Precursor Games discusses Shadow of the Eternals

The crowdfunding campaign for Shadow of Eternals, the long-awaited spiritual sequel to Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, has begun. The title is being developed by Precursor Games, a new studio formed last year from the ashes of Silicon Knights, which hopes to raise $1,500,000 to fund this follow-up to their 2002 GameCube cult classic. 

Like its predecessor, Shadow of the Eternals follows multiple characters across various time periods and settings as a central protagonist attempts to piece together a mystery that is at the crux of these intertwining stories. 

Shadow of the Eternals will be released as a series of twelve episodic releases for Wii U and PC. Head over to the title's crowdfunding page if you'd like to contribute to the project. Additionally, you can check out a nine-minute gameplay demo and chat with Denis Dyack over at IGN. A word of warning, Precursor Games isn't using Kickstarter or Indiegogo for the campaign. If for whatever reason things don't go according to plan backers and their investments will be at the mercy of Dyack and company.

Anybody like Rhythm games? I found a really cool one on, I likes it, I likes it a lot! Although you gotta use Firefox due to lag caused by chrome unfortunately.

Finding name brand candy in Chibi-Robo Zip Lash brings an unexpected joy that reminds me of finding Duracell batteries and other real products in the first Pikmin.

Super Meat Boy must be one of the most difficult platinum trophies to exist for Playstation. Beat every dark world section without dying? Ha, okay.

Attention Craigslist users: No one wants your ps2 sports games no matter how much you repost them/drop the price, unless it's NBA Street, Def Jam Vendetta or SSX3. The rest are better used as drink coasters.

If you imagine this song as Kojima speaking these as parting words to his creation of Metal Gear, it's actually pretty heat breaking...

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.
