Eastshade Now Playable From “Start to Finish”, Playtime Longer Than Developer Expected

Eastshade Studios has revealed that its upcoming title Eastshade is now playable from “start to finish.”

Lead developer Danny Weinbaum stated on Twitter that he played through the game from “start to finish for the first time (stopping many times to fix progress impeding bugs),” taking him five hours to do so. However, the playtime includes skipping all of the game’s dialogue and, considering Weinbaum knows where the game’s objectives are placed, the playtime may ultimately be much longer for new players.

Eastshade is a first-person open-world exploration game, currently in development for PC. Players control a painter exploring the eponymous island as they “capture the world on canvas” and “discover mysteries and uncover secrets about the land,” according to the game’s Steam description.

OnlySP’s Andrea Giargiari conducted an interview with lead developer Danny Weinbaum in 2016, wherein Weinbaum detailed the challenge of creating fresh open world experiences.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
