CEO Shawn Jackson also assures that all pledges will be refunded if that happens.
Precursor Games, made up of former Silicon Knights employees, has been under much scrutiny since revealing the spiritual sequel to Eternal Darkness, namely Shadow of the Eternals. Some of that scrutiny came from the crowd-funding done through the developer’s site (which didn’t carry the same refund guarantee that Kickstarter does), though a Kickstarter campaign was later launched.
In a Reddit AMA, Precursor Games CEO Shawn Jackson answered questions about the game’s funding. In the event of the Kickstarter failing, would development continue? “Since we do not have any other source of funding, it is unlikely”.
Jackson also stated that, “If the project does not reach it’s goal on Kickstarter, we will refund all pledges made through PayPal on our own site.
“We will entertain all options to make this game a reality because we believe in this project. However, we can’t be sure a publisher will share our vision for interacting with the community during development or this would work in the traditional model.”
