"Shadows of the Eternals has been plagued with controversy since its announcement. Precursor started accepting donations for its game outside of Kickstarter, money that wouldn't be returned if the project didn't reach fruition. A few months later, one of Precursor's founding members, Ken McCulloch, was arrested for the possession of child pornography."

Jesus, that's some effed up ish.


Indeed and as hard as it is to believe? That's only some of the controversy.

They should do everyone a favor and sell the rights. They'd get money, and we would (hopefully) get another awesome game.

A good game is a good game, regardless of system, res, framerate, and sales. Same goes for systems.

I think the game has aged poorly, and I don't think a remake would be a good idea. I think they'd need to truly rebuild the game from scratch--redesigned areas, complete overhaul of the gameplay, and revamp the sanity system--in order for it to be any good. Basically I think they'd need to do a new game, and I don't think the original devs could possibly do it justice.

I also have to wonder how the sanity effects would stay fresh and interesting. I feel like with the way gaming is these days, all the effects would be spoiled well before the game was released.

Yes for Wii U. The GamePad would be great for menu/spell management and insanity effects.

I disagree. The Gamepad would be a great way to disrupt the player's focus and break immersion. That's a huge no-no in any type of horror/atmospheric game, and it's one of the reasons I couldn't get absorbed in Zombi U. Also, any half decent developer can do inventory management without the need for a second screen.

IIRC, Nintendo holds the patent for the main mechanic of the game, the sanity bar or whatever it was. So unless it was made for a Nintendo platform, a spiritual successor or remake, sequel, or reboot, they would be losing out on what made the game what it was.

Nintendo doesn't own the rights to sanity in video games.

I think the game would actually benefit by getting rid of the heavy-handed "sanity bar" anyways. It would be more immersive and surprising if you didn't have such a clear indication of your sanity level. In Eternal Darkness it was too easy to get through the game with your sanity almost always intact. You kind of had to go out of your way to lower your insanity and see the crazier effects. Making it more subtle would be a good thing.
