Tugging at the threads of fate.

<span class="bold">EITR</span>, a combat-intensive tale woven within the intriguing tapestry of Norse mythology, is coming soon, DRM-free, to GOG.com.

When Loki the trickster god tampered with your Shield Maiden's fate, he forever upset the balance maintained by the great tree Yggdrasil. Study your opponents' moves, strike with cunning and vigor, and discover the destiny bestowed upon you. EITR's innovative experience system lets you choose between the safety of permanent upgrades or the gamble of powerful ones that disappear upon death, like tears in rain.

Watch the trailer.

garrus74: I'm not against pixel art per se, but geez, it's 2017. That's a bit lazy of devs I think, if you don't have money, why not go hand-drawn higher-res or at least do better pixel art - Metal Mutant came out in 1991 and graphics there look better than this.
ppl need this cs its Pixel art..if u dont like pixels then dont bother playing it..its not about the money
its ART
Wow, the introduction is very well written too. I didn't even previously know that you could obtain upgrades that would eternally perish upon your demise, which is one of the most innovative settings I've ever encountered. I subscribed to the game on Steam, but now that GOG has it, then it is a sure purchase from GOG for me.
What I don't get about these "retro-looking" pixel-art games, is that they in fact look nothing like the old games of the 80s and 90s they're supposedly imitating. There are plenty of modern animations, filters, shades and effects that were simply unknown or impossible then. In fact, I don't think any of these games could be run acceptably in a ten-year-old PC, even less in a 25-year-old 386. So, no problem with their art and aesthetic choices, just stop using the "retro" tag for games that do not look retro at all, just because the developers opted for stylized pixelated sprite-like art. In fact, real old games of the pixel age *tried hard* not to look too pixelated!

THANK YOU. There are some guys here who think those devs back then WANTED to have low resolution.

some people still enjoy the look and feel of pixel art. i personally think this one's style looks charming and beautiful. just a matter of taste, i think.

It seems to be a lost cause to get said folks to understand that. I have to wonder how many of them have actually played and enjoyed vintage games now, let alone when they were actually out.
