“We launched the Kickstarter campaign for what we were calling ‘Project Eternity’ three and a half years ago. It’s surreal to think about just how much this game has meant to us at Obsidian, and how much it’s changed us as a developer,” said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. “Working so closely with our backer community was a major part of the process, and helped us understand precisely what our fans wanted. Now, with Pillars of Eternity winning awards and standing as one of the biggest RPG releases of 2015, I’m proud to say we fulfilled our promise to our backers, and then some. Best of all, we’ve got plenty more stories we plan to tell within the world of Pillars of Eternity.

paradox interactive received two nominations at dice awards

Paradox Interactive today #announced that two of their published games have been #nominated by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) for the 19th Annual D.I.C.E. #Awards. Cities: Skylines, the city-building game developed by Colossal Order, is a nominee for “Strategy/Simulation Game of the Year,” and Pillars of Eternity, developed by Obsidian Entertainment, is a nominee for “Role-Playing/Massively Multiplayer Game of the Year.” Both games were released by Paradox in 2015 to critical acclaim, and highlight an incredible year of growth and success for the Sweden-based publisher.

“Paradox had a year like no other during 2015,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “Just with regards to our releases, we had our fastest-selling game in company history – Cities: Skylines – and our highest-rated game among critics – Pillars of Eternity – both come out in the same year. Colossal Order and Obsidian are two of the best teams we’ve had the honor to work with this year, and they’re the kind of development partner that Paradox is dedicated to supporting. Now we’ve been nominated for two awards representing the finest achievements in games. Paradox has had a record-breaking year, and I couldn’t be more proud of every single person here who made this possible.”

The winners of the 19th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards will be revealed at the awards ceremony on Thursday, Feb. 18, at The Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas at the conclusion of the 2016 D.I.C.E. (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) Summit.

Pillars of Eternity is an RPG inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment, which features an original world and game system that evokes and improves upon the traditional computer RPG experience. Funded via Kickstarter in late 2012, raising $4.5 million through both backer pledges on Kickstarter and Obsidian’s own website, Pillars of Eternity provides RPG fans with a unique experience, driven by classic aesthetics, modern design, and a deep, engaging world for players to explore.

Cities: Skylines is a modern take on the classic city simulation, introducing new gameplay elements to realize the thrill and hardships of creating and maintaining a real city whilst expanding on some well-established tropes of the genre. Boasting a fully realized transport system, Cities: Skylines also includes the ability to mod the game to suit your play style as a counter balance to the layered and challenging simulation.
