Eon Altar is hitting Steam Early Access in time for PAX Prime 2015. Play with them, with your own
smartphone and you’ll get an exclusive Early Access Eon Altar Pin!
Eon Altar, the mobile-enhanced co-op PC RPG game, is playable at PAX Prime! Players who download the
free Eon Altar Controller app on their iOS or Android device to play with them at thier booth will score an
exclusive Early Access Eon Altar Pin!
Developed by Vancouver independent game studio Flying Helmet Games, Eon Altar leverages modern
technology to bring back the truly social and interpersonal experience of couch co-op gaming. Play
together with friends in this episodic RPG for one to four players where your smartphone is your
controller. Connect your smartphone to a gaming platform and explore a finely-crafted fantasy world with
intense, turn-based combat and unique RPG storytelling.
Eon Altar is launching with Steam Early Access for Episode 1 – The Battle for Tarnum.
“In Eon Altar your smartphone is your controller,” said Edward Douglas, project director of Eon Altar at
Flying Helmet Games. “You control your character, select your attacks, upgrade your powers, manage
your gear, and keep secrets or share your story with others. It’s a whole new way to interact with a
traditional PC-style RPG, and we want to get as much feedback from players on how it plays and feels
before we go into wide release.”
Episode 1 contains over four hours of content, and Flying Helmet Games is hard at work finishing episodes
2 and 3, as well as beginning work on console releases, slated for 2016.
“Eon Altar is a huge undertaking for a independent studio of our size,” said Douglas. “A PC release makes
sense for our first foray into the market, but we truly believe console is the place that couch co-op gaming
with your smartphone will truly flourish.”
You can play a preview of Episode 1 – The Battle for Tarnum as well as a Combat Challenge Arena at PAX
Prime 2015 in Seattle, August 28th to 31st. Come find them at booth #7006 on the sixth floor of the
Washington State Convention Center.
