The Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire reached $2.4M of funding last night, unlocking the Voice Acting stretch goal. It happened just in time for another hour-long Josh Sawyer Q&A stream, this time also featuring executive producer Adam Brennecke. It was a pretty interesting watch, and less controversial this time. The highlight of the stream, if I may say so myself, was Josh's reply to my follow-up question about the controversy from the previous stream, about 13 minutes in. Once again, if you don't want to watch it, a transcript has been made available on Reddit.

Shortly after the stream ended, Obsidian published a new Fig update to announce the achievement of the stretch goal. They don't have a new one for $2.8M yet, but the update does include a few other goodies. First of all, Josh Sawyer and the team have decided they're going to develop a Pillars of Eternity pen-and-paper RPG(!). The Starter's Guide for the new ruleset will be free for all backers at the $45 Premium Digital tier and above, and can also be acquired as a $7 add-on for lower tiers. Also available at those tiers (but not as an addon) is a cookbook by Tim Cain, who isn't otherwise working on Deadfire.

But the highlight of the update is probably the introduction of a new creature called the sand grub. Check out that animated GIF, which also demonstrates the game's new ground physics feature:


Deadfire's funding level continues to climb (have you checked out our fundraiser?) and in fact, a glance at its Fig investment page will show you that $3.2M is probably already guaranteed. Coming up next - a graphics-related update by Lead Artist Kaz Aruga, and sometime later on, an update about the game's main city, Neketaka.
