Gorgeous Pixelated RPG Adventure Game “Eastward” Heads to PC and Mac

We’ve been covering Shanghai-based developer Pixpil Games’ gorgeous and pixelated adventure RPG Eastward for some time now. Now, the game has been picked up by publisher Chucklefish, and is finally set for a release on Windows PC and Mac.

The game is described as a “dual character adventure RPG with puzzle-solving and dungeon elements” with a “visual style inspired by 90s Japanese animation.” Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game and its latest build.

Here’s some key features:

  • Single player, dual character adventure RPG with puzzle-solving and dungeon elements
  • Join John and Sam in their emotional journey across a world falling to ruin
  • Meet a quirky cast of characters and encounter strange monsters and distant cities
  • Beautifully rich pixel art style, created using a combination of modern 3D lighting and retro-pixel style artwork
  • Soundtrack composed by Joel Corelitz (Hohokum, The Unfinished Swan, The Tomorrow Children, Gorogoa), with sound design from Irish studio, Hyperduck Soundworks

Here are some screenshots:

A release window for Eastward isn’t confirmed, however, with a publisher they’re sure to get the game done sooner rather than later. For now, you can peruse the game’s official website.
