Shadow Of The Eternals Is Still Alive And The Team Has “Big Plans For The Future”

In an interview with Denis Dyack, creator of Eternal Darkness, they talk about all sorts of things but most interestingly, the Shadow of the Eternals project which has gone relatively quiet. Shadow of the Eternals was a project Denis Dyack and his team tried to achieve funding for on Kickstarter, but failed twice in 2013. Quantum Entanglement Entertainment Inc. are now developing the project, which was founded by Denis Dyack. In the interview, they asked about the funding of the project, Denis said:

Well, we can’t talk about that right now. But there will be announcements in the future. The bottom line is we’re really excited on where we’re going, things are very quiet, and probably will continue to be quiet but they’re going well. Please stay tuned, and we’ll update everyone as soon as we can. I wish I could say more, but you know the drill with the industry, right?

Niche Gamer also asked about if we might potentially get to see the game soon, to which Denis said:

Well, it all depends on what your definition of soon is. [laughs] Rather than tease, I would just say that we believe in the project and we’re doing everything we can to see this project – and other projects – some of which are really great as well, get out there. We’ve got some big plans for the future, and we’re being very aggressive on some things, and we’re really looking forward to see how things roll out.

It’s all pretty vague, but it does seem to confirm that Shadow of the Eternals is still chugging on and they won’t be letting it go, so hopefully we’ll start to see it shaping up soon!

Thanks, paidenthusiast and Luis

  1. Aaaand not hitting WiiU. Srsly, I was a believer but all the recent cases have me at my skeptical finest.

    1. Peanut Butter Kit Kat On The Go!

      Or even it’s successor, people who think that all Nintendo’s 3rd party problems will be solved with more “powerful system”” are very naive indeed.

      1. Indeed. I personally just want Nintendo to clarify with the NX that it’s a 1st party system with some bonus 3rd parties here and then. Because that’S what we should expect a Nintendo system to be and the WiiU showed up how disappointing it gets, if we don’t.

    1. Hopefully Project Cars can add something to the NX’s version of the game to make it the least bit enticing.

      No one wants to buy a 2 year old game. That’s even crazier than what Ubisoft did to Rayman Legends. In 2 years anyone that wanted to play it DEFINITELY played it by then.

      1. Peanut Butter Kit Kat

        I’m not negative, I just don’t think the nx going to be anything like what people are hoping.

      I’m sure “some”will. Not everyone can be pleased.

      That being said. I think (hope) Nintendo has learned a lot these past years with the Wii U and 3DS and whatnot and they can apply this new found knowledge to their next gaming console(s).

      If so, I have a feeling the NX, whatever it is, will be a huge hit.

    2. I kind of feel the same way. Nintendo is on a very thin sheet of ice with a lot of people with the ways they choose to run and go about their business. Now, I hope it does better then any other console, but to be fair I’ve wished that for every console from Nintendo.

      Im one of these people. And I love Nintendo, I don’t want them to go third party only or have to resort to cheap gimmicks. Nintendo needs a hard hitting system. This is just my opinion, Iv been in a relationship with Nintendo for a quarter of my life on earth so far, other than bills, Nintendo has a large chunk of money that iv made. I feel like it (being Ninty) should have evolved enough to keep up with its longer running players : ). We’ll see though, I really want Little Devil Inside, enough to even put in the kickstarter pot.

  2. I still don’t understand why they didn’t just partner up with Nintendo on it. This could have been marketed as the External Darkness successor and probably wouldn’t have had so many set backs

      1. Yeah but if Nintendo is funding the development of the game they can send some members from their development teams to check in to see how the game is turning out and see if the quality meets their standards. Dennis Dyack isn’t to be trusted but if he knows Nintendo is watching him he won’t try to do anything underhanded that will get his project cancelled or further ruined his reputation

    1. For that price it will be as powerful as the Wii with no motion controls. 200$ IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO ENOUGH!!

  3. they don’t want to make project cars for wiiu. who wants a game thats 3 yrs old. u gotta wonder who funding this ms or ninty?

  4. I know that certain someone might enjoy this. You know, the same guy who loves the good Rare and likes to use the term “Nintenyearolds”. I believe his name was icezemania or some shit.

  5. I actually did care about this a little bit back when it was first revealed, but then I found out they wanted to release the game in an episodic format instead of just a full release and I said fuck that. Hopefully whatever their new revision of the game is drops the episode gimmick shit and just makes a full release like Eternal Darkness.

    Also didn’t Nintendo file a copyright for the name Eternal Darkness 2 a couple years back that sparked some rumors?

  6. Pingback: Shadow of the Eternals regresará... ¿como videojuego?

  7. Ridley 4 Smash DLC!

    I don’t care if Denis can’t be trusted. Nintendo, if you haven’t already & no one else has done so, please fund this game. If you have to, keep Denis on a short leash & watch his every move carefully. And make them revise the story slightly so it can be a sequel to Eternal Darkness. Or a prequel if the story can’t be changed to be a sequel. Quit sitting on your asses with the Eternal Darkness trademark & the Sanity Effects trademark! D:<
