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.

Philosophical question: if the only way to get Batman: Arkham Knight to run decently on my laptop is to lower all the settings and have it run windowed, am I really playing it?

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

It is the middle of the night and Yu-Gi-OH is on TV. Are children with insomnia so common these days?

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Today at work, I made a reference to the DK Rap in one of my news pieces. Any day that I get to do that is a good day.

Everyone's playing MGSV...and I've just arrived in Skellige in The Witcher 3. At this rate, I'll get 'round to MGSV when the PS7 arrives.
