Eternal Spirit sees you following the experiences of Izna, a young girl on a journey to banish an ancient evil that is currently residing in an abandoned monastery.
Inspired by the spirituality of Tibetan culture, Eternal Spirit has you playing as Izna as she is guided by her own spiritual moose. You are on a journey of self-discovery and to destroy the evils that lurk in a seemingly-abandoned part of the world. As you move around this beautiful place, you are able to meditate and pray to gain more power and open up new areas. You will find various points to stop and meditate, causing different blue particles to swim around you and attach themselves to your clothing. The power you gain from meditation or prayer will then allow you to move forward, activating doors and portals to new areas.
Your moose does more than just guide you around the world – you can also mount them and ride them quickly, moving around through new areas. At points in the game, you need to ride your moose, gliding quickly forward while collecting items from the spiritual world, while other times you can move around faster on your moose or allow them to wander off and call them back when needed.
I recently played Eternal Spirits at EGX 2018 and really enjoyed the demo showcased. Not only does it feature striking lands and visuals, but the game itself feels powerful. Your moose guide also has some cool AI features that allows it to wander off and be moody in a way that animals would be in real life.
There isn’t currently a release date on Eternal Spirits, but you can follow the game’s development on Twitter.
