The Of Love and Eternity demo for Windows from developer Acornbringer gives us a first taste of this game, which is set in a medieval afterlife. You control an undead knight who’s looking for the soul of his beloved, who was brutally murdered just before he was.
There are hints that this game may have been influenced to some extent by Dark Souls, but we simply haven’t seen enough to make a comparison yet. You may have guessed already, but this game probably isn’t going to be for the faint-hearted, much like The Medium.
How do I install Of Love and Eternity?
Visit the Filehippo listing for the game and follow the download link. When the download has finished, follow the on-screen steps for unzipping the program files. Once File Explorer opens, showing the unzipped files, double click on the application to run the game.
What’s the game about?
Although the opening cutscene provides background to the story, this is merely a starting point. Because this is a first look, or ‘alpha’ demo, the developer hasn’t revealed too much about the full game yet. However, it’s already extremely atmospheric, thanks to the fitting soundtrack and graphical style.
How do you play Of Love and Eternity?
You can choose to play either with a gamepad or with your keyboard and mouse.
You move around using the keyboard. The mouse is used to rotate the camera, allowing you to check around you for incoming enemies or for signs of items to collect. The left mouse button is used to select options from the game menu.
How do I uninstall it?
The easiest way is to find where the program files have been saved and delete them. Don’t forget that to get rid of them completely, you need to empty your Recycle Bin.
Game of passion
Acornbringer has said on their webpage that they intend to release the game in ten parts and that they have started work on subsequent episodes. The purpose of this demo is to receive information that will guide the development of the game. It’s clear that this is a work of passion for them.
Based on what’s available to date, Of Love and Eternity looks extremely promising. For an early demo, the movement is well done and the environment surrounding the main character is nicely executed.
There doesn’t appear to be much action yet. However, action doesn't seem to have been the developer’s intent at this stage, They’ve stated that it’s meant as a sample of the game’s systems, not the gameplay itself.
At this point, we’re getting the feeling that Of Love and Eternity will develop into an excellent horror game full of mysteries.
