Before Silicon Knights became the butt end of a very sad joke, the developer made one of the most critically acclaimed games on the Gamecube. Enteral Darkness: Sanity's Requiem is still remembered to this day as one of the best games for the console, and one of the best horror games ever made. Talk of a sequel has been floating around for years, but now it seems like it may actually happen.
IGN posted a teaser trailer today for a game called Shadow of the Eternals. If the title wasn't enough of a hint, the teaser outright says that the game is being made by the team behind Eternal Darkness. The studio attached to the project is called Precursor Games though, perhaps as way to distance itself from the bad reputation Silicon Knights has built up for itself over the past few years.
According to Kotaku, Silicon Knights president Denis Dyack is on board with the spiritual sequel. There's some cause for alarm as Dyack does not have the best reputation in the industry anymore either, but it might be worth it to give this new game the benefit of the doubt.
Besides, the folks at
Silicon Knights Precursor Games know that this is likely their last shot at actually being relevant in the industry again. Now it has to convince everybody to support the game when it launches a crowdfunding campaign, presumably via Kickstarter, on Monday.
