    Obsidian released a small Pillars of Eternity Kickstarter update today to announce that the full "Road to Eternity" Making Of documentary has been released to backers and buyers. Actually, it's been available on the backer portal since almost two weeks ago, but now you can get it on Steam and GOG too. I quote:

    The long wait is over! We have officially released our documentary, The Road to Eternity. The documentary covers everything - from before the Kickstarter to after the game's release. It was an incredible journey, so take a look if you have the time.

    Our next update will come when we release our next patch in a couple of weeks.

    Addresses

    We are shipping out game DVDs to tiers that get physical disc rewards very shorty. To ensure that your DVD will go to the correct location, please make sure your address is updated on our site. Next Tuesday, May 26th is the final cutoff to make sure that you have your address entered correctly.

    Documentary

    To access your documentary reward head over to your Products page on the Backer Portal. From the "Making Of Documentary" entry you can click the "Watch Video" button. If you prefer to download the documentary directly you can do so on Steam, GOG or Origin. In the future we will allow direct downloads from the Backer Portal. Steam and Origin currently have the documentary live and GOG should have the documentary live in the next day or so.

    If you would like more information about redeeming rewards on the Backer Portal please check out our previous updates.
    The update also contains a shameless plug for some books written by two Obsidian employees...but no Bard's Tale IV shoutout? Tsk, they'd better make up for that when the Kickstarter launches.

    I trust the documentary to be balanced, even though meant for single viewers, and to maintain each viewer's interest awake right until its end.

    Restart Steam. It'll come as a patch for the game and end up in its directory.

    It doesn't make sense to plug a Kickstarter that doesn't exist yet. Most people wouldn't remember.

    Not on Steam, I guess.

    That's probably true, but it's not like they had anything better to do with this update. :P

    I was really impressed with the parts about how they made the music. Good watch overall.

    I found the documentary pretty underwhelming. DoubleFine's was a lot better.

    There is a lot of statements that could be interpreted as whining about not having a publisher.

    The most interesting information is that Fenstermaker was splitting time between South Park and PoE for a while, and well, it shows.

    Well damn me if I'd not want these guys keep making games. Tim Cain stands while he works, a gentleman and scholar of monocles and high taste like Ben Franklin and Hemingway.
    Aside from that it is good to see who were behind the game, although it was more a series of talking heads than actual fly on the wall type unscripted or unchecked moments.

    yeah it felt more like propaganda/very controlled what was talked about, whereas the DF one the doco was more 'indepedent' I guess.

    I saw the documentary, it felt well made but it was a bit disappointing not hearing from some of the superstars like MCA and Tim Cain only had a small bit in it.

    Well they did butcher Chris' good content, so I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't return to the project.

    That would be very odd considering his colleagues have undoubtedly 'butchered' his content before. It's just one of the perils of game development.

    As a co-owner of Obsidian I imagine he has quite a bit of freedom about what to work on and he doesn't seem to be all that interested in PoE though.
