Ocean Drive Studio announced a Kickstarter campaign for Lost Eidolons. The game will arrive on PC via Steam Early Access and Xbox consoles.
Lost Eidolons takes players to the fantasy world of Artemesia, where they help the mercenary Eden and his compatriots overthrow a tyrannical despot to return peace to the empire. Players will need strategic planning through the title’s deep unit management systems to accompany savvy tactical gameplay if they are going to conquer the game’s tactical turn-based grid combat. The game will feature a new story to accompany dozens of hours of strategy and tactical play to challenge and reward players.
Ocean Drive explains in a new video how Kickstarter backers will be welcomed to the game’s community for playtests, to share feedback, and help Ocean Drive to make the next great title in the genre.
Lost Eidolons was initially revealed as part of the recent ID@Xbox Indie Showcase, the game will first be released on PC, Ocean Drive confirms. Interested PC players can visit the Steam page to learn more.
