Eastshade unveils its charms

Eastshade unveils its charms

As you know, we love it when a game manages take us on a memorable journey, when it allows us to explore new sensations and discover something new. Eastshade might very well be one of these games. We were just contacted by Danny Weinbaum, who used to work as a 3d artist at Sucker Punch (inFamous: Second Son) and we were immediately intrigued by his studio's first title. You'll play the role of a painter who will be able to compose his own paintings anywhere in the world, interact with the people he will come across and craft various things in order to overcome obstacles. Apparently, your choices and actions will have an impact on the world and you'll have to take responsibility for your behavior somehow. The game has been announced on PC for an early 2017 release but more systems are planned already. Trailer and images inside.

Official website


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.

The houses look extremely similar (inside and out) to some of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind houses (which although derivative is a good thing) would love to play that with these graphics. although these graphics could do with more polygons, there are a lot of large visible polygons which I don't think should be the case in 2016 or 17.

Cool idea. Kinda wish the actual painting was more involved than a polaroid that develops on an easel.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @KORNdog: the headset itself is selling for almost $600. It's unusually expensive considering there's proper distribution of sony products here in retail. (58 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: it seems cheaper to break things down and buy older stick. Like the sqare design camera can be had for less than the new one. And old move controllers less than the ore packaged VR ones. (1 Hour ago)

    crookedmind ... in Doom 3 I was begging for the game to end after 300 something levels, Doom kept me interested the entire time. They tried to keep to their simple FPS gameplay, and they succeeded. (2 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @Tinks: It's Doom, and stays true to its series. I personally enjoyed the single player (uncharacteristically) a lot... (3 Hours ago)
