After 5 years in development, Eastshade has a release date, a new trailer and confirmation on a console version.
FingerGuns regulars will remember Eastshade from our “60 Indie Games To Look Forward to in 2019” article. For those that missed that piece (go read it) it’s a peaceful, open-world exploration-adventure game where you play as a travelling painter who navigates the fantastical island of Eastshade. It has been looking incredible for months and today, developer Danny Weinbaum dropped some excellent news – a release date.
After five years of toiling, Eastshade, the open-world adventure where you play as a traveling artist, will be releasing for PC February 13 this year! https://t.co/XEvdXhF6xq

That’s right. Clear your calendar on February 13th, 2019 because Eastshade is hitting PC’s. The announcement comes with a new trailer too which, I think you’ll agree, is pretty damn enticing. You can wish list the game here on Steam.
Interestingly, this trailer comes with a description which confirms a console version is in development. While no platforms are currently confirmed, the console version is apparently “soon to follow”.
According to Steam, Eastshade features;
- A peaceful open-world exploration-adventure full of character
- Compose paintings anywhere in the world and offer them to the locals to unlock secrets and gain items
- Acquire crafting materials and schematics to surmount obstacles and solve quests
- Make friends along the way through fully-voiced dynamic conversations and unlockable topics
