Obsidian Kickstarter closes with nearly $4 million

Project Eternity surpasses Double Fine record by more than $600k

Obsidian Entertainment's Project Eternity Kickstarter campaign has closed with just under $4 million.

Project Eternity surpassed Double Fine Adventure's $3.3 million haul yesterday, setting a new record for a game project on the popular crowd-funding platform. Obsidian's final total was $3,986,929 from 73,986 backers.

Project Eternity's final $4 million stretch goal - which promised to "enhance the whole game," including "live instrumentation" on the game's soundtrack - was not met.

"Unfortunately this couldn't last for an Eternity, but it was an absolutely incredible run," a statement on the game's Kickstarter page read. "A profound thanks to all of you."
