Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter now live

Rely On Horror: Precursor Games' second (third if you count their website's own proprietary crowdfunding) attempt at Kickstarting their sequel to the cult classic Eternal Darkness is now live. The updated KickStarter is asking for $750,000 and funding ends on August 23rd. The new asking price for this Kickstarter is significantly less than the 1.5 million (1.35 million on their first Kickstarter) that Precursor originally hoped to reach. With this new Kickstarter comes new information regarding which platforms the game will release on. It is revealedthat it will release on PC and the Wii U if funding is met, with a PlayStation 4 port as a new stretch goal. (Dev, PC, PS4, Shadow of the Eternals, Wii U)

Dafaq?never knew Hayter was in this game aswell as franchise,will definately pledge even though i don't have a Wii U
There trying to put it on PS4 too. Its already coming to pc though.

Well regardless if Hayter is part of the project, as long as some people know that Dyack is part of the project they won't donate. Sucks that some people are that way but it's their money at the end of the day.

I think that Dyack did a lot of damage control and the guy has apologized for being over zealous. I think most people will get that he is a decent guy who just wants to get on with his life. More importantly, I think the gaming press will be behind him this time around.

The game looks great so far, I hope they make the Kickstarter goal and then some.

Still not going to give money to a company founded by a Pedophile and Dennis Dyack

While it's your money at the end of the day and you're free to do with it what you please, your reasoning for having resentment against this studio is nothing short of asinine and hateful.

Newsflash: Closet soon-to-be criminals work in public workplaces everywhere and all the time, whether you know it or not. The company is not responsible if they commit a crime while employed by them.

Furthermore, what is with this incessant hatred towards Dyack?

If you don't get the hatred for Dyack I suggest you(and anyone thinking of giving money to this kickstarter) look at his track record
cleft5  +   709d ago
How dare Dyack be passionate about a game that he was releasing. The reality is that Dyack over promised with Two Human but he didn't lie or deceive anyone. He just couldn't deliver at the end of the day. If no one ever tried than they wouldn't fail, but we also wouldn't have all the advances in technology that we have right now. As for the alleged pedophile, they fire that guy and no company is responsible for the actions of their employees.

The Too Human thing is just one blot on his record there are a lot more issues with Dyack than just that.

I'd really love to see this come to life. Eternal Darkness was amazing and unique.
BlackWolf  +   709d ago
Good to see them back. Hope this time it works out for them this time. The simply looks stunning, and I would be happy to play it once it's completed.

Eternal Darkness is one of my favorite games ever. If this succeeds and they make it for PS4 I will buy it. Doing it for WiiU seems dumb. It's going to be the least successful of the new console and is probably one of the main reasons the Kickstarter failed the first time around.

Yeah it seems so dumb to put it on a Nintendo console when the original game was exclusive to a Nintendo console.

Scatpants  +   708d ago
What difference does that make?
BlackWolf  +   708d ago
I disagree. The only thing an additional console can do in a kickstarter game campaign is drive pledges, not scare them away (thinking rationally, it should be obvious). If people don't want it on a console, they could just get it for another console on the list more of their liking, like PC, and possibly PS4, instead of Wii U, in this case. The kickstarter fell because of the (wrong) conception of "Dyack is in this game, it's gonna be a mess/scam" some people have.

What's wrong with making the game for the Wii U? The low install base? That could change (again, could, not sure). You see, the original crowd of Eternal Darkness was on Nintendo, as the game is exclusive to the GameCube, so they're betting for the hardcore Nintendo fanbase to buy the game. It's their call.

I have a feeling that this will fail again, this project has way too much baggage.
