Game News Into the Eternal ascends to Early Access

Into the Eternal has been released for Early Access on Steam. What's the deal with it? Most of the game is played in third person, allowing you to explore every little nook and crranny. However, when you enter combat, it switches to a 2D side scroller. I don't think I've seen that before. Anyway, some bits:

The Gods of Into the Eternal are capable of creating worlds and setting events in motion. Once they ascend from that world they can no longer control it, and must trust that man will do right by their creation. After many worlds fell into ruin due to man's passion for war, the gods came up with a solution. They created a monster called the Great Exiler, which would rise from the ocean every 900 years - and if man didn't work together to destroy it, then the huge beast would destroy everything. Man would have to start over.

As the game opens, the monster has once again risen from the ocean, and you must take up arms against it.​

Well, at least some people are trying something new. I'm not much on Metroidvania combat, though.

It looked like one combat part wasn't side-scrolling or was smacking those bugs just resource collection?

What an odd design choice. Wonder what the rationale behind it is.

Shitty design decision IMO. I would have probably made it a sidescroller fully. Exploration looks really bland and like a cheap Zelda ripoff.

Looks more like third-person free roaming in the overworld and 2D action platforming in the dungeons. Evoland 2 already did something similar a few years ago (for some of its dungeons, at least).
