Pixpil is the developer and Chucklefish is the publisher on the just announced game, Eastward. If Chucklefish sounds familiar, it's probably because they're the studio that developed games like Starbound and published games like Risk of Rain and Stardew Valley, to name a few. If Pixpil doesn't sound familiar, it's probably because they are a small studio based out of Shanghai and Eastward is their first game.

Chucklefish provided a good bit of information today on Eastbound that includes a blog entry detailing some of the game's story and gameplay elements, the first screenshots, and a reveal trailer.

The game blends together 3D lighting and pixel-style artwork. The game's development began back in 2015 when Pixpil was just a three member team.
