Snake? Snaaaaaaaaaake?! What are you doing in a spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness?
Precursor Games have relaunched their Kickstarter campaign for Shadow Of The Eternals following a muted (if not downright hostile) response to their original crowd funding campaign. The premise of a psychological horror adventure from the Eternal Darkness team is still the same, but Precursor have upped their game with a more realistic funding target, David Hayter, traditional non-episodic format and a PS4 version in hopes that the third time will be the charm.

"Playing the role of Paul Becker will be a blast as he is both complex and conflicted,” said David Hayter via Codec. “I intend to provide gamers with a provocative and memorable experience on the roller coaster ride that is Shadow of the Eternals."
The new Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter campaign boasts a refined set of financial tiers and concrete goals that are easy and accessible. Precursor Games’ financial goal of $750,000 provides a fully complete, 8-10 hour action-adventure game steeped in psychological horror for PC and Wii U. And now, as Precursor Games is an officially licensed PlayStation 4 developer, the team has added the next-gen console as a stretch goal.
Kickstarter backers are all invited into the “Order of the Unseen,” an elite group of fans whose goal is to participate in designing the game through a unique community-driven model, by working directly with the developers.
Shadow of the Eternals is a single-player, story-driven action-adventure steeped in psychological horror that is the spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (GameCube, 2002). The game weaves historical fact with disturbing fiction, centered around a Louisiana detective whose fate is somehow linked to the true story of the infamous Blood Countess Erzsébet Báthory in 17th century Hungary.
