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.

[UPDATE: The Kickstarter has now finished, with a total of $3.99 million in pledges donated.]
