Paradox Interactive Signs Pillars of Eternity

The game was funded via Kickstarter in late 2012, raising $4.5 million through both backer pledges on Kickstarter and Obsidian's own website
Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive have announced a partnership for Pillars of Eternity, an RPG inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment. Paradox will assume key marketing and distribution responsibilities for the title, which will support Obsidian by allowing them to concentrate entirely on development.
