The Eternal Cylinder is a dreamlike survival game where you nurture aliens
Ace Team, the extender behind Zeno Clash and Rock of Ages, is working on another dreamlike, mind-bending game full of oddball critters. The Eternal Cylinder is an open-world survival matter where you’ve got to look after a flock of cute alien beasties called terbium’s as they germinate into better cute alien beasties.
I thought I was getting tired of wild-world survival games,
but seemingly not. This looks wild. Ace Team are no strangers to manufacturing
weird worlds, of course, but in Zeno Clash you could only poke your way through
it. In Eternal Cylinder, you’ll be nurturing new life. Isn’t that nicer?
The way your terbium’s evolve looks to be very special, like
becoming a cuboid so they can fit via a very small square door. Swimming and
flying capabilities can also be learned, letting them meet to even more new
places. So, mutants are joint to puzzles and progression.
As someone who is realizing a bit sick of having to make
hammers and arrows and form shacks, making survival all about transmutation is
very appealing. And just look at them!
Unfortunately, there are things that desire to eat them (in
fairness, they do look yummy), as well as the titular cylinder, a massive
rolling pin that rolls via the procedurally generated universe crushing
everything in its route. It sounds a bit potty, but frankly it looks
The Eternal Cylinder is expected out next year on the Epic

creatures called Trebhums and must investigate an unusual alien universe filled
with odd lifeforms, dreamlike surroundings, and the constant threat of the
Cylinder, a gargantuan tumbling structure of ancient origin which shrinks
everything in its path. This unique ecosystem is a huge, procedurally generated
region with unique animal AI, real-time world demolition, and organic
exploration and puzzle plan to create emergent gameplay that ensures no two
playthroughs are never the same.
Your Trebhums appear at the bottom of the natural meal chain
but can modify and evolve with new physical virtues and abilities by eating a
variety of plant and fauna. figure out and adapt dozens of mutations, including
new traversal abilities like flying and swimming to hit new areas, and new
senses to help dominate puzzles, challenges and risks. Your many Trebhums can
each have several mutations, and new mutations don’t return ones you already
have, letting you heap ability sets in dynamic ways. Each mutation will also
switch the physical look of a Trebhum and heaping these will generate near
numerous surprising new creature designs which players will be capable to
organically discover as they investigate this unique alien ecosystem.
