In their announcement post, Extremely Ok say they’ve been debating how much of Earthblade to share during development. They’ve just shared the name, poster, and musical teaser, but we’ll be waiting a while to hear more than that, they say. “An air of mystery lends itself particularly well to this project, so we’ve opted to save it all up for a big reveal that will hopefully blow your socks off.”
Celeste and TowerFall developers Extremely Ok Games have announced their next game. Sort of, anyway. They’ve announced its name and given a “vibe reveal” in the form of a poster, logo, and music by Lena Raine. If I had to describe the vibe, I’d call it magical and hopeful, but you can do your own vibe check on Earthblade right now.
Extremely Ok also describe just a little of their process leading up to talking about Earthblade. They tried out prototypes for three other games before landing on this one. “Finding the right project is hard! It has to hit that tiny sweet spot between the unknown and the comfort zone,” they say. “It took a while, but we feel like we’ve settled on the right compromise between the two with Earthblade.”
We have plenty of time to speculate because, unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that Earthblade will be coming anytime soon. The press release lists the release window as “20XX,” and Thorson admits that it’ll be a while before we get any more information about the project following this reveal, saying in the post, “Now it sounds optimistic to say out loud that Earthblade could be released within 5 short years of Celeste. The truth is that we don’t know how long it will take, just that it will take as long as it takes (and that it will take a long time).”
TowerFall and Celeste rank among my favorite games of the last generation, so I’m excited to see what Earthblade entails. It’s disappointing that we seemingly won’t hear about the project for a good while, but it’s nice to have some confirmation as to what Extremely Ok Games has up its sleeve, if nothing else. In the meantime, if you’re itching to play something new for the team, earlier this year it released a sequel of sorts to the classic version of Celeste
