Norse RPG Eternity: The Last Unicorn to Release Early March

Published

Eternity

Eternity: The Last Unicorn, a cross-section of Norse mythology by Void Studios, has an official release date of March 5.

Eternity has so far flown under the radar. Gameplay-wise, the title is an action-RPG, arguing that its antiquated and classic-focused design is meant to carry a sense of nostalgia.

In terms of art direction, the concept certainly scratches that early 2000s RPG itch.

The game features a fixed camera system, borrowing heavily from old-school RPG titles. Coupled with this are traditional skill, weapon, and progression systems, as well as stripped-back combat.

The title is, however, a distinctly budget affair, with its visuals and overall game design looking a little dated in the trailer. Hopefully, its Norse focus, nostalgia, and core systems are enough to make up for its overall aesthetic.

Check out the trailer, embedded below:

Eternity is set to release March 5 on PC and PlayStation 4, with a later release date on Xbox One. For more from the world of single-player, be sure to follow OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

 on

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
