Pillars of Eternity was released in 2015 by Obsidian after being funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign (which I backed). One of the Westgate Campaign NPCs made it in there, although in more of a “parallel universe” fashion that does not accurately reflect his personality in the campaign. That aside, the game is an outstanding RPG with a mix of story, characters and struggle that really does make it a spritual successor to the Baldur’s Gate / Infinity Engine games.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire was released in 2018 by Obsidian after a successful Fig funding campaign (which I also backed). There’s another NPC Easter Egg in there, if you can find him.
