We all remember Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, the beloved survival horror that came out for the Nintendo GameCube in 2002. Now, more than a decade later, it seems like there’s going to be a sequel of sorts. A teaser trailer on IGN suggests that a spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness is in the works.
The successor, called Shadow of Eternals, is a crowdfunded title developed by Precursor Games. The campaign will launch on May 6th, but as of this writing, no one confirmed if this initiative will appear on Kickstarter, Indiegogo or similar services. What we know so far is that the team behind Shadow of Eternals is looking to raise $1.5 million and that the title will be released as 12 episodes on the Wii U and PC.
Developed by Silicon Knights and published by Nintendo, Eternal Darkness quickly became a cult classic among fans of the survival horror genre. In that game, you assume the role of Alexandra Roivas who needs to investigate a mansion in Rhode Island. One of the game’s most unique aspects is the inclusion of the “sanity effect” as part of the main gameplay.
