Precursor Games Forums
announce that their Shadow of the Eternals
project is "on hold" (thanks
). Precursor, formed by Denis Dyack and other veterans of
Silicon Knights, twice attempted to Kickstart a spiritual successor to Eternal
, and after failing to secure crowd sourced funding for the episodic
, they vowed to
other funding, but word is this has come to and end, for now at least:
is with a heavy heart that we have decided to put the Shadow of the Eternals
project on hold. We are very happy with what we have accomplished both as a
group and with the community. The community has blown us away and was the one
thing that kept us going through it all - we cannot thank you enough.
Many of us will be taking a break. For those who are not aware, we all worked on
this project as a labor of love and self financed 100% of everything for a over
a year to try to make Shadow of the Eternals a reality. Although we did not
succeed on doing this, we succeeded in making many friends and starting
something that we hope provided value for those involved. We have no regrets.
Denis, Phil and Aaron have decided to continue to run the forums for those who
wish to stay hang out and talk. Denis, Phil and Aaron will also be taking a
break but will be around posting and talking with everyone when they can. Others
from Precursor will also be popping in from time to time.
Is the project dead? No, but we feel it needs a rest too. We have all agreed as
a group that when and if the time is right we will get together and start it up
Keep your head high everyone and remember what we have accomplished together.
