Precursor Games

Earlier today, Shawn Jackson of Precursor Games started an AMA on Reddit. After a couple hours, a lot of the answers Shawn has given have been information that’s already been known, such as what kind of game Shadow of the Eternals is, how it’s connected to Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, their relationship with Nintendo regarding the project, etc.

Menshae of Nintendo Enthusiast asked a couple questions as well. These questions asked about Denis Dyack’s involvement, which has been a point of contention since the Shadow of the Eternals project began, how the project’s assets were obtained, and whether the allegations in the Kotaku article were true. In regards to why Precursor brought Dyack on board, he had this to say.

“(a) We hired him because he’s a valuable asset to the team. (b) We intend to show people the real Denis Dyack through his interactions on the forums and videos. Denis has made many successful games and ran independent studio for over 20 years. (c) We didn’t anticipate a backlash because we actually know Denis as the person he is. (d) No game is immune from being cancelled or delayed. (e) We believe in Denis and with him focusing on creative, he is excelling at something that he loves. (f) Paul Caporicci founded Precursor Games and is the CEO.”

As for the allegations from the infamous Kotaku article, Shawn stated that they were completely false. He said that they came from a small amount of disgruntled employees, whereas most of the people who worked at Silicon Knights enjoyed working there.
