Eastshade offers a very unique take on a walking simulator with RPG questing elements. The innocent simplistic lives people live make you feel at ease. The quests may not have exciting boss fights but this lack of combat allows you to drop your guard and absorb the beauty of the environment. While it is disappointing the console versions of the game are visually weak, you will still be able to appreciate the beauty. Even a rainy day in Eastshade is a pleasurable experience.
Eastshade is the perfect definition of “pretty but shallow”. It’s a gorgeous game with fantastic art and sound design marred by numerous technical issues and abysmal pacing. A game in which you use painting skills to solve puzzles and explore the world is a great idea in theory, but there’s not a lot you can do with the concept here.
Still, away from the painting what Eastshade presents is a story of unexpected depth, allowing you to get lost in its gorgeous world and cast of delightful characters. Its calming nature lures you in, the world makes you want to stay lost in its peaceful serenity.
