Description

Get lost beneath the fog as you’re transported to the mystical wilderness in this mindful and reflective first-person adventure game. Embark on a meaningful journey as an old woman, Ananta, seeking to escape the cycle of reincarnation. Joined by a fox as your companion, together you’ll search to reconcile your traumatic pasts with your present fates. Navigating between two distinct spaces above and below the fog, interact with critters in the wild, find shrines with blessings to unlock new abilities, and search for landmarks along the way. A meditative hike in videogame form, you’ll find yourself reflecting on your past while challenging your personal beliefs and values.

History

Designed with soul and purpose, The Wild Eternal aims to create a sense of wanderlust while encouraging players to not only form a relationship with Ananta and her story, but with the meditative and foggy environment itself. As players search for answers beneath the fog and delve into a deep and intriguing narrative, they will have to be highly perceptive and rely on their instincts, unsure of what lies ahead. Asking important questions about the meaning of life and death, players will be tasked with evaluating their beliefs as they wander the wilderness in search of answers.
