A Survival Game Where You Can't Actually Die

Luke already wrote a bit about Eidolon, the zombie-less, crafting-free survival game, but I figured I'd give it a try as well. The game is massive and mysterious, a ringing, pristine silence after a disaster. It really is incredible to explore, even if not a lot happens sometimes. Watch my video and see for yourself.

A few things to note:

1) This came from about an hour-and-a-half of playtime. I just edited it down a lot because there were long stretches of aimless wandering. Not that aimless wandering is a bad thing; it's just not very interesting to watch.

2) I only found the tip of the iceberg in terms of story and other signs of long-gone life. Apparently it gets pretty crazy the further you go. This video is only a small taste.

3) You don't actually die in Eidolon so much as you lose consciousness and then wake up in a peaceful forest, tools still intact. That said...

4) Fuck that bear, man. Seriously. Fuck that fucking bear.


    Like Proteus?

      Looks like it. Although he does say the video has been edited from an hour and a half of play time, so it's at least twice as long as Proteus.

      For the record, I dug Proteus. Best come-down game, ever.
