It is a fantastic journey through an unknown world in Virtual Reality, taking the player on an odyssey full of suspense and mystery.
The main characters of Eden-Tomorrow are a duo of a human being plagued by amnesia and a drone that calls itself 'Newton', both with different powers and skills. They must work together to survive on this alien and hostile planet.
In the course of the game the player gets more and more indications as to what might have happened to human, Newton and this world.

While the story in Eden Tomorrow is intriguing, there are simply too many frustrating mechanics to look past. The quality of the narrative is overwhelmed by repetitive puzzles, and a strange combination of completely linear gameplay and an occasional lack of direction. This is a game that would have been much better had the developers given up on the puzzles, and simply told a story.
Eden-Tomorrow's noteworthy narrative drowns amongst a sea of repetitive, mediocre gameplay. It does nothing to differentiate itself within an increasingly cluttered genre, and so the experience is forgotten about before you've even had time to comprehend the potential of a deeper meaning.
Eden Tomorrow feels like a new developer's first outing. The gameplay is basic, repetitive, and just plain boring. The narrative would be solid, were it not shoved in your face by your flying robot companion. Aside from the music, I found myself almost completely uninvested in the game past the first hour or so. Even the occasional towering visual set piece wasn't enough to elevate the experience. And with so many deeper, more involved experiences on the PSVR platform, Eden Tomorrow feels like a step back.
