Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter

Eternal Darkness Fans …. Prepare for the darkness has returned.

I can’t count how many times in the past 12 years my husband (Sil3ntX) has picked up his copy of Eternal Darkness and played through the game. There are some many iconic gems to the game and it is one of those games that has endless replay value.

So I was thrilled to learn that the makers of Eternal Darkess, Precursors were creating another installment.

Here are some details about the game:

When Detective Paul Becker is called to one of the bloodiest gang massacres in Louisiana state history, only two survivors remain from a brutal conflict between two rival cults. As Becker begins his interrogations of the suspects, their combined recollections will uncover the truth about the ‘Eternals’.

Shadow of the Eternals is a psychological horror game made by the creators of Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Reqiuem, a spiritual successor to the cult classic. Featuring an ensemble cast of heroes and villains, Shadow of the Eternals will span over 2500 years of history throughout Egypt, England, Hungary, and the United States. Players will question the perception of reality as they try to balance the mechanics of combat, magick, and sanity events to progress through the adventure.

Shadow of the Eternals will take players on a memorable journey throughout time; weaving historical fact with disturbing fiction to create an experience unlike any other.

The story is based around events taking place in four parts of the world. Each location has its own story theme, explaining one aspect of Becker’s “hub” story. This story is further broken down into three acts – introduction, development and resolution, which are themselves complete stories – and playable levels, with the action in each setting the stage for a later story.

Precursor Games will be focusing on Windows PC and Wii U platforms. Other platforms may be added in the future if desired by the community and the right funding goals are met. To see more details and contribute check out their fundraising efforts on Kickstarter.
