The Wild Eternal gives you the opportunity to reflect on reincarnation with a first person exploration based title that explores the early 1600’s. Out in the wilderness players will meet with a fox like demigod who opts to help you in your journey provided you assist him.
Your body for the experience ahead is that of an older woman named Ananta who after a life of suffering has ventured deep into the Himalayan wild in an attempt to find peace. After this life of suffering has Ananta wanting to escape the cycle of reincarnation for every to ensure you can forever rest in peace from the world.
Your defiance of following your own role in reincarnation has led players to a lush wilderness that has been deserted and overcome with fog, within this realm you will adventure forward to heal yourself with the assistant of the demigod and escape the cycle of suffering you have endured.
Along the way players will find ancient shrines and powers long hidden by the fog to assist with the journey ahead. Starting as a slow old women players also can’t jump and have limited vision but the above shrines will slowly give you back these abilities which help you overcome obstacles that block your way.
Additionally players will also encounter a number of strange creatures from the wild with their own personalities. When all is said and down the adventure can take as little as 5 hours but diligent travellers can extend this to double digits. With the limited replay value on offer from The Wild Eternal the price tag is slightly on the high side.
Everything is wrapped up beautifully in a unique aesthetic that feels out of a cartoon, perhaps even a children’s story book in some instances.
