Obsidian releases first in-game video of ‘Project Eternity’

Since its absurdly successful Kickstarter campaign, Obsidian’s Project Eternity has been chugging along week by week. We haven’t seen much in-game footage, short of a single screenshot released a few months ago, but Obsidian has finally decided to show the in-game world in action.

Project lead Josh Sawyer introduces the video, and explains what’s happening. Although there’s no actual gameplay, we see the dynamic nature of the environment. Light sources move, water levels rise and fall, and various bits of shrubbery sway in the wind. It’s all the more impressive when you realize everything is technically done in 2D. Watch for yourself below.

It may not seem like much, but it’s great to see the folks at Obsidian putting that 3.9 million to work. Project Eternity is scheduled to hit the PC in early 2014.
