Obsidian Asks Gamers: What Should We Create?



/ 7 years ago

It seems “Kickstarter fever” is spreading to other developers. Following news that Double Fine Productions’ unnamed adventure title generated over $1 million in fan-funding in only 24 hours, Obsidian Entertainment is now seriously considering tapping into the same funding scheme. But what should they make? Well, that’s where you come in. The developer is asking for suggestions. How about Neverwinter Nights 3? Or maybe… something similar to Planescape: Torment 2?

Obsidian Entertainment’s creative director, Chris Avellone, made it clear on the official forums that he is interested in pursuing a fan-funded video game:
“The idea of player-supported funding is… well, it’s proof certain genres aren’t dead and sequels may have more legs than they seem. And the idea of not having to argue that with a publisher is appealing.

Out of curiosity, if Obsidian did Kickstart a project, what would you want to see funded?”
Interestingly, Avellone was the lead developer of Black Isle Studios’ classic RPG, Planescape: Torment, hence the (awesome) suggestion in the lead paragraph. Maybe you should go over the forums right now and let him know that, yes, this is indeed a stellar idea.
