Eastshade certainly looks like a wonderfully peaceful experience and the new trailer show it off rather well, it's releasing soon too on February 13th.

Check out the stunning new trailer:

Considering how impressed I was with their previous game Leaving Lyndow, I'm pretty interested to see what they can do with a much bigger game and better Linux support (see here).

It will feature:

  • A peaceful open-world exploration-adventure full of character
  • Compose paintings anywhere in the world and offer them to the locals to unlock secrets and gain items
  • Acquire crafting materials and schematics to surmount obstacles and solve quests
  • Make friends along the way through fully-voiced dynamic conversations and unlockable topics

Considering most open world experiences end up full of combat, it could be an interesting break for those who've grown tired of the destruction.

Find it on Steam.

Leaving Lyndow was a little disappointment for me.
I was prepeared that it's short, but it felt... empty.

It is also pretty cheap. It actually looks like it may have been a tech demo for this one. Still not sure how this one will make an interesting game though. The trailer is kind of vague.

I do not regret buying leaving Lyndow. Cheap and had an ambiance. This one looks interesting. Maybe i will end up complaining it is not on GoG.

Done that already, so lets hope we'll be able to skip the tutorial :-).

Seriously, just judging by his show, Bob Ross seemed like a pretty cool guy. Liked his soothing voice, and while his "art" was not so great in the grand scheme of things, I was always fascinated to see it come together in such little time.

Would have been nice if the painting process in Eastshade would be a bit like that (the painting manifesting itself in layers, in a short animation). Instead it looks more like a reverse gaussian blur. A bit simplistic, in my book, given that it's one of the main gameplay elements.

This is the perfect game to chill out after getting angry with other games.

Having taken up painting IRL six months ago, this looks interesting! Granted the actual game mechanic is more like photography, but the process of composing a painting is pretty similar to composing a photograph (another hobby of mine)…

Has been released and does not support Linux.
