Precursor wants you to know that they aren't Silicon Knights with a name, talk about Wii U support

Coming from a Gamesindustry interview with CEO Paul Caporicci...

"We realize that those negative impressions exist and we're doing our best to show everyone Precursor is a totally new entity. I understand that skepticism but we just want an opportunity to show people that it's not that. We did work at Silicon Knights but we're trying to do something new and it's different positions and a different structure and it is a wholly different company."

Caporicci also discussed why the team chose Wii U as the only console to get Shadow of the Eternals...

"We felt that one of our core bases was the Nintendo fan so Wii U would be a great platform to support. With crowdfunding the support for Wii U has been great; they're extremely happy about it and have been contributing to our campaign. We've been in constant communication with Nintendo and they've been really supportive of us and bringing the game to their platform."

except they staff a bunch of ex-Silicon Knights people. It's not a new company when the same staff are trying to emulate a game they made at their last company.

People get very hung up on the past. A good company can make a bad game, and a company that's made bad games is very capable of making a good one. I understand skepticism, but judging it before it's out has always seemed a bit too foolish. I don't guarantee it's going to be great, but until I play it for myself, why get worked up in formulating an opinion? I just know I'm excited to see what could become of this.

I too think it's unfair to lampoon them based on past decisions. I can understand the dislike many have for Dyack but they've obviously made a fair bit of progress on it so far, I'd be surprised to see them just take the money and run.

The best thing to do is, if you're interested in a new Eternal Darkness but you're concerned about the management of it and whether it will actually see release even if it does get funded, is to just put in $5. It's not a lot to invest and you shouldn't miss it should the project fall through. Honestly I've never really seen the point in giving much more than to Kickstarter projects and such anyway.

well considering they said if it fails to bring in enough money, they will refund you, makes it a win win for everyone. Anyone who has any interest in this game should try and contribute a little bit. I sort of hope nintendo may consider donating some money themselves to make this work. God knows they could use all the support they can get at this point

It's only a few staff from Silicon Knights. Also, Denis Dyack is not the CEO of Precursor Games, he's the Chief Creative Officer. I pledged $5 so far, but the game isn't getting made based on the current rate of donations anyway so I've resisted pledging an extra $20. I mean, t's been taking them all day to get a couple more grand to reach $130,000. First day donations were at $98, second day donations were at $17k, and now the third day sales have been sluggish. Oh, and now they changed their donation goal to $1.5 million to $1.6 million.

I always says: A rose by any other name is still a rose. I believe it firmly... But they makes it harder and harder to hate them. :(
More and more I want that game... Maybe in a week or two I'll crack. o_o

I also wondered why all the hate for these guys so I looked it up and found an article on kotaku that explained it. It was so terrible I almost felt bad for that dennis guy. It paints him as this insane, greedy, arrogant douchbag with no care for quality or anyone but himself.. Apparently nintendo was HUGE in factoring into the quality control of their games.

I really want to donate to see this game come to life but im very weary. Its not silicon knights, its dyack. if you can find the article, read it. I was literally shocked by how terrible this guy was made out to be.

Well personally I'm just interested in trying it out and taking the game for a spin.

Well, I canhonestly say I've never played ED like the rest of you, but I'd love to try this out if it sees release.

Seconded. The best we can do is to just wait until we finally play the game in full for ourselves to make a final judgement. ^_^

Yeah apparently they forgot the Nintendo fan for all those years they wasted on that colossal flop called Too Human.
