IGN has posted a trailer for Shadow of The Eternals, which is described as a "spiritual successor" to Eternal Darkness.  It's being made by a group called Precursor Games, with Silicon Knight's Dennis Dyack involved in some capacity.  A crowdfunding campaign is set to launch on Monday.

A couple years ago I'd have been reasonably pumped for this announcement. After hearing about the clustercuss that was X-Men Destiny and Silicon Knights' subsequent implosion, anything with Dyack's name gets a wary glance from me.

I'll believe it when I can play it for myself.

I misunderstood this when i first clicked on the link,i thought it was $1.5 million for the 12 episodes,but they say it will be $1.5 million for the first episode...bit of a joke

According to Precursor, "our primary goal for Shadow of the Eternals is to raise 1.5M dollars. Any money raised beyond this will contribute to stretch goals that go beyond the first episode, including future episodes, additional characters, additional platforms and in-game perks. The more money that we raise, the more we can deliver, which is a win for everyone."

hmmm...

Can you explain the stretch goals?
Shadow of the Eternals will be an episodic series, and our initial goal is 1.5 million dollars. This includes production on the Pilot Episode, game engine costs and core system development. Future episodes of Shadow of the Eternals will be significantly less to produce, and we look forward to announcing the possibility of more episodes based on the success of our campaign.

and then the Campaign Progress only shows:



I wonder how much more the stretch goals for each episode is going to be.

Granted, the article is only one-sided, but it is an interesting read on behind the scenes at Silicon Knights

Yep, definitely one to avoid and yeah Dyack is a jerk. Pretty much all of Silicon Knights' success came from good outsource management practices from external publishers like Crystal Dynamics, Nintendo and Konami. Left on their own, Dyack's antics ran them into the ground.

Ha,you could look into this soooo many ways

they have now launched an actual kickstarter(because of demand apparently) and extended the date

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/617502838/shadow-of-the-eternals

Eurogamer
Quote
The ex-Silicon Knights devs at Precursor Games have added an actual Kickstarter to supplement its Shadow of the Eternals crowdfunding campaign.

Previously, the Eternal Darkness spiritual successor only accepted donations through its official site. Those who donate that way will receive an exclusive "Whateley Expose," a digital collection of lore, manuscripts and clues from the clandestine Order of the Unseen.

Precursor also bolstered its event tiers so that the $100 Magikal Supporter reward now contains a digital art book and the Insane Supporter $5000 tier (which one person had claimed) now allows such generous backers the ability to contribute to the game's sanity events, artwork, music and storyline.

So why the Kickstarter? Precursor claimed it's "due to overwhelming popular demand," though one suspects the developer is struggling to meet it's goal with only $170,255 of its $1.5 million goal funded between both crowdfunding sites, and the Kickstarter's 19th June deadline is a couple of weeks later than the 7th June one on the official site, giving the fledgling dev more time to meet its goal.

they may get more people biting on Kickstarter since the company won't see anything unless it hits the goal.

I'm not surprised. Dyack's name is toxic. He's like the Orson Welles of video games, if Orson Welles hadn't made anything good after Citizen Kane.

Yah, that and the fact that (as noted) all you are guaranteed is the "Pilot" episode with "the possibility of more episodes based on the success of our campaign". I've backed many projects on Kickstarter but both of these things are keeping me away from this one. Unfortunately that means that I'm not "contributing to their success" so people in the same boat as I am are helping to doom it to failure. Ah well.

Come back with a full, stand-alone sequel and I'd be all over it.

Conversing with fans on Reddit, Jackson was asked if Shadow of the Eternals will still be developed if the $1.35 million funding target is not met.

"Since we do not have any other source of funding, it is unlikely," he replied.

I suspect that it's more that ED wasn't as popular as people thought, combined with high asking price, was the death of this kickstarter rather than the shady developers.

I think it was all three plus the ambiguous 'promise' of future episodes.

fundraising ending  with a relaunch 'soon':

Quote
Since we announced this Kickstarter campaign we have seen more support from our community than we had ever hoped for. Along with this support has come a host of a new exciting opportunities that will make the game better than we envisioned.  As a result, we have chosen to temporarily take down the Shadow of the Eternals crowdfunding campaigns on both Kickstarter and our own website on Thursday, June 6.

This doesn’t mean we are going away — far from it.  We’ll be re-launching the Kickstarter in just a few short weeks with a reveal of these exciting new developments.

new Kickstarter

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/617502838/shadow-of-the-eternals-0


GameInformer

Quote
The budget for the title, which was originally $1.5 million for the first of twelve episodes, is now $750,000 (plus an undisclosed amount of external funding) for a complete eight to ten hour game

sounds much better,it currently has $23k of the $750k they need with 29 days to go


EDIT:
My internet went down as i was typing this,and the ninja struck

EDIT 2: Having problems with the smiley faces and the quote or url tags as well for some reason
