Play OverviewPlay Overview

Eastshade (2019) is a slow exploration game in a world you explore by walking around. Here, though, you play as a painter of landscapes rather than typical hero. Your mission is to paint your deceased mother’s favourite sights, but it's the world and its inhabitants itself that takes centre stage. Along the way you encounter anthropomorphic animals who tell you about their lives of love, loss and toil.

Eastshade is like the Bob Ross of adventure games. Instead of combat or collection, there is painting. It's slow, easy and relaxing. There is a trail of small stories to follow. There are daily newspapers to read that flesh out the back story. It's the sort of game you play to spend time in another world.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Eastshade 4 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 22 months ago.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

This game has been rated PEGI 7 for depictions of implied violence to humans. This game contains infrequent depictions of implied violence to humans where the actual violence is not shown. The most pertinent example of this can be found if the player antagonizes an NPC causing them to punch you. When this happens the screen quickly cuts to black as a punching sound can be heard. The camera then fades back with the player in another location. A similar event can happen if the player stays outside at night without the correct equipment. If they step outside without provisions the edges of the screen will begin to frost up and the characters breath can be seen. If you don’t make it inside in time, the screen will fade to black and you will wake up in your bed unharmed.

Skill Level

7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. You could play from a young age, although you do need to read the dialogue to follow the story and progress. Although it's single player, it works well as a shared story.
