We have another game announcement for you all! We’re very excited to be partnering with Pixpil, a small studio in Shanghai, to bring you Eastward!

 

 

Eastward is an adventure game combining RPG elements, with a visual style inspired by 90s Japanese animation. The game was built around pixel artist Hong Moran’s original intricate post-apocalyptic pixel designs, and the team’s joint love of the Mother and The Legend of Zelda series, inspiring them to create a narrative-driven RPG with a soft sci-fi storyline.

In the not-too-distant future, the world around is falling to ruin, as the human population shrinks to an all-time low. You play as a hardworking digger named John, who discovers a mysterious young girl in a secret facility underneath his digging site. After being exiled from his village, John must guide this girl through dangerous decaying cities, inhabited by hordes of monsters and a quirky cast of characters!

Eastward’s emotional story and beautifully rich and vibrant world has been brought to life using a combination of 3D lighting and retro-pixel style artwork, powered by a game engine of Pixpil’s own making. Development on the game started in 2015 with only 3 studio members, and since then has grown to match the game’s ambition, also bringing on board the talents of soundtrack composer Joel Corelitz (Hohokum, The Unfinished Swan & The Tomorrow Children, Gorogoa) and sound design from Irish studio, Hyperduck Soundworks.

You can find out more about Eastward on the game’s website and twitter, or follow the developers on the Pixpil twitter and tumblr. 

Stay tuned for more information as the game progresses!


Wanderlust Adventures decided it was tired of waiting to be released, so the game gained sentience overnight and launched itself on Steam — three days early! Getting Yeti Trunk‘s awesome follow-up to their debut game into the hands of players a little bit early can only be a good thing, right?

So we’re rolling with it. <3
