Hey folks! As you may have seen from Nintendo’s Indie World livestream, Eastward will be coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop in 2020!
The Nintendo Switch felt like such a natural fit for Eastward and we couldn’t be more proud to showcase Pixpil’s beautiful game on there.
If you’ve just heard about the game, Eastward is a single-player adventure game, set in a beautifully detailed decaying world, where society is starting to collapse as the human population shrinks to an all-time low.
As the world around falls to ruin, you play as a hardworking digger John, who must guide a mysterious girl named Sam through dangerous decaying cities, inhabited by strange monsters, and even stranger people!
Inspired by 90s Japanese animation, the visual style of Eastward has been brought to life using a combination of a modern, innovative 3D lighting system and a rich retro-pixel artwork.
When we first launched the Eastward trailer in April 2018, it was met with such a warm and welcoming reception by the community. The development team having been keeping their heads down, making Eastward the best it can be, but as launch inches closer we’ll be sharing updates more frequently. Often, whilst a game is in development there is often very little public feedback, so your supportive comments mean so much to us and the team at Pixpil.
If you’d like to continue following the development of Eastward be sure to follow Pixpil and Chucklefish on Twitter, and be sure to wishlist Eastward on Steam.
