Hamilton, Ontario (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
Due to overwhelming popular demand, Precursor Games is happy to announce that an official Kickstarter campaign has launched for Shadow of the Eternals.
“We have heard the community’s desire for another option to crowdfund Shadow of the Eternals, and we are very excited about working with Kickstarter,” said Paul Caporicci, CEO of Precursor Games. “We are delighted with the support that we have received for our own campaign so far, and we think that Kickstarter is the quintessential crowdfunding vehicle to bring our game to the widest audience possible.”
“Our community’s involvement has gone well beyond our expectations, with over one thousand pledgers joining our Community Forums to discuss the game and its development,” stated Shawn Jackson, COO of Precursor Games. “We are seeking to raise $1.35 million dollars on Kickstarter. By combining this goal with the tremendous contributions already on our own website, Precursor Games will be able to provide an opportunity for gamers to create games that they want to play.”
“Some people may ask what happens to the pledges on our site if the Kickstarter does not move forward, and the answer is simple: We will issue refunds on our site if the project does not reach its goal on Kickstarter,” said Paul Caporicci. He also emphasized that both campaigns will run in parallel with the same reward tiers.
Those who have already supported on the Shadow of the Eternals website will be rewarded with an exclusive “Whateley Expose”; a digital collection of materials containing lore, manuscripts and clues that the Order of the Unseen has collected over the years. They will also be given an extra forum badge called “Resolute” in acknowledgement of their fearless contributions.
“We are introducing several new ideas with this crowdfunding campaign: episodic content, core community development and a new company called Precursor Games,” said Caporicci. “We understand that there may be some concerns with so many new things. However, what concerns me more is not moving forward from old ideas. We are asking gamers to support us and this forward thinking initiative. Together, let’s look to the future and the opportunity that is Shadow of the Eternals. We are confident that you will not be disappointed.”
