Indie developer Precursor Games
has announced the launch of a new Kickstarter campaign
for Shadow of the Eternals
, the spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
. 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.
Shadow of the Eternals eaves 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. The game is expected to launch in fall 2014 on PC and Wii U. Ten screenshots
and a gameplay movie are now available.
