The extremely pretty Eidolon is out now – an explore-them-up set in a future Washington that has been reclaimed by Nature. Unquestionably looking like Shelter meets Proteus, it plays differently to both, this game primarily a survival simulator. However, with no information at all, including that bit, I started playing and recorded my efforts. You can watch them below.
Just before I started recording, I fell off a mountain. It left me not very well. Soon after I started recording, something ate my face. And so it was to be that this became a 45 minute explore and slow degradation unto death. But gosh, such a pretty one.
Since recording I’ve played some more, and learned that I was a little unfair regarding food – it seems my rapid hunger was more to do with my injuries, and restarting as a healthier figure has seen my cooked fish consumption drop significantly. I’ve also discovered that the game does rearrange itself somewhat to adjust for your walking from pre-ordained paths, and provide items in different ways. Which is rather ace. I shall write more about the game soon.
