Despite all of their YouTube videos, despite all of their blog posts and communication with fans, Kickstarter funded Shadow of the Eternals for the Wii U is falling short of its expected success. And the campaign is starting to show its first cracks, as Precursor Games’ COO Shawn Jackson has spoken to fans over Reddit claiming the title may disappear into the shadows if it falls short of the target.
Shadow of the Eternals’ Kickstarter funding looks bleak; the page has raised just short of $115,000, and with only 18 days to go the future sure doesn’t look too bright for the episodic horror game. When asked by a fan over Reddit if the title will still be created if funding isn’t met, or if Precursor Games has any back-up plans, Jackson could only be truthful. Let us know what you think of Jackson’s statement in the comments below.
“Since we do not have any other source of funding, it is unlikely. We will entertain all options to make this game a reality because we believe in this project. However, we can’t be sure a publisher will share our vision for interacting with the community during development or this would work in the traditional model.” – Shawn Jackson, COO at Precursor Games
