* 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.
* TheWikiRule: There is an [[http://eternity.gamepedia.com/Main_Page Eternity Wiki]] available.
