    According to this website, Obsidian is planning to "release one game every year, for the next 7 years".

    They misspelled Avowed and Outer Worlds 2 in that headline for some reason lol.

    ^ It's okay, Sawyer is now at that stage of his career where he cares about nothing except his paycheck.

    This sort of highlights how silly acquiring a service-based company with no valuable IPs is.
    What are you really paying for? The workers can quit at any moment. It's not as if you're acquiring their factories or manufacturing process.

    Presumably MS sees value in The Outer Worlds and Pillars franchises, even if we (me) don't.

    I wonder which publisher it was who wanted to buy Obsidian but wasn't interested in any of the games Obsidian was currently making. What a strange offer to make.

    Koch Media / Embracer Group? They seem to buy everything they can get their hands on.

    Cross-posting for posterity, but back in July, JES gave a one-hour talk to The Chinese Room. The video is unlisted, I had to dig around in their newsletter archives to find it. :M

    Now that he's solved RTWP CRPGs, he's been solving TTRPGs. Expect the first rulebook to be published in traditional paper formats as well as on punch cards to better reach its intended audience.
