With less than 24 hours left in its Kickstarter campaign, Shadow of the Eternals is finding itself well short of its $750,000 target, nabbing only $312,000 in pledges so far.
Shadow of the Eternals--which had been billed as the spiritual successor to the critically revered Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem--has until midnight on Friday August 23 to make its target.
The game's Kickstarter campaign was relaunched on July 25 and featured a commitment from Metal Gear Solid voice actor David Hayter to play the lead role of detective Paul Becker. The game's initial Kickstarter campaign was suspended in June over "new and exciting opportunities," according to developer Precursor Games.
Shadow of the Eternals is a single-player, third-person action adventure game with horror elements that is said to span 8 to 10 hours. It is in development using Crytek's CryEngine 3 for the PC and Wii U, and the PC version will be DRM-free.
Shadow of the Eternals is scheduled to launch by October 2014. For more, check out GameSpot's interview with Precursor Games founder Denis Dyack.
