* DuelingGames:
** ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'' and ''VideoGame/TormentTidesOfNumenera'' were both {{Kickstarter}} funded {{spiritual successor}}s to old-school [=CRPGs=], specifically ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''. Unsurprisingly, ''Planescape: Torment'' team members like Creator/ChrisAvellone worked on both. {{Downplayed}} in that both teams have wholeheartedly endorsed each other's projects, and Obsidian made a point of directing their backers to donate to ''Torment'' as well.
** Also, with ''VideoGame/DivinityOriginalSin'', as both are tactical, isometric [=RPGs=] with old school sensibilities that feature open-ended tasks and shy away from hand-holding. Both also draw comparisons to ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II''.
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Matthew Mercer, who voiced Aloth and Eder, also voiced Leon S. Kennedy (ResidentEvil6).
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Two of Chris Avellone's companions, Durance and Grieving Mother, were initially much, much darker. Obsidian felt they are too controversial, so they were rewritten by other writers. And given how those two turned out ''as shipped'', the mind ''reels'' at what the first draft must have looked like.

* WorkingTitle: "Project Eternity".
