Shadow of the Eternals dev vows to continue despite second Kickstarter failure

"We intend to pursue other avenues."

Shadow of the Eternals developer Precursor Games has said it will continue making games despite a second failed crowd-funding campaign.

The studio's first $1.5 million (963k) campaign pitched survival horror Shadow of the Eternals as a sprawling episodic experience. This was then cut down to a cheaper, standalone release for its more modest second attempt.

Shadow of the Eternals' latest funding drive concluded on Sunday with less than half its $750,000 goal.

"It is unfortunate that we were unable to crowd-fund this project at this time, but we have not given up," Precursor wrote in a concluding Kickstarter blog post. "We intend to pursue other avenues with the ultimate goal of having our games come to fruition."

Precursor did not mention Shadow of the Eternals specifically in its plans for the future.

The game was planned as a spiritual successor to GameCube cult classic Eternal Darkness. Its team includes a number of ex-Silicon Knights staff members, including its controversial founder Denis Dyack.

Precursor previously explained that Shadow of the Eternals was "unlikely" to ever see release if the developer's Kickstarter campaign failed.
