Hello there :) I just wanted to tell you that Eidolon is incredible. I play videogames for a very long time and enjoy almost every sort of games. But yours is a masterpiece, really. I can't remember being so moved playing a game. I just wanted to support you with words. Thanks for reading and sorry the horrible grammar, english is not my native langage. Keep going.

This means a ton! Thank you!

I have spent almost 45 hours playing Eidolon now, I love it. I grew up in western washington so I really connected with the content. However, I have exausted all the stories. On that note, in future updates it would be awesome if you included more stories about the people that ada ran into that taught her and joss about technology. Why they left, why they came back, anything they might have done once they returned. Just a friendly suggestion. Again I loved the game. Good Job!

I can’t even handle it when I get messages like this [EDIT: because it’s so nice!!]. There will be more content and it may or may not answer your questions.

Just finished gathering all the letters (although I think a glitch may have caused me to miss 1 or 2) and bravo on telling so many stories. I have been playing as if my character is desperately gathering all these things out of a longing for contact and now that there is no more to collect, she is growing quite desperate. It really emphasises how alone your character is once there are no more letters or articles to collect (although of course I wouldn't object to more being added).

you are the best. there will be more content at some point.

Hey I love your blog and I was wondering I want to start to get into game development myself. It's been a dream if mine for as long as I can remember. But I have no idea where to start. Do you think that you could help me or tell me where to go or what to do.

Yes! The beginning and ending of game-making is just making a game! It’s difficult and often frustrating, but remember that everyone else who makes games is also a person, and probably not even that smart, and you can do anything if you want it badly enough. There are a lot of great tools out there, and any of them work—probably check out Gamemaker for 2D, Twine for narrative, Unity for 3D—or even just make an analog game! Print out cards or refashion other boardgames to your whim. If you want to talk in more detail about stuff, message me again and we can have a private conversation. <3

Hey IWG! Just wanted to say I've really be enjoying your game. It's rare to come by a game that's based around pure exploration now-a-days. Your game is a place for me to retreat when I just need to get away from the world for a while. I'd love to see where you guys end up in the future - you definitely have set the bar for the exploration genre. 20/10 game. Will be keeping this quaint little adventure on my laptop for years to come.

*single tear*

Hello, i have recently started playing this game and have found it wonderful. This has been one of the best gaming experiences i have ever had. I was wondering if you were ever going to incorporate multiplayer or co-op. I love this game and would love to experience it with my friends as well. I would love an answer, thank you! :)

Thank you so much! It’s always amazing to hear that people are enjoying their time with the game.

We talked about multiplayer early in the project and decided that Eidolon should always remain a single-player experience. Multiplayer is a lot of work to implement, and it’s our feeling that the lonely silence of the game is a significant part of what makes it what it is.

Any chance on further optimization of the Mac version? Got this for my girlfriend and was disappointed. Would love to play this at more than a few frames per second at lowest settings. Thanks!

Tragic!!! Yes! Sorry! Figuring out Mac is my current day job. Oddly it seems to run ok on older systems. Try opting into the test build, it may help. Let me know at icewatergames(at)gmail(dot)com
