On July 25, Precursor Games will re-launch its Kickstarter campaign for Shadow of the Eternals, which it considers a spiritual successor to Silicon Knights' cult classic, Eternal Darkness.

Last month, Precursor Games sought $1.5 million through the crowd-funding service for Shadow of the Eternals, but pulled the plug before the drive could be concluded. Former Silicon Knights head Denis Dyack told Joystiq that drama surrounding his involvement had affected perceptions of the game negatively.

At the end of June, Precursor Games' writer, game designer and artist Ken McCulloch was arrested on charges of distribution and possession of child pornography. Precursor Games was quick to distance itself from McCulloch and assured he is no longer affiliated with Precursor Games in any way following the allegations.
