Eastshade seems nice and relaxing at first glance. However, it only manages to be a bleak memory for me - because its world turns out to be surprisingly and disappointingly flat.

Easy to play, even easier to lose yourself in, Eastshade is a beautiful storytelling experience unlike anything else seen in the RPG genre.

Still, away from the painting what Eastshade presents is a story of unexpected depth, allowing you to get lost in its gorgeous world and cast of delightful characters. Its calming nature lures you in, the world makes you want to stay lost in its peaceful serenity.

Eastshade is visually stunning, packed with lush, vibrant colours, a touching story and wonderful characters. The game is peacefulness personified, with loads of exploration required and plenty of quests on hand, some requiring a bit of thought, other’s more of the lending of a hand nature. One thing’s for sure, Eastshade is enchanting and relaxing, and will certainly help you find inner peace.

A combat-free, refreshingly wholesome and decadent exploration focused yarn, Eastshade celebrates the spirit of discovery with aplomb and feels like the closest you'll get to a digital holiday.

Eastshade delivers an original first person walker experience with its anthropomorphic world where all you have to do is paint. Too bad its lacky graphics and chaotic frame rate ruins the mood more than once, because its wonderful soundtrack leaves the player with a strange bliss sensation. The benefit of a walk in the forest, no doubt.

Eastshade is a wonderful surprise. A videogame in which violence is not contemplated and which gives free rein to the exploration of the world, as well as the discovery of the characters that populate it. The artistic direction is also fantastic, lending itself perfectly to the protagonist's brushes. Despite some small technical issues, Eastshade is an incredibly deep and relaxing experience.
