What a wonderfully strange game. I could lose myself in this on a bad day. Thank you B&B!
crying shame this is only available on PC cause this looks like my kind of jam. i fucking hate exclusivity.
This seems like the chillest game of 2019 yet.
@kanuuna: too bad it's PC only and you have to sit at a desk and use office equipment to play it

@brad Bears are e-fish-ent
Good thing gaming PCs aren't office equipment, and you don't have to sit at a desk to use them.
This seems like a game that will get ported eventually so i wouldn't worry, but there are streaming devices and laptops if you need to get away from a desk. (I just got a steam link for like $12).I played Myst on a PC... And like, a lot of other games at a desk in my comfy chair. (Not sure why PC's are evil?).

I really like low key wandering games.More please!
@perkotreason Got a Raspberry Pi or Android TV box, like an Amazon Fire Stick, etc? Just install Steam Link to it, and you can play your PC games on there, away from the PC. Steam Link is great when it comes to letting you map mouse/KB controls to a gamepad as well.

Was this comment transported from 2008?
The voice acting is throwing me off, they all sound bored and or tired reading their lines.
It's Bojan (soft J) not Bođan. :facepalm:
@shtinky: that all sounds lovely but my computer struggles running morrowind no fucking way could it run this game. so frustrating.
that and i have no idea what literally any of those things you mentioned is.
@mbr2: no but it was made by a person with a job that requires them to sit in front of a computer all day using his mouse and keyboard. it’s office equipment. may as well be playing on the fax machine.

@mbr2: Yes, I think so.
(Currently typing this on a wireless keyboard that's connected to my PC which is connected to a large screen TV...)
@squidracerx: it’s not about the desk, it’s about i probably need a goddamn NASA level computer to run this and my mac is shit. it’s annoying. why every single game isn’t cross platform in 2019 is a fucking mystery to me. i hate pc gaming.
"I don't think Bojan is the writing type" is my favorite quote of 2019 so far
why every single game isn’t cross platform in 2019 is a fucking mystery to me.
I can help solve that mystery: it's because if you're a small team building an experimental game that has a good chance of not making back its development costs, it doesn't make sense to spend an additional 5-digit sum on porting, rating, and certification for consoles. Especially when most of the audience for experimental games is on PC anyway. (RIP XBLIG.) The cost of shipping a game on PC is the cost of making the game, plus $100 if you want it on Steam.
@perkotreason: Indie games typically always come to the PC first, because it's an easier / cheaper platform to develop, publish and maintain games on. The fact you're surprised by this in 2019, on a site that covers a lot of exclusive PC indie games no less, is very strange.
But what you were saying about PC gaming requiring a desk, mouse and keyboard, etc, is false. PC gaming is all about options; you can play your PC as if it were like a console, thanks to things like Steam Link, the nVidia Shield or just by hooking it up to your TV, etc.
I am going to ask everybody I meet going forward "is your favorite color orange or yellow?"
I'm so glad this isn't just more Passpartout. This looks fantastic.
@shtinky: well yes you can solve any problem if you throw enough money at it

You can literally just hook the box up to your TV. Since you seem to have no interest in using a PC at a desk, simply putting the box next to your TV and running an HDMI cable between them sounds like it would be the preferred solution in your case.
But throwing enough money at the problem is the only solution to not having a PC capable of running games that are only available on that platform. I'm having a similar problem with the Switch.
I've put in about 5-1/2 into Eastshade and am really enjoying it. After only playing AC: Odyssey and Anthem over the last 2.5 months, this is a perfect change of pace. There are some small problems but wandering around this funny little world is very relaxing. There's no caveats or apologies I need to make to myself about my time in the game.
@perkotreason: In that case, just connect the PC to the TV by a HDMI cable, then run something like Steam Big Picture for a console style UI.
I love this game.
really happy you guys did a quick look of this game, been really enjoying it
Looks like a mod of Skyrim/Oblivion
Hmm..I wonder if they had to license the engine from Bethesda, since this is an official game for sale and not a free mod.
Guy asks for a painting of his house. Ben reads it as a painting for his house and doesn't realize why he wont take the other picture. The Quick Look curse strikes again.
The look reminds me of how I remember Oblivion looking! Music too!
Why are people fawning over this? Is there more to this loop of "get object xyz into camera frame/repeat?" Is the painting more than an abstraction of photography? Brad asked a great question, are there filters to differntiate painting styles, etc. No?
Did the lady at 19:00 think the painting of a tree was a painting of an eclipse, when the moon wasn't in frame at all? So this game fucks up the one mechanic is has?
What purpose does the collecting have other than disguising this loop? Is there some kind of warmth mechanic - Ben ran back to town when it thought it was getting dark, but didn't mention why.
I might have missed it, but why did they not address the freezing that happens every 20-30 seconds? Looking at steam reviews, it seems like the main thing people are complaining about.
This game makes me think of the Shire.
Is the game actually cutting off the characters' heads or is there something wrong with the capture? I noticed that the Textorcist had some cropping issue, so could be the same here.
This might be one of the dumbest comments I've read in a while... I'm sitting on my couch playing this with a controller. Keep on being nearsighted and reductive though, it's really doing you credit.
@perkotreason: Was the last time you saw a PC in the '80s? You can play most PC games with a controller now (including this one), and there's no law against hooking one up to a TV (mine is as we speak). Also, this game isn't "exclusive" to PC. It just hasn't gotten a port to any other platforms yet. Be more patient and less salty, please.
Getting really strong like Morrowind vibes off this, in terms of the setting and music and everything. Looks great. I love a good reason to walk around, be kind to people and essentially use a photo mode.

The FOV on this video is kinda giving me a headache while watching. That normally doesn't affect me that way.

You can hook up a PC to your living room TV. I'm typing this on my couch right now.
Anyone familiar with the relationship to this game and Eastshade's last one, Leaving Lyndow? I'm curious if it's a direct sequel.
Use your keyboard!
