Pillars of eternity

Pillars of Eternity is a Kickstarter RPG that grabbed massive funding and attention, and then did the right thing and disappeared off the radar to go make the game. The game has since been delayed into next year, but it’s ready for pre-order and showing off some mighty impressive gameplay and design.

Here is the latest trailer from Pillars of Eternity (and for those without YouTube access, you can head over here):

With a promise of returning to the roots of the RPG genre, I like the look and feel of this game; I just wish it weren’t PC only. I know, PC master race and whatnot, but these are the types of games that I prefer to play on my couch with a controller. I suppose I will need to just get a controller for the computer and play using that, but it just doesn’t quite feel the same. Perhaps I’ll grab it through Steam and then play it through a laptop?

I think the part I’m most excited about it the upgradable base. Oh, and the branching story lines. Those are two of my favorite things in RPGs, and it looks like Pillars of Eternity will be getting them right.

You can go pre-order Pillars of Eternity and get some mystery items. Of course, if you backed the project on Kickstarter, you will automatically get the pre-order bonuses for free. At least this is nice for those people who missed out on funding the project originally – you can still throw your money at it.

Are you a backer already, or will you be giving them your money after the fact? Does this look like a return of all things awesome to RPGs, or are you more interested in games like Dragon Age: Inquisition and The Witcher 3?
