Former Bioware/Ubisoft Devs Are Making A New Action-Adventure Called Eternal Strands

Developer Yellow Brick Games, a new game development studio founded by AAA industry vets, including the longtime creative director of BioWare’s Dragon Age series, Mike Laidlaw, has announced Eternal Strands, an action-adventure that blends Zelda with Shadow of the Colossus-like giant boss fights. Check out the world premiere of the reveal trailer as part of IGN First!

I can see a lot of the games that might have inspired this. Good shet. Here's hoping this turns out good.

This is not Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Re-Re Reckoning?

SimpleSlave17d ago (Edited 17d ago )

lol. It does have some of that too. Yeah, I can see it in the map shots and the art style.

It also has some Breath of the Wild, Dragon's Dogma, Prey (2017), Shadow of the Colossus, even some Attack on Titan with the constant shots of the Character trying to cut the back of their necks. There's even that one move that Brad Pitt does in the movie Troy. And I'm pretty sure I'm missing a lot more.

But you know what? It does look fun and promising. So we'll see.

Looks unique. We need to support devs that leave these AAA studios and make their own studio and games. If we want the industry to thrive.

did you really say that this game looks...unique?

Aesthetically it looks like a generic mobile game, but gameplay seems like it has potential.

With more DEI and ESG in the mix.

I have to agree, I'm sure the developers spent a lot of time on this but feels too similar to all the other games of that style.

Its got that immortal phoenix rising shit smear all over it. Hope the gameplay is fun though.

i'm not. however, it takes a pretty extreme aesthetic to annoy me. like i love every cel shaded game and and this style too. as well as most anime.
