Eastshade is an adventure exploration game and the first production by Eastshade Studios.
The game is set in a peaceful magical land. You play as a wandering painter, who arrived on the eponymous island of Eastshade, renowned for its beautiful landscapes. Your main task is to capture the beauty of the island's environment with your paint, but soon you start to interact with the locals. You also learn their stories and problems, develop friendships, and try to help those who need it.
Eastshade utilizes a first person's perspective, and while the gameplay focuses on exploration, there are also more traditional mechanics. The island is full of secrets and features many places the protagonist can's reach at first. You have to find ways to overcome natural obstacles in your path, which often calls for finding the right resources and combining them into useful items using the crafting system.
Your actions and choices have significant consequences and shape the fate of the locals. Instead of one big story, the developers created several smaller ones, connected to given inhabitants of the island. You can interact with the locals by using a dialogue system or performing certain actions. They can also be affected by your paintings. Creating a painting is simple: the interface allows you to capture any fragment of the environment withing a frame, and the protagonist performs all the necessary motions with the paintbrush.
