Shadow of the Eternals release 'unlikely' if Kickstarter slips

Exec claims project must meet $1.35m goal to be developed

Shadow of the Eternals, the unofficial spiritual successor to the GameCube title Eternal Darkness, will likely be cancelled if its crowd-funding target is not met, an executive at the studio has said.


Shawn Jackson, who is effectively second-in-command at the new Ontario outfit Precursor Games, said on Thursday that there is no contingency plan if Shadow of the Eternals does not meet its Kickstarter target.

Conversing with fans on Reddit, Jackson was asked if Shadow of the Eternals will still be developed if the $1.35 million funding target is not met.

"Since we do not have any other source of funding, it is unlikely," he replied.

Shadow of the Eternals has only managed to raise $115,000 at the time of going to press - less than a tenth of its final target. Eighteen days remain before the funding deadline concludes.

The project's Kickstarter page can be found here.

Shadow of the Eternals is an episodic action/adventure game, crafted in the same mould as the acclaimed GameCube title Eternal Darkness. The game is intended to release on Wii U and PC.

Precursor Games, founded in 2012, is "comprised of veteran game developers with over 20 years of experience," including many who were involved with the original Eternal Darkness, according to the original announcement.
