It was everything I wanted it to be and more. The world was beautiful and expansive, the storytelling was not only strong but often masterful, and the whole package left me with that post-game hangover that has you putting down every game after it. It’s still early 2019, but I have no doubt that Eastshade will remain one of my favorite games of the year and one of my very favorite exploration games of all time. If it were up to me, I’d never take that final ship back out of Lyndow.
Eastshade is an entrancing journey through a beautifully and lovingly made world, and you can really see why it took so many years to make. It manages to balance relaxing exploration with an actual game and gameplay. Eastshade may not appeal to everyone, but those looking for a gentle, magical exploration game may have found it in Eastshade. There are a number of ‘relax-em-ups’ on the market, but the odd flaw doesn’t stop Eastshade being one of the best available.
But even with these quibbles using image capture as part of the game is fascinating. Tying it to a finite resource and making you compose a shot before you paint means you make decisions about what to capture in a different way to normal screenshotting. As someone who also loved the film camera in Firewatch, I’d love to see more developers play in this space.
