I’ve killed a lot of things in video games. I’ve seen a lot of action. More than a few explosions. It’s been great and all, but a wise man once said “life in the fast lane will surely make you lose your mind.” Sometimes you just want something a little more slow-paced.
Eastshade looks to be providing exactly that, and a trailer showcasing the game’s beautiful landscapes was just released today. Rather than make wild guesses at the game’s content, I’ll let the developers speak for themselves.
“You are a traveling painter, exploring the island of Eastshade. Capture the world on canvas using your artist’s easel. Talk to the inhabitants to learn about their lives. Make friends and help those in need. Discover mysteries and uncover secrets about the land. Surmount natural impasses to reach forgotten places. Experience how your actions impact the world around you.”
One entry in their dev blog is entitledand they’re quick to indicate that Eastshade has goals, mechanics, and systems. They’re just non-violent and exploration focused. The trailer actually gave me a bit of an Elder Scrolls vibe, and exploring a big fantasy world without monsters to contend with sounds pretty interesting. Plus, it looks absolutely gorgeous.
Eastshade doesn’t yet have a release date, but it will be available for both PC and consoles. You can check out more details at the.
