"Eidolon is different. There have been other “walk-‘em-ups,” as I’ve dubbed them, like Dear Esther or Gone Home, but Eidolon is on a different scale, telling the story of a culture rather than a couple or a family. Those who suffer from short attention spans may become infuriated at the slow speed of travel across the land, or frustrated at the general lack of direction or purpose in the game. However, Eidolon is like life; its purpose is what you will make of it. We’re only alive for a limited time, and for goodness sake we should make the most of it while we can. If you come to Eidolon with an open mind, it will give a lot in return."
