Head East, Young Squire
Chucklefish has a good habit of publishing unique and retro-themed indie games. So it’s no surprise they’re publishing Pixpil Games’ Eastward. What is news came today from the Indie World Showcase. They announced that Eastward is arriving on Nintendo Switch on September 16th as a timed console exclusive. Pre-orders are also officially open now.
Not familiar with Eastward? It contends with a subterranean society and a dynamic duo on a journey together. Switch between John and Sam to use unique skills and puzzle your way forwards. Travel cross country and defeat dangerous monsters using a array of different weapons. Use toxic ingredients to craft amazing food, and maybe get some answers along the way.
I really am drawn by the visual style of Eastward, and hope it’s a journey worth taking. Be sure to stay tuned to HPP for more news from the Indie World Showcase. And check out Eastward on PC and Switch later this year.
