Precursor Games has a
new Kickstarter campaign
underway for Shadow of the Eternals
renewed effort at crowdsourcing the funding of their spiritual successor to
Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem
(Precursor includes many former employees
of defunct Eternal Darkness developer Silicon Knights). Here's word on the new
campaign, and how it differs from the fundraising effort they
The new Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter campaign boasts a
refined set of financial tiers and concrete goals that are easy and accessible.
Precursor Games’ financial goal of $750,000 provides a fully complete, 8-10 hour
action-adventure game steeped in psychological horror for PC and Wii U. And now,
as Precursor Games is an officially licensed PlayStation®4 developer, the team
has added the next-gen console as a stretch goal.
Kickstarter backers are all invited into the “Order of the Unseen,” an elite
group of fans whose goal is to participate in designing the game through a
unique community-driven model, by working directly with the developers.
Shadow of the Eternals is a single-player, story-driven action-adventure steeped
in psychological horror that is the spiritual successor to the critically
acclaimed Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (GameCube, 2002). The game weaves
historical fact with disturbing fiction, centered around a Louisiana detective
whose fate is somehow linked to the true story of the infamous Blood Countess
Erzsébet Báthory in 17th century Hungary.
Developed by Precursor Games, Shadow of the Eternals is expected to launch in
fall 2014 on PC and Wii U. For more information about Shadow of the Eternals,
