Needs a lot of work but I've pledged more than on any other Kickstarter because if its half as awesome as the first game it'll be one of my favourites.
@jaydeeself I doubt Nintendo will fund this game considering the string of bad ideas coming from mr Iwata but Im really hoping they do and maybe get back on top where they should be. All they have to do is quit being arrogant, take chances, and take their heads out of their rear ends lol
If anyone is a fan of the Cthulhu mythos, these are the games to play. Eternal Darkness was an amazing game for screwing with you when your sanity starts dropping, producing some absolutely terrifying moments ala MGS style. I'm hoping that this title will be a dark horse when it gets released, really need a good horror game.
eternal darkness was shit. I played it way over half it just got boring, several of my characters were stamped on by a giant beast and never seen again, thought it was just shit, badly paced gash, doubt this will be any different, looks like softcore period lesbian video lol
They were talking about 'slapped on textures, odd reflections in his eyeballs'... I noticed his shoes were not properly tied and one of his buttons was loose. What the hell?
The important thing is... does it have any titties? that aside seriously for uch a beautiful game they just need to work on the main character.. he looks a generation behind the scenery
Some people believe that Countess Elizabeth Bathory (a person who lived in real life circa the 16th & 17th century) was the most prolific serial killer in human history. She didn't kill all those women by herself, but she had help from others.
Real life in this case just plan beats out fiction when it comes to morbid murders and equally absurd motives. No wonder the devs chose to put her in "Shadow of the Eternals"- her character will fit right in with the dark themes they are going for here.
Is this really a spiritual successor? That level was straight out of the first game, and the book they were gazing into is almost certainly the Tome of Eternal Darkness.
Regardless of that, it looks great and I'm definitely picking it up. There was a lot of nostalgia in that trailer. From the music, to the quiet, but slightly unnerving atmosphere, to the awesome insanity effect (of which I can't wait to see more), and even the way the characters are modeled.
Man, talk about nit picking gone too far. The game looks GREAT man. Give it a rest. Definitely will be getting this.
Despite what the guys in the video kept saying about the game's graphics not being totally mind-blowing, I find Shadow of the Eternals to look beautiful. Would've liked to see more than the main character just walking around. Still, this looks like something that I'd have an enjoyable experience playing.
Eternal Darkness is one of the best games I ever played! Looking forward to this one! Great news it's coming to the PC.
This game looks fantastic. However, they are going for survival horror? It may be too early to judge but, I don't find anything set in a fantasy type environment to be very scary. It does look fun though. I would call it... survival adventure!
The Countess in the beginning is based off of Countess Elizabeth Bathory de Ecsed, the most prolific female serial killer in history. She was also known as the "Blood Countess" due to later reports claiming she bathed in the blood of the women she slain. She's the inspiration for numerous female vampire stories, much like Vlad the Impaler was the inspiration for Dracula.
I hope they get the character realism element before release. Hey, dev! If you need animation inspiration, just remember Dirk the Daring!
If the wii u is capable of putting out these graphics, why aren't developer's more willing to develop for the system?
Eternal Darkness sucked from a gameplay standpoint. Hopefully they'll do something about that in this game.
wow... looks good. i still will never back a software kickstarter... but i will consider this game when it releases.
@ferretshob or not
@lilmcnessy They still have a lot of polishing to do.
@Gankstar_VX84 Decoded: I couldn't beat it.
@Gankstar_VX84 Loved Eternal Darkness
@UglyNerdMan Give him titties. Problem solved.
@superveka Right at the beginning of this video it says: PC, Wii-U and PS4. :)
I'm sure XB1 will follow. Somebody at Sony or M$ will notice this game and help with development funding (hopefully). That might make it exclusive to one or the other, but I wouldn't care. I want to see this game completed.
@DarthLod Well, Tom did bring the guy on for his expertise on the matter. It would then be unprofessional of him not to mention everything he can point out with the visuals.
@iskandarzul It's actually a sequel to Shadows of The Empire, and the prequel to Shadow of the Colossus.
@iskandarzul It is the spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness.
@smoothyplum26 Dude there has been some reports that this game will come to the Wii U, PC & PS4
@digits52 I doubt thats the wii u version being shown there looks like pc
