Pillars of Eternity is a role-playing game crowd funded as a spiritual successor to the Infinity Engine RPGs like Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale. It uses an isometric viewpoint with 2D, hand-drawn backgrounds. The gameplay is party-based with a real-time-with-pause combat system.

The game is set in a new fantasy world called Eora where you are a newcomer in the Eastern Reach area. After surviving to a mystical Storm, it appears you are a 'Watcher', with the ability to read/hear the memories of the souls. Your main quest is to learn why your powers have been awaken. During the journey players are able to recruit up to five companions, each with their own motivations. The eleven classes (fighter, paladin, ranger, wizard, druid, monk, priest, rogue, chanter and cipher) and mechanics are reminiscent of Dungeons & Dragons, but are entirely new.


Pillars of Eternity Windows The character sheet also provides access to information about your reputation based on your decisions in quests and interactions. Maybe I should avoid visiting 'House Doemenel' in the next time...
Pillars of Eternity Windows It is a Blood Pool! I better ask it what it is all about. In the interaction I cannot chose two of the options as neither the racial or skill level is sufficient
Pillars of Eternity Windows Every RPG must have dungeons with rivers of blood on the floor. From where do they always get this blood from?
Pillars of Eternity Windows If you add NPCs found in the game (and not created by yourself), those have own quests and occasionally intercept interactions with own opinions
