New Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter Launched
Indie developer Precursor Games has recently released some news about their upcoming survival horror game Shadow of the Eternals after their newest Kickstarter campaign was launched.
Shadow of the Eternals is a spiritual successor to the survival horror game Eternal Darkness: Sanityâ€™s Requiem for the Nintendo Gamecube. It is the tale of Paul Becker, a detective whose investigation of a massacre in Louisiana takes a turn for the bizarre when it is discovered that the two instigators of the massacre have lost all memory of who they are, leaving only an obsessive need to kill each other. His story, however, is not the only one told; there are many tales centered around the mysterious Eternals, all of which have been steeped in horror. The only other known tale at this time is that of Klara, a handmaiden to the infamous Countess Bathory who has been blackmailed into investigating the Countess for information on a noblemanâ€™s missing daughter.
One of the major announcements made by Precursor Games is the casting of David Hayter as Detective Paul Becker. Hayter has done voice work in the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid series as Solid Snake himself; he has also done some voice work in Eternal Darkness: Sanityâ€™s Requiem. Precursor Games has listed their Kickstarter goal at $750,000; Kickstarter backers will be invited to join the â€œOrder of the Unseen,â€ a group dedicated to helping design the game through a community-driven model and working directly with the creators.
