Eidolon is a game about exploring a mysterious landscape and uncovering the stories of the people who lived there once before. It is a game about history, curiosity, interconnectedness, and the slow and inevitable beauty of life.
You will be dropped into the dreary and mystical Western Washington circa 2400 c.e. with a bow, fishing rod, and little to guide your way. Awaiting you is a vast landscape filled with wildlife, edible plants, and the memories of our now-dead culture—stored in artefacts such as journals, sketchbooks, newspapers, zines, brochures, transcripts, and more. You must spend your fleeting moments moving through this place, collecting these memories, and piecing together what happened to these people, both from a historical perspective and from a much more personal one.
Ice Water Games is firmly rooted in the Pacific Northwest, where most of us were born and raised. We are here to provide experiences that are beautiful, interesting, or otherwise valuable.
Ice Water Games was founded by Kevin Maxon in late 2013 to complete the production of Eidolon. Aiding with the development of Eidolon in varying capacities are Adam Murgittroyd, Zoe Vartanian, Michael Bell, Meagan Malone, Jeff Klinicke, Aron Miller, Jacob Leach, Isa Hutchinson, Shadie Hijazi, and a slowly growing group of excellent submissions writers.
