The extra heart of Eastward is the evident devotion of Pixpil. From the pacing that rarely hangs around in one place to the balance of offbeat video game tropes and serious drama, Eastward is a beautifully realized experience. The graphics, the games, and even the cooking system are dam near perfect, not because they are deep and complex but because they are, like Eastward, as small and perfect as Sam.
Eastward delivers so well on the writing and soundtrack front that it’s easy to forgive its otherwise simplistic gameplay. The fully realized world has its charm, but it hardly breaks the mold anywhere else. While it doesn't do anything necessarily offensive, it does demand more when the rest of the game is so well done. It’s clear Pixpil have got the writing chops down, now let’s tighten up some of the stuff around it.
Eastward proves itself to be a memorable and enjoyable mashup of many beloved classic titles, combining each of their elements together to forge something that feels distinct and engaging. Creative gameplay sequences, a heartwarming and emotional story, and a killer art style all combine to make this one easy to recommend.
