Eternal Darkness

Shadow of the Eternals' retooled crowdfunding campaign didn't make its goal

It's been a rocky road for Shadow of the Eternals, the Eternal Darkness spiritual successor that so desperately wants to grow out of the awkward conceptualization stage and become a real game. First there was the weird, Kickstarter-like thing on their own website; then came an actual Kickstarter campaign, which was quickly pulled for "retooling." Now, their final crowdfunding campaign has concluded without making its $750,000 goal, though the developer is not giving up hope.

Shadow of the Eternals developer Precursor Games has "temporarily" withdrawn its Kickstarter campaign, with 15 days left in its funding period and with less than 10% of its goal met.

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.
