    Tags: Lost Eidolons; Ocean Drive Studio

    A demo of Lost Eidolons, the upcoming tactical RPG from Korean developer Ocean Drive Studio, was available during Steam Next Fest back in June. It turns out that was the game's alpha build and now it's entering beta. The first beta build has been released to Kickstarter backers, along with anybody who signed up for the "Benerio Grand Company" beta tester group, and will be available until October 6th. Unlike the demo the beta is under NDA, so there will be no gameplay videos on YouTube, but Ocean Drive have released 14 minutes of spliced footage that should give you an idea of what the game is like now.


    Full patch notes for the Lost Eidolons beta release are available here. If you weren't a backer and would like to participate in future beta tests, the Benerio Grand Company seems like it's still accepting sign-ups.

    Wow, it must took huge effort to make something unappealing like this. Please someone tell Kim Jong-un to nuke it from orbit.

    It looks bland. I might be interested if they jam enough skills/spells and character customization into it. The combat on its own doesn't look really engaging, despite the relatively high fidelity graphics. The animations looked sort of cool the first 3 times or so I saw them, after that they became grating (as did the music btw). I get sort of the impression that the developer focused on the wrong things here.

    On the other hand, I do like tactical RPG's and so I do hope that this won't be utter garbage.

    I put this on my Steam wishlist when I first heard of it. Played the demo a few months back during that Steam event, then clicked "Ignore".

    This game looks more bland than sucking a wooden popsicle stick for half an hour.
