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.

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?
  • Nietzsche
    Nietzsche What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (44 minutes ago)
  • Nietzsche
    Nietzsche @KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (45 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog They want you spending hundreds amassing a room full of dollar store garbage while you search out a t-shirt that actually looks like it wasnt designed by a monkey, (58 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I don't like lootcrate/nerd block for the same reasons. Yes you MIGHT get something cool, but that glimmer of hope is exactly what those companies are exploiting. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog But obviously thats just a single pay ent pirchase. Pubs want you spending weekly unlocking content you might not not even want or need. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (1 Hour ago)
  • Nietzsche
    Nietzsche but I do think overwatch does it in a much less harmful way than most others (3 Hours ago)
