The Land of Eyas

JOURNEY INTO THE GRAVITY-DEFYING WORLD OF THE LAND OF EYAS

http://store.steampowered.com/app/299800

"In a battle of David and Goliath where indie game devs are David and the gaming industry is Goliath, David would actually lose the vast majority of the time despite what might have happened in the story”, mused Stephen Hoskins, founder of Happy Square Productions. “However, if you only consider the cases where indie developers do this one thing, then you will probably find that they actually win the majority of the time. That one thing that I am referring to is innovation."



In The Land of Eyas, Eyas has to learn how to navigate the strangely beautiful world using the opposing gravitational forces and objects he interacts with along the way to help him complete his quest. On his journey, he is guided by tree wisps that direct him to find the one they call Mother. By manipulating jumps between the different gravity fields, Eyas is able to use the additional momentum to sling-shot to new heights and access new areas. Each world will present its own challenges and dangerous obstacles reflected in the elegantly simple art styles that change from magical ancient forests to grim, cutting-edge industrial factories.

One of the most difficult things to achieve in game design is creating an experience that is intuitive and fun to jump into but still carries progressive depth and excitement throughout the entire game without feeling repetitive. Through some form of wizardry Happy Square Productions have demonstrated their masterful ways with their debut title, The Land of Eyas.

Opposing gravities is the foundation on which they have created the charming tale of young Eyas searching for a way Home. Magically, The Land of Eyas takes this immediately fun mechanic and continues to present new thoughtful challenges through ingenious level design. Pairing these puzzles with adorable artwork and a sensational musical production appeases both the head and heart. The Land of Eyas is a gem crafted by a team of talented and enchanting people at Happy Square Productions and we just cannot wait to bring it to Steam this Summer.
