Ice Water Games' Eidolon is a first person exploration/survival game set in a massive, stylized wilderness. In this overview video, I take my first steps into the wild.
The pace is meditative, the gameplay is simple, and the narrative is as giant and nuanced as the world itself.
While exploring the team's vision of a "post-human Western Washington," you need to take care of yourself, foraging, hunting or fishing for food, staying warm, and taking care of injuries. Failure to do so means getting sick — which usually means throwing up and subsequently starving. It's the most beautiful game that my playable character has ever lost their lunch in.
Eidolon is available now on Windows PC and Mac.
