Great news for fans of Eternal Darkness; it looks as if the game's spiritual successor 'Shadow of the Eternals' will be a reality -- well, if it can secure a whopping $1.5 million in crowdfunding. As sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter completely revolutionize the way companies receive seed funding, even the arts are turning to that method to fund their dreams.

Developer Precursor is hoping to launch a crowdfunding campaign to kick this week off, looking for enough money to shoot an entire major motion picture. According to the company: "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."


Here's a bit about the plot, for those who don't mind a tease: "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’.

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."

So, you planning on helping the company attempt to reach that goal?
