The crowdfunding campaign for Eternal Darkness' spiritual successor has gone live, along with nine minutes of footage that feature a lot of talking, slightly less walking, and even a quick encounter with a sort of porcupine monster - albeit cinematically. As they're based in Canada, developers Precursor Games can't go down the Kickstarter route, so they've set up a very Kickstarter-like section on their own site. Be wary, however, as their campaign is of the flexible funding variety, meaning even if they don't reach their $1.5m target, they'll get to keep everything they've raised.

Horror classic Eternal Darkness gets a "spiritual successor" in Shadow of the Eternals

If you had a GameCube back in the day, there's a good chance you had a copy of Eternal Darkness, the time-jumping survival horror that wasn't afraid to mess with your mind. Until the Age of Kickstarter began, hopes for a sequel were slim, but they just got a lot fatter with the reveal of Shadow of the Eternals, a spiritual successor hitting a crowdfunding platform near you this coming Monday. The best part, however, is that it's coming to PC - you know, if the game hits its $1.5m funding target. Check out the mildly terrifying teaser trailer after the break.
