Okay, Obsidian (the people behind Icewind Dale 1 & 2, Planescape Torment, etc. -- you know what I'm talking about) have done it. They have a kickstarter project for the dream game of those yearning back to ye good old golden days of Baldur's Gate & co. The good news? They already have enough pledges to make the game. The other good news? If they get enough pledges, there'll be Linux version!

So get there and pledge, if this is what you want to see.

And tell the good news to other Linux CRPG enthusiasts!

Obsidian has chosen Unity engine for Project Eternity and removed Linux support from the stretch goals -- instead they are just going to support it. :)

An article on this game project: http://www.overclockers.com/kickstarter-and-game-development-highlighting-games-coming-to-linux-part-1 -- make sure you check out the first screenshot.

Also, if you haven't yet pledged anything, this would be a good time -- the final stretch goals are quite cool and this game is certainly turning out to be just the thing the crpg scene has been missing for some years now -- not to mention, of course, that it'll be released for Linux as well! ;)
