Cult classic Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem rocked the GameCube in 2002, with tricks and gimmicks that kept gamers on their toes for the duration of the experience. Although I spent the majority of my time cursing out Silicon Knights for their evilly terrifying design, the past ten years have been spent lamenting the lack of a sequel.
Founder and president of Silicon Knights, Denis Dyack, has always been vocal about his interest in expanding the Eternal Darkness, but it always seemed like a project they would never get to.
Luckily, in an interview with GamesIndustry International, Silicon Knights founder and president Denis Dyack said that his studio is open to creating a sequel for the next generation of consoles. Dyack couldn’t comment on what the studio is currently creating, but when pressed further, he said “anything’s possible.”
Time to get our hopes up? Probably. I mean, look at what Tim Schafer did in a day. Fans of the game have been clamoring for a sequel since Dyack let the bomb drop that Eternal Darkness was never meant to be a stand-alone title. Knowing what the gaming community can band together and fund, we’re a few Kickstarters away from Eternal Darkness 2: Where Have All the Ancients Gone?
Dyack also let GamesIndustry know how special Eternal Darkness is to the studio, saying “Certainly we love Eternal Darkness. It’s a project that’s near and dear to our hearts.” Obviously, Dyack. You and everyone else who owned a GameCube.
