Thats really cool talk :)

Wow it's so refreshing to see projects inspired by serious cinema and even more literature, most 3D artist I know probably never heard of Tarkovsky and wouldn't go through an Art film that is "foreign", 2.5 hours and has really slow shots. It's a shame, there's so much inspiration out there waiting to be taken from all the brilliant XX century Masters of cinema... Keep up the good work, I really hope to see more stuff from you.

Eastward - Japanese Style Mixed with The Legend of Zelda

Chucklefish, the developer of Starbound, and Pixpil announced a new game called Eastward. The project is described as an adventure experience that mixes RPG elements and style inspired by 90s Japanese animation. Eastward revolves around pixel artist Hong Moran’s post-apocalyptic pixel designs. The team also mentioned the Mother and The Legend of Zelda series as the main sources of inspiration. What we’ll get is an RPG with a nice sci-fi storyline.

In the not-too-distant future, the world around is falling to ruin, as the human population shrinks to an all-time low. You play as a hardworking digger named John, who discovers a mysterious young girl in a secret facility underneath his digging site. After being exiled from his village, John must guide this girl through dangerous decaying cities, inhabited by hordes of monsters and a quirky cast of characters!

Eastward’s emotional story and beautifully rich and vibrant world have been brought to life using a combination of 3D lighting and retro-pixel style artwork, powered by a game engine of Pixpil’s own making. Development on the game started in 2015 with only 3 studio members, and since then has grown to match the game’s ambition, also bringing on board the talents of soundtrack composer Joel Corelitz (Hohokum, The Unfinished Swan & The Tomorrow Children, Gorogoa) and sound design from Irish studio, Hyperduck Soundworks.
