    Most horror game fans are familiar with "Eternal Darkness" for the Gamecube, made by Silicon Knights. The title received much praise in its days and its fans demanded a sequel for years now. While we may never see that happening since the sequel was canned due to financial issues alongside many other Silicone Knights titles, there is a successor in the works, developed by Precursor Games. Dennis Dyack, the director of "Eternal Darkness" and president of Silicone Knights is involved in the project. The game's title is "Shadow of the Eternals" and it's going to be funded via crowdfunding. If you're in any way interested in playing the game, you may chip in starting May 6th - in the meantime, enjoy the teaser trailer.​

    Dennis Dyack being involved is one major reason not to invest in this Kickstarter.

    Well, see what they've produced recently. Oh. Oh.

    Yeah, that'll be a "Hell no!" from me.

    What's the platform (please don't be WiiU!) I thought Ninty owned the IP?
    I would check myself but am on Vita and link won't work for some reason.

    Well, I think this could be awesome. I don't give a fuck about those other horrible games they've produced (IIRC they weren't interested in those games, or lacked funding, or something. Not sure though.).

    I remember eternal darkness, I loved that game, I'm hoping this successor actually delivers like the first one did

    If you give Denis Dyack money, you need your head examined.

    I don't get it, doesn't the Eternal Darkness franchise belong to Nintendo?

    Everything depends on Dennis's role in the project - if he's an art direction advisor, I don't see how things could go wrong - his hands would not be directly on the money. All that was said was that he's involved in the project, not that he's the head of it.

    As like everyone says, Dennis being involved is an instant NO.

    I freaking loved Eternal Darkness, so I will be optimistic about this game!

    BTW, it's Silicon Knights. Silicone Knights would be the porn parody version.
