News: Can An "Eternal Darkness" Sequel Be Kickstarted?

IGN has posted the first teaser trailer for what appears to be a "spiritual sequel" to the 2002 GameCube horror title Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem.  The new title, called Shadow Of The Eternals, seems to hearken back to the ealier game from now-defunct developer Silicon Knights.  Purportedly, Denis Dyack and his team were working on a pitch for a proper sequel to Eternal Darkness before the company shut down following their legal troubles with Epic Games over Too Human.

There's no explicit reference to Kickstarter or any other crowdfunding site, though given the difficulties Lab Zero Games have experienced with IndieGoGo and PayPal, Kickstarter might be the safer and more obvious choice.  More details are promised on the game's website (currently showing a countdown timer) as coming out on Monday.
