The second Kickstarter campaign for a spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem has failed. Shadow of the Eternals from Precursor Games was seeking $750,000 in funds through Kickstarter, but ran out of time before reaching $400,000.

Precursor Games pulled the plug on its own campaign the first time around, due to what Denis Dyack called "noise" surrounding his involvement in the project. Dyack also admitted there were misconceptions of what Precursor promised, due to unclear messaging in the first pledge drive. Precursor Games relaunched on Kickstarter late last month.

Shadow of the Eternals was planned for Wii U, PS4 and PC on Steam. A Steam Greenlight campaign has been fighting for votes since May, though with a lack of funding for the game we may see it ultimately canceled as well.

Shame, the game looked pretty good. Oh well, one game less to clock up my backlog.



Kickstarter is such a rip off for backers.

At the same time though, it is pure sex for project starters. Too bad this didn't get funded though.

Not sure how KS works but dont you get charged for what you gave away only if the project gets its funding?

I should certainly hope so.

If not, i've got a few scams to cook up...

Normally when people invest in a product, they expect to make a profit. Donate $500 and you expect $750 back. With KS, the funders only get a fraction back of what they put in. Donate $500 and get your name in the game? lol.

Kickstarter does have project goals to protect funders but that protection only works with certain projects, the ones kickstarter was designed for. Today a guy can set the goal to $100,000 to make a game, spend all the money, realize it takes more money, and say "sorry."

You dont get charged unless the project gets funded.  Kickstarter's Terms of Use require creators to fulfill all rewards of their project or refund any backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill.

I am a nintendo fan, not a nintendo fanboy

Really not a surprise after the first Kickstarter failed. A shame though since it looks like they already wasted quite a bit of money on that project.



This really wasn't the right game for Kickstarter. People invest in Kickstarter projects when they have trust and confidence in the team behind the game. I don't think anyone had any confidence in Dyack and the remnants of Silicon Knights.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

why don't they just go to a publisher
