With less than 24 hours left to go for the Project Eternity Kickstarter
, Obsidian Entertainment's RPG is now the most backed video game Kickstarter campaign ever.
Double Fine Adventure previously held the record
, having pulled in $3.33 million by the end of its pledge period. Now, Project Eternity
has pushed past that total and currently sits at $3.46 million with more than 12 hours to go.
The game's project director Josh Sawyer recently told Gamasutra
that the success of Project Eternity
shows that making games as broadly-appealing as possible isn't necessarily the ideal strategy anymore.
