    Obsidian is accumulating new audience which they will turn into rpg fans with their later projects.

    Well they are being smart about it. You already have people blaming Microsoft about it, even though they specifically said that this was started prior to the purchase.
    They know their fans and what the expectation is for an Obsidian game. They've already made the Pathfinder card game and Armored Warfare. So at least to me this is not that shocking.

    It seems like Bobby Null is working on the game as well, or at least in one of the articles it says it was him and Brennecke who came up with the idea sometime after Deadfire.

    These guys have been working on Pillars franchise for half a decade. I don't think it is that surprsing that they want to do something completely different for a change. Codex would have blown up if Brennecke and Null had left the company. Hell, Avellone already hinted that Brennecke was looking to switch studios back in his May of Rage times.

    The interview with Brennecke Usgamer is quite good and informative. It would seem like there is a backstory and the characters are fleshed out etc. even though the rpg mechanics will be on the lighter side. But then again, was South Park deep into the rpg mechanics either?

    If "passion" projects like this keep the people who have been at company for a decade or longer, then let them do them. I think that is better option than losing those core people from the company because they were forced to work on a yet another Pillars of Eternity game.

    Other game announced at the same event, probably have believed this is the same game but in a different map:

    Grounded's Pitch meeting:

    Obsidian: "We want to make a super generic survival game with a cartoony artstyle that looks just like all of the other 200 generic online survival asset flips out there."
    Microsoft: "An online survival game! Thats a sequence of buzzwords that I've heard of before!"
    Obsidian: "Yes, it will probably make very little money because its competing with hundreds of other identical games and it will piss of our entire fanbase in the process."
    Microsoft: "Oh... very little money... I don't like the sound of that. Cancel it."
    Obsidian: "No wait! Uhmm, you know Fortnite right?"
    Microsoft: "Of course, it made 2.4 billion dollars in microtransactions last year."
    Obsidian: "Right, well this is a Fortnite clone."
    Microsoft: "I just had an erection. Uncancel it. So it has a battle royale mode?"
    Obsidian: "No. Its not like Fortnite Battle Royale, which was a huge commercial success. Its more like Fortnite: Save the World, which was a failure.
    Microsoft: "Oh, so you took something that people liked and removed the thing that people liked about it!? Just llike BattleCry Studios did with Team Foretress 2 and Fallout!? Genius! Those games worked out so wel!"
    Obsidian: "Ikr"
    Microsoft: "But, uhmmm, what makes this game unique? What makes it stand out in the marketplace?"
    Obsidian: "Absolutely nothing"
    Microsoft: "I love it. Soulles generic garbage, just like Halo, Gears, Forza, State of Decay and all of our other games. Thats precisely what the market wants!"

    We're going to see people pretending they like it, obsidian-dedicated 100% shitposters who aren't banned for mysterious reasons spamming threads with inane crap and infinitron bumping them with "sawyer said" screenshots anyway.

    I'm way past caring for obsidian and their games, but the fact that they manage to bring tangible decline directly to the codex itself still pisses me off.

    The premise could have worked as anything other than the genre it was put in.

    Bizarre pulp inspired RPG where the types of small animals are different factions?
    Point and click adventure?
    Survival horror where you have to evade predators and those who want to dissect you?
    ect.

    Also the kid's faces look utterly soulless.

    this isn't for anyone, who the fuck is going to play this? if it's not F2P it's a complete waste - why would fortnite kiddies drop their free game for this?

    The game in the interview sounds kinda cool. It actually has story and characters. Maybe it's worth a shot via Game Pass.

    Wonder if he was the fan of the Minefortdayz genre or if that was Microsoft.
