Eastshade, an indie title long in development, promises perhaps one of the most relaxing and tranquil open-world experiences we’ve witnessed yet. For those keeping a close and eager eye on the fascinating Eastshade, January 8 was the day to celebrate. Developer Danny Weinbaum of Eastshade Studios announced on January 8 through Twitter: “After five years of toiling, Eastshade, the open-world adventure where you play as a traveling artist, will be releasing for PC February 13 this year!” The canvas-crafting adventure describes itself with the following:
“You are a traveling painter, exploring the island of Eastshade. Capture the world on canvas using your artist’s easel. Talk to the inhabitants to learn about their lives. Make friends and help those in need. Discover mysteries and uncover secrets about the land. Surmount natural impasses to reach forgotten places. Experience how your actions impact the world around you.”
In Eastshade, the world around you fairly breathes. Conversations are dynamic, and quests have you traversing a land filled with wonder and beauty. There’s no need to duck dragons or wildly cast spells in Eastshade‘s peaceful lands — instead, the island of Eastshade is your oyster, and you are wholly at your leisure to appreciate and enjoy what Eastshade Studios lovingly has in store for you. Eastshade releases for PC on February 13 on Steam, with console release announcements coming soon.
