Nice. I'm totally behind the decision to go 2D since that means the in-game graphics will look just like the TV show. I'm getting pretty excited for this, I love the idea of a quality RPG that's all about crude and offensive humor.
I am so on board for this game. The art direction/gfx are perfect as in it looks like South Park. If they nail the classic JRPG blend of simple but deep combat system and add a hilarious story, I don't see how they can miss.
Also, didn't know Obsidian was an Amish developer.
