialogs of Planescape, the combat of Icewind Dale, and the setting of Baldur's Gate. All we know is that it is a new RPG system that isn't D20.
