GOOD SHEPHERD ENTERTAINMENT TO PUBLISH ACE TEAM’S OPEN-WORLD SURVIVAL ADVENTURE GAMETHE ETERNAL CYLINDER

Explore, evolve and escape hot fiery rolling extinction on consoles and PC in 2020


Good Shepherd Entertainment (John Wick Hex) and indie developer Ace Team (Zeno Clash, Rock of Ages) have announced a new publishing partnership for The Eternal Cylinder. This ambitious take on open-world survival adventure games is expected to release in 2020 on gaming consoles and will be available for Windows PC exclusively via the Epic Games store at launch.

In The Eternal Cylinder, players control a herd of adorable creatures called Trebhums and must explore a strange alien world filled with exotic lifeforms, surreal environments, and the constant threat of the Cylinder, a gargantuan rolling structure of ancient origin which crushes everything in its path. This unique ecosystem is a massive, procedurally generated land with unique animal AI, real-time world destruction, and organic exploration and puzzle design to create emergent gameplay that ensures no two playthroughs are ever the same.

Your Trebhums begin at the bottom of the natural food chain but can mutate and evolve with new physical attributes and abilities by eating a variety of flora and fauna. Discover and adapt dozens of mutations, including new traversal skills like flying and swimming to reach new areas, and new senses to help overcome puzzles, challenges and dangers. Your many Trebhums can each have different mutations, and new mutations don’t replace ones you already have, letting you stack ability sets in dynamic ways. Each mutation will also change the physical look of a Trebhum and stacking these will generate near countless surprising new creature designs which players will be able to organically discover as they explore this unique alien ecosystem.

I didn't realize who the developers were until after I watched the trailer. I just searched my Steam library to see if I could remember the name of the game it reminded me of visually... and it was Zeno Clash. I come back here to say just that, and notice what else they made! Weirdly, it reminds me of Spore as well.

Looks nice, looking forward to playing it in 2021
Yep, love ACE Team's work and if it was them and not the publisher, I wouldnt begrudge them making that deal (though they were one the few Source engine games back in the day if i recall correctly; with Zeno Clash.) but i will wait for non-EGS release.

Glad something finally came of walking elephant snout footage/prototype from years ago

Nice that this still exists. Too bad for the store choice.
If this ever happens to ZC3 then I riot.

I'm worried you're right too, I just don't want to believe it. Especially since this looks like more of their bizarre fun
i'm just salty we'll have to wait additional 12 months for it (so 2021)
