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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Eastward is an adventure game with RPG elements, 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!

  1. Anyone know when this game coming out? ITS BEEN YEARS I have been waiting for this!

  2. 2020 was the original release year, but then y'all know the rest. Since March 2020 there hasn't been any updates

  3. One of the game that I'm so hype. Also did you know that there is side game (JRPG monster catching game) in the game lol. It would be so much fun. I can't wait for the release date. ๐Ÿ˜

  4. It not being a turn based action rpg makes this a win for me! So tired of seeing turn based everywhere…

  5. Does this game have a new media site? I checked their twitter and reddit and found no activity for over two years where is this info about it coming in 2021 coming from.

  6. the game didnt come out yet, how you playing it?

  7. I agree with you
    I like pixel games
    They give nostalgia

  8. I just found out about this game… it said it was coming out in 2020 on the year old announcement video ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  9. I just want a physical copy for my Switch. ๐Ÿ™

  10. This is Earthbound x Gravity Falls x Stranger Things x Megaman Music

    I love it

  11. Been waiting for more chucklefish games. They amazed me in stardew valley can't wait for witchbrook and eastward.

  12. When you talked about the deadly, toxic presence I instantly thought about Nausicaรค of the Valley of the Wind. I'm so excited to play Eastward.

  13. I only just found out about this game yesterday, and it already feels like an eternity of anticipation

  14. i am definitely looking forward to this game and it looks excellent, however, i don't care for the term pixel art. it is not an official term used to describe this graphical style. they're just pixel graphics, plain and simple. that aside it does look amazing and i look forward to playing it one day, hopefully with a physical release.

  15. I want this game so hard…. is there any new from it? My switch is waiting.

  16. Last time i talked with the dev, It was mentioned high chance before october 2021. Though they told us that they will not release the game yet if its not finished or feel rushed.

  17. i am looking forward for this one, i hope will come out soon

  18. I admit this looks really good . I have many games I havenโ€™t even played yet, but this is exciting!

  19. Indie World soon. I hope we will have a release date. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. What price you think the game will go up for ( thinking 15.00 to 30.00 )

  21. why are games like these often compared to the games from the 16 bit era, when they are infact identicle to the games released on the ds/3ds?

  22. I'm worried about replay value, the kind of replay value that Undermine, Dead cells and other power ups roguelike games have. I have a feeling this game will have an amazing story and will be a awesome one time play through. However playing over for a different experience seems unlikely.

  23. Anybody know…. this hav a release date yet…??

  24. Looks like something I would ask my husband to buy. He's a big fan of pixel-ish art like this. I hope it's co-op. ๐Ÿ˜ญ Looks really pretty and aesthetic.

  25. If you like 2D action adventure games, there is a chance we are working on one too ๐Ÿ˜‡ I have a huge passion for Zelda and those type of games! Hopefully we'll finish this game one day, been working on it for 5 years. ๐Ÿ˜…

  26. It's like earthbound gravity falls and adventure time has a threesome and came up with this game.man I can't wait to play it got it preorderd!!

  27. Im on board, looking forward for this to come out…

  28. You had me at Secret of Evermore! Not enough of us remember that one!

  29. i love hearing people get this excited about something they love its what most youtubers lack is putting out content of them they love playing instead of what will get views video liked

  30. Secret of Evermore is a great game, nice shout out. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  31. i do only have 1 critique – i would prefer to hear your voice louder than the music, you have a nice voice to listen to

    and u got a new subscriber!

  32. Thanks. This video sold me on it. I'm buying it. I'll definitely be checking back with this channel if another pixel game piques my interest.

  33. This game reminds me of Earthbound, even some of the enemies look similar.

  34. Hi there I'm a new subscriber and I just preordered recently thankyou for creating this vid and cant wait to play it.

  35. oooo I wonder what the sequel will be called? north, west, and south remain…

  36. Hello, I'm from the future on release day. This game is sick, I'm loving it so far.

  37. Found this game in my steam exploration queue on Thursday and bought it on the spot.

  38. Tik Tioc Sucks… real bad… and smells like Chinese leftovers ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ

  39. I like how the lighting is physical and takes over the screen including the UI, it gives it a old kodak or polaroid theme.

  40. Si no sabes ingles NO LO COMPRES, ES UNA MIERDA

  41. Have you played ender lilies (think that's what it's called). I want to buy a game with my new switch oled and it's going to be between that and eastward.

    I'm stuck as to what to pick.
