Upside down you’re turning me, so use the gravity instinctively
“The fine folks at Rising Star Games are stellar promo experts that give indie game titles the star power and attention that they deserve,” said Stephen Hoskins, founder of Happy Square Productions. “They disconnect the extremely arduous and time consuming tasks of promoting games from developers, delivering well-coordinated strategies designed to showcase the joyful greatness of indie games. The gamer community is in for a jolt of indie gaming goodness thanks to Rising Star Games.”
“Innovative, unique game experiences like The Land of Eyas are a great example why indie games are so special”, said Martin Defries, managing director of Rising Star Games. “When players experience The Land of Eyas they’ll find a unique platforming treasure that will challenge in new, exciting ways while captivating gamers with its delightful art style and story.”
In The Land of Eyas, gamers take on the role Eyas, a little boy wearing an oddly-styled cat outfit, who is caught in a world split between two opposing gravities. To find his way Home, Eyas has to learn how to navigate the strangely beautiful world using the opposing gravitational forces and the objects he interacts with along the way. 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 will be able to use the additional momentum to sling-shot to new heights and access new areas.
Developed by the indie developer Happy Square Productions, The Land of Eyas will be available this Summer on Steam and selected digital retailers. For more information, follow Rising Star Games on Twitter and visit the official Rising Star Games website.
