In a post thanking backers, Shadow of the Eternals
developer Precursor Games says it has not given up on the project after failing to meet its Kickstarter campaign goal.
"It is unfortunate that we were unable to crowd-fund this project at this time, but we have not given up. We intend to pursue other avenues with the ultimate goal of having our games come to fruition," reads the latest update
on the Kickstarter page.
After closing its original crowdfunding
effort to better describe its vision and restructure its funding goals, Precursor relaunched the campaign for Shadow of the Eternals on July 25
. The developer's second attempt at funding ultimately fell well short of its $750,000 goal, inching just above the $320K mark before ending on August 23.
Billed as a spiritual successor to the GameCube-exclusive Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
, Shadow of the Eternals
will continue its online presence with what the latest campaign update describes as upgraded forum software. The game's forums
will remain open, the developer promises.
Meanwhile, Shadow of the Eternals
is still up for votes on Steam Greenlight
. Joystiq has contacted Precursor to find out whether it will be removed from Valve's platform for the time being.
