She needs to complete preparations, visit her favorite places, and say her goodbyes before leaving on a journey she may not return from. *dangerous journey not included*

Leaving Lyndow Announcement


In September 2016, we chose to take a break from Eastshade development to make a small Eastshade spinoff called Leaving Lyndow. The reasons for this were threefold: Firstly, as an independent studio who has never shipped a game, we feel unprepared to manage the logistics of a large release like Eastshade. You only get to launch a title once, and we feel one misstep could compromise four years of perseverance. This small game gives us a chance to experience the process. Secondly, we want additional funding to supplement Eastshade’s development while still remaining independent. Finally, we feel Leaving Lyndow enriches the Eastshade universe, and is a great way to begin building out the world for people. We want to allow you all in to Eastshade's world right now! So without further ado, we present the official trailer for Leaving Lyndow.

We realize releasing a small game right in the middle of development of a larger game isn't conventional, so here's a little further explanation.

And if you support the game on greenlight we'd be ever so grateful!!
