A while back, an indie company made up of several original developers from Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem formed together and announced their plans to develop a follow-up to the GameCube title for Wii U. With a desire to crowd-source the project, many asked why not use Kickstarter. Based in Canada, they originally could not, but eventually they made it happen. However, weeks later, they pulled it with a promise that they would relaunch soon. That day has come. You can now support the project again via Kickstarter. They have also announced the hiring of David Hayter (known for his role as Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid) to play the role of the Paul Becker character.

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, please visit www.ShadowOfTheEternals.com, follow the game on Twitter ShadowEternals or ‘Like’ the game on Facebook.
