Leaving Lyndow Announcement

News

In September 2016, we chose to take a break from Eastshade development to make a small Eastshade spinoff called Leaving Lyndow. The reasons for this were threefold: Firstly, as an independent studio who has never shipped a game, we feel unprepared to manage the logistics of a large release like Eastshade. You only get to launch a title once, and we feel one misstep could compromise four years of perseverance. This small game gives us a chance to experience the process. Secondly, we want additional funding to supplement Eastshade’s development while still remaining independent. Finally, we feel Leaving Lyndow enriches the Eastshade universe, and is a great way to begin building out the world for people. We want to allow you all in to Eastshade's world right now! So without further ado, we present the official trailer for Leaving Lyndow.



We realize releasing a small game right in the middle of development of a larger game isn't conventional, so here's a little further explanation.

And if you support the game on greenlight we'd be ever so grateful!!

The sky is an important character in Eastshade. In this article I go in depth about how I built a flexible day/night cycle with simple parts.

I’ve done a terrible job explaining what Eastshade is like to play. We're making an effort to remedy that.

I'm following your game for quite some time now and I just bought Leaving Lyndow. Can't await to get a first impression of your art. :)
I absolutely agree with your reason of not use the early access-model for your game.
All the best with the development!

I feel really sad if this game has stopped production, it looked so beautiful and promising.

If you read this Danny, don't give up, it's something beautiful and special that I think the world will enjoy. :D

Oh thank god, you had me worrying there :D Keep up the great work Danny, the game looks absolutely beautiful (reminds me of my first time exploring the beautiful Cyrodil in TES:O.)

Have a great new years man :D

I'm absolutely loving the idea of this game! Free, open worlds without the hassle of killing enemies or scavenging resources. My biggest concern, however, is just how well this would run on older devices. I, myself, don't have the biggest and priciest card (just GeForce 860M), but I've played games before that look gorgeous without a major hit on the framerate. Now, I'm not totally sure how that would be accomplished, but I sincerely hope that's the case with this game. Awesome work so far!

I'm developing on a 7870 which isn't exactly high end. I think a 860M will be able to play it on low or medium. I'll do as much optimizing as I can to make sure people don't need crazy systems to play it.
