Shadow of the Eternals Fails Again

Well, once again it looks as though we won’t get the spiritual successor to the Nintendo GameCube’s Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. For the second time, the campaign to fund Shadow of the Eternals on Kickstarter has failed. Precursor Games, the company wanting to bring us this follow-up to Eternal Darkness, had a goal of $750,000 in funds needed to create this game and get it going, but sadly, they ran out of time before they could even reach $400,000 in donations.

The first time the game failed was due to Denis Dyack’s involvement in the Shadow of the Eternals project. Dyack also admitted that what Precursor promised in the original campaign had been misunderstood because of unclear messaging during it’s pledge drive. They decided to try for a second campaign, which only launched just last month.

If the game had gotten the funds acquired to back the project, the game would have come out for the Nintendo Wii U, Sony PlayStation 4 and also for the PC via Steam. It’s such a shame that this game didn’t get the funding needed to get it up and running. For those of you out there who actually played Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, which was only out for the GameCube, know what an incredible gem of a game it was. It didn’t get near enough exposure for how good it was. It was more of one of those ‘underground’ type games that only a select few knew of, and played. It’s a game of wit, puzzles, and mental exhaustion. Literally, mental exhaustion. The game actually plays mind games with the player, causing them to rethink so many things it isn’t even funny.

Will this be their last attempt at creating the spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness? Or perhaps they will try again in the future? We’ll just have to wait until we hear more from Precursor themselves, and see if this failed second attempt really was the last straw.
