KickStarter Campaign Relaunch Announcement: 

We’re very excited to finally be able to announce the re-launch date of our Kickstarter Campaign, going live on July 25th.

We really want to thank our community and followers for the unwavering support and patience over the past few weeks - it’s been a huge inspiration and motivator for us. Your feedback has been instrumental in many ways throughout the process of creating the new campaign and we can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for you all.

In the Community:

Contests:
We have a new contest starting Monday, July 15th, where you’ll get the chance to design the artwork and slogan of our official Shadow of the Eternals T-Shirt that will feature as one of our KickStarter rewards. More details to follow on Monday!

Also recently started is the second MS Paint challenge where we challenge your art skills using only MS Paint or a Mac equivalent to draw something Shadow of the Eternals related. Maybe one of the characters, a scene from the demo or even one of the Elder Gods being designed by the community in The Order. We have ribbons and trophy points up for grabs so check it out here: http://www.precursorgames.com/forums/index.php?threads/ms-paint-contest-number-2-shadow-of-the-eternals.2202/

Podcasts:
We’re very fortunate to have not one, but two great podcasts. One run by us featuring developer interviews and insight into all things Precursor Games, the other run by members of our community focussing on their opinions and the things they’re interested in. You can subscribe to both on iTunes or visit the podcast section of the forum.

Pre-Launch Update #2

Changes are coming, many of them.

We wanted to give everyone another update on the launch of our Kickstarter campaign. Along with the new upcoming announcements, many changes will be made to the structure of our crowdfunding campaign. In short, numerous suggestions about the first campaign were given to us by our community - and we listened. At this point we are not ready to talk about what has changed, but it is safe to say that it is a great deal. We look forward to discussing these changes more in the near future.

Precursor is happy to announce that Phil Haymes has been promoted to Social Media Manager. Phil has been doing a great job, and many people in the community probably noticed that Phil was always more than just a Forum Administrator. Congrats Phil!

The Eternal Elder God creation from the Order has produced amazing results, and we have reached a point where it is now time to choose the Eternal Elder Gods. We have locked the creation of new threads today, only allowing for modification of the current submissions. We wanted to give a special shoutout to Order member DUHH, who has been creating fantastic concepts for the Eternal Elder God submissions. We will roll out the process for selection in the next couple of days with the goal of having the first rank of Eternal Elder Gods selected before the Kickstarter Campaign launch!

Of course, we have our weekly podcast this week not to be missed with Kevin Gordon and community celebrity Onikafei.

The Precursor Games Team.


Kickstarter Pre-Launch Update

Hi Everyone,

We have just gotten back from E3 and are preparing for the launch of our new Kickstarter campaign for Shadow of the Eternals. We have the following goals in mind for our launch:  

Retool our Kickstarter

We learned a great deal from our first campaign and we have made substantial changes to the structure of the campaign from both community feedback and observation.

Community Ramp-up to Kickstarter Launch

  • Now that we have opened up some substantial content to the community like Sanity Events, Story, Eternal God creation and more, we will start to showcase some of this content and prepare this for the launch of the Kickstarter. 
  • Community PR ramp-up - for those who are not aware, several members of the Order have created videos on why they believe that Shadow of the Eternals should be supported. They have been created in a variety of different ways, all of them excellent. We will be using these and others in the Kickstarter launch as well as other community created content in our updates. 

Weekly updates 

We plan on doing at least one weekly update for both the Kickstarter page and our forums to build awareness before our Kickstarter launch. Please continue to help spread the word for us and let people know that the Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter is coming soon! 

Before we post our update on E3 and other plans, please check out the Chronicles of the Order: Issue 2 to find out what has been happening in our community. 

Thanks! 

Precursor Games Team

Message to the Community

To our community,

Since we announced this Kickstarter campaign we have seen more support from our community than we had ever hoped for. Along with this support has come a host of a new exciting opportunities that will make the game better than we envisioned. As a result, we have chosen to temporarily take down the Shadow of the Eternals crowdfunding campaigns on both Kickstarter and our own website on Thursday, June 6.

This doesn’t mean we are going away -- far from it. We’ll be re-launching the Kickstarter in just a few short weeks with a reveal of these exciting new developments.

As we’re closing the current Kickstarter campaign not a single dime from this campaign will be removed from supporters’ accounts and everyone from our website’s crowdfunding campaign will receive full refunds via PayPal. As we re-tool our campaign and continue development, the forums on our site will remain open and active and any interested fans can still join the ‘Order of the Unseen’ to see our progress and join in the fun of creating content for the game themselves.

We want to thank everyone who has participated, volunteered, and spoken up to support us. You are our community and we value you more than you know. Stay tuned and we’ll be back soon!

-- Paul Caporicci + Precursor team
