Eidolon

the peaceful post-apocalypse
Eidolon is a game about exploring a mysterious landscape and uncovering the stories of the people who lived there once before. It's a game about history, curiosity, interconnectedness, and the slow and inevitable beauty of life. 

You find yourself in the dreary and mystical Western Washington circa 2400 c.e. with 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, blogs, and more. Collect these memories and piece together what happened to these people.
