In this episode, I return to the demo of the pixel art indie game, EASTWARD and reveal 5 REASONS why it's already my favourite game!
EASTWARD is a stunning action-adventure RPG where you play as John and Sam, companions moving through a dying world filled with monsters. I analyize and review the genre, setting, art style, music, and John and Sam's companionship in this wonderful gameplay and story-driven experience. I'm playing this gameplay demo on the PC via Steam games, but the game will release on both the PC and Nintendo Switch.
The game needs to come out soon because I can only play the demo so many times! Who am I kidding... I'll play it again! ;)
