Precursor Games has launched the official crowd-funding campaign for the Friday-teased Eternal Darkness successor Shadow of the Eternals.

The campaign confirms earlier leaks that it is an episodic action-adventure game, with the first episode slated for a Q3 2014 release across Wii U and PC.

The CryEngine 3-powered game is set to feature an “ensemble cast” and span over 2,500 years of human history. Precursor promises “players will question their own perception of reality as they progress through this mind-altering psychological horror.”

To complete the project, the studio needs $1.5 million. As of press time, the campaign has crowd-sourced just over $16,000. Those that chose to fund the project, however, should note that, as per its Terms of Use, “a donation cannot be cancelled or returned once it has been completed, whether or not Precursor Games completes the Game or fulfils the specified reward.” Also, “Precursor Games is under no obligation to complete the Game, or in the event completion is impossible, return any of the donations it has received.”
