Default Chucklefish Games - Announce Eastward

April 27th, 2018, 14:51
@Gematsu Chucklefish have announced Eastward, an adventure RPG game about a world falling into ruin.

Here is an overview of the game, via Pixpil:

About


Eastward is an adventure game with RPG elements, set in a beautifully detailed decaying world, where society is starting to collapse as the human population shrinks to an all-time low. As the world around falls to ruin, you play as a hardworking digger John, who must guide a mysterious girl named Sam through dangerous decaying cities, inhabited by strange monsters, and even stranger people! Inspired by 90s Japanese animation, the visual style of Eastward has been brought to life using a combination of a modern, innovative 3D lighting system and a rich retro-pixel artwork.

History

Development started on Eastward at Pixpilís Shanghai office in 2015, with only 3 team members, using a game engine of the studioís own making. Built around pixel artist Hong Moranís original intricate post-apocalyptic pixel designs, and the teamís love of the Mother and The Legend of Zelda series and older Japanese animation styles, Pixpil were inspired to create a narrative driven RPG with a soft sci-fi storyline. Since then not only the ambitions of the game has grown, but also the team, now sitting at 10 members strong as they work towards the PC and Mac release.

Key Features

  • Single player, dual character adventure RPG with puzzle-solving and dungeon elements.
  • Join John and Sam in their emotional journey across a world falling to ruin.
  • Meet a quirky cast of characters and encounter strange monsters and distant cities.
  • Beautifully rich pixel art style, created using a combination of modern 3D lighting and retro-pixel style artwork.
  • Soundtrack composed by Joel Corelitz (Hohokum, The Unfinished Swan, The Tomorrow Children, Gorogoa), with sound design from Irish studio, Hyperduck Soundworks.

If most modern pixel art was like this I would have a lot less of a problem with it. This is very nice.

Very excited for this one. Has a Stardew Valley aesthetic, which I'm completely fine with.

And Hyperduck Soundworks? Excellent!! Love their music in Dust: An Elysian Tail and Cosmic Star Heroine.
