Hello everyone!
We are a small studio from Shanghai. Gentleman

We are currently working on a game project named Eastward.

In the world of EW,  human societies are isolated and shrinking, due to some severe environmental problem.  
You will be playing a 'father' with a following 'daughter',  and go through this post-apocalyptic world ( well, that does sound familiar ...  Roll Eyes ).



The game will be an action adventure. We hope it will be like a Zelda game with some JRPG style storyline.
It's going to be released on Steam first ( of course we'd like to get it on the consoles if it's possible  Tongue )









The game use a special "retro-pixel + 3D lighting" visual style. We aim to achieve a feeling close to Japanese animation from 90s.





----

We use our in-house framework based on great MOAI engine (http://www.getmoai.com), a cross-platform C++ engine written for Lua.  
We have an IDE on top of MOAI with help of Python & QT.  We will write more about the engine part in future updates.


----

The project is still in very early stage. We'll try best to keep updating this devlog as often as possible.

Please feel free to share us your ideas!

Thank you!  Coffee

Haha, while I was reading and scrolling, I thought "This look like the backdrop to an anime mov... yep! Guessed it!"

The artwork is stunning, but I am s curious as to what route the story is going to run. The art makes me think of Tekkonkinkreet.

Holy shit that art!  I love how it's so detailed, yet still has a retro-esque feel to it.
