failing to land the funding Precursor Games seeks to create a third-person
action/adventure they plan as a spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness
The campaign by this developer which includes David Dyack and other Silicon
Knights veterans made it up to $323K, less than half their $750K goal.
This is an improvement over their first Kickstarter, which
their initial push failed to land 10% of the commitment they sought, but not

there's no word at this point whether they intend on giving this another try.
has word that Grand Theft Auto V
preloads on PlayStation 3 may
have given enterprising hackers the chance to dope out some of the game's
