The Pillars Of Eternity Arrives Winter 2014
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Obsidian Entertainment has revealed a Winter 2014 release window for its upcoming Kickstarter Pillars of Eternity RPG. The announcement also includes artwork for characters, areas, and creatures, as well as a video of the Death Godlike race.

To kick things off this week, we'd like to show you all some of the awesome new Godlike variants Dimitri has finished up - the Death Godlike. As we've mentioned before in previous updates, the Godlike are people that were "blessed" before birth by one or more of the deities of the world. Godlike manifest their divine heritage in a variety of ways, and in the case of the Death Godlike that heritage can be seen through their wicked looking horns and the misting darkness that shrouds their visage.
 
Another type, the Earth Godlike, can be seen in some new portrait variants that Polina whipped up. These are just a few of the combinations that will be available to use for your character during the game.
Check out the update at the link below.

The Book Of Unwritten Tales 2 Kickstarter To Fund "More"
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

KING Art Games recently started a new Kickstarter campaign to help fund The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, and have already surpassed the original $65,000 goal. The new funds will allow the developers to expand upon the core game to include a variety of improvements and additions to the point-and-click sequel.

The next installment in the acclaimed BoUT-series will be unleashed  beginning of 2015 and it will be filled to the brim with puzzles, eccentric characters and the trademark BoUT-humor. But we want to do more; more epic, more shiny, more community involvement, more... of everything!

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2

After "The Critter Chronicles" explored the past of our heroes, we wanted to continue the epic story of The Book of Unwritten Tales 1 and show their future adventures. But we have taken our time, because expectations are high – both our own and from the community.

In our humble opinion, these are the key ingredients for a great BoUT2 game:

  • A fantasy adventure story with about 20 hours of pointing and clicking
  • The trademark BoUT-humor, lovingly spoofing WoW, LotR, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Discworld, D&D, The Hobbit and many more
  • Hundreds of weird, yet oddly logical puzzles and our well-proven "Multi-Character-Gameplay"
  • The established four playable characters Wilbur, Nate, Ivo und Critter
  • Numerous beautiful locations, improved through today's computer alchemy - and your pledge! (see Goals - Projection Mapping)
  • An ensemble of quirky characters, both well-established and hot off the drawing board
  • An epic soundtrack with many new compositions
How and when will BoUT2 be made available?
    Thanks to our brothers in arms at Nordic Games, the core game is already fully funded and will be released beginning of 2015. It will be out on PC, Mac, Linux, in English and German, and there will be a DRM-free version available (boxed and digital).

    In fall 2014 we will make the game available chapter by chapter via Steam Early Access. All backers who have pledged $25 or more automatically have the opportunity to receive the game via Steam Early Access for free.

    The full game consists of five chapters, each with a playtime of around 3 to 4 hours, so just like BoUT1 it will be one of the biggest adventure games out there. It will be big and it will be wicked. But we would love to push it even further – and that’s where you come in.

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 Kickstarter campaign concludes on March 23. For more information follow the link below.
