Precursor Games has re-launched the Kickstarter campaign for Shadow of the Eternals, notably known as the spiritual successor to Silicon Knights’ horror game, Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem.
“To our KickStarter [sic] community—thanks for your support and encouragement. We’re really happy to let you know that the re-launch of the Shadow of the Eternals campaign is now live,” reads Precursor’s recent update on the project’s Kickstarter.
Denis Dyack and his team at Precursor Games have lowered the funding from $1,350,000 to $750,000. They have also revamped reward tiers, game structure, and announced David Hayter as the voice of main protagonist Detective Paul Becker. Becker is investigating a massacre at Pleasant View Hospital, in which he discovers two individuals—a suave businessman and a hardened biker—that want to kill each other.
The Kickstarter campaign for Shadow of the Eternals ends on Aug. 23. As of this moment, 1,340 backers pledged $56,580.
Precursor Games’ Chief Executive Officer Paul Caporicci revealed in June his team temporarily took down the Shadow of the Eternals crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter and on Precursor’s official website. Precursor is vying to launch Shadow of the Eternals on PC and Wii U in 2014. There is also a campaign for the game on Steam Greenlight.
