Shadow of the Eternals Launches Ambitious (and Confusing) Kickstarter

Shadow of the Eternals developer launches $1.35 million Kickstarter, confusing fans since it runs concurrently with their $1.5 million Paypal crowdfunding campaign. (PC, Precursor Games, Wii U)

Dyack does sketchy things again? What a surprise
mirroredsakura  +   436d ago
Right? I don't see why his presence on this project inspires so much confidence in people. I haven't liked what I've heard so far about him.

Why doesn't Nintendo just fund the game and make it an exclusive?

The whole thing stinks to high hell if you ask me... Just read the T&Cs on their fundraiser, it may as way say "Give us your money then f**k off!"

Good luck to them, but I won't be contributing.

It's sad that something with so much potential (that thing being Kickstarter) has turned into nothing more than cyber-panhandling. Albeit with a rider in their T&C that states "Give us your money then f**k off!".

I wish the best for the game. I just don't have any expectation of it becoming a reality at this point.

@LostDjinn - it gets weirder. Despite their original reasons for using their own fundraising site was that they couldn't use Kickstarter in their country, suddenly it's not an issue.

Maybe the suspicion shown on here, Neogaf and Reddit is finally getting the message across to them... I still don't trust these guys though.

Yeah. Something's off. I really liked the first one (a second would be great) but let's face it, this whole business is giving off some very strange vibes.

the crowd funded campaign will be merged with the kickstarter, but still left open if people wanted to donate that way. they also state on the site if they fail to meet the required amount they will refund peoples pledges (still to be seen but they do have it in writing on their site so..). all this is on thier website and also the people on the forums vote for how they want them to proceed, it's all quite hands on.

as for denis dyack he is only one part of their team he is not the one solely in charge.

So sad, I finally find something I want to support on kickstarter but it seems to have little chance of happening. Wish Nintendo had just made a deal to put this on Wii U and provided some funding instead of this massive kickstarter goal trying to be reached by Precursor.

go for the $5 option what can you lose (except $5)
mydyingparadiselost  +   435d ago
I'm not worried about losing money and I will throw some money into it, my point is that their goal of 1.35 million for JUST the pilot isn't going to happen as there hasn't been enough support for it. I'm trying to keep hope alive but reality points towards an unfortunate conclusion.

I put money towards a Limited Edition pledge before the kickstarter. I then decided I wanted to do another level higher than what I wanted to pledge and they refunded my earlier pledge the same day, so they have done right so far by my opinion.

I find it funny though that people bitched about them not using kickstarter to begin with when that was not even an option they could use. Now they can and it is still a problem. If I end up losing the money that I pledged then that is on me. At least I get a chance to help fund something that I have always said I wanted another game about.

is this what the game industry has become?
devs begging the gaming community to fund the production of games?

then forking out to buy the game?

to line THEIR pockets?

piss off.

since when were game devs a charity

why dont they go and beg a bank for the money? or nintendo? or another major publisher.

if none of those will fund the game, chances are its not worth it
