Sold as a cinematic reflection on life after death and fully inspired by a personal story of loss, DE:EXIT – Eternal Matters releases on Xbox, PlayStation and PC. 

Created and developed by the SandBloom Studio team, before being picked up by HandyGames – they previously behind a ton of stuff including the delightful, but tearful, Endling – Extinction is Forever – is DE:EXIT – Eternal Matters. It’s playable right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, as well as on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC today. 

Running a price of some £17.49 and complete with a free trial from the Xbox Store should you prefer to dip before you splash the cash, DE:EXIT – Eternal Matters whisks you off on a journey through the afterlife. A surreal experience, it’s up to you to try and discover your purpose in life, taking teachings from death itself. 

It comes together via a voxel visual look that, frankly, we adore, as the Plane of Memory awaits those looking to uncover all manner of secret. With various characters to befriend and many more foes to take down, DE:EXIT – Eternal Matters promises much, all as you traverse the cold harsh lands in order to take in the warmth of the Nexus – your one last safe haven. 

For many it’ll be the tale that DE:EXIT – Eternal Matters attempts to cover which will be of focus, and it’s that which comes together in a cinematic way, building in puzzles as they take on this journey. But there’s more to it than that and whilst our full review of DE:EXIT – Eternal Matters on Xbox Series X|S is coming, for now the key features you need to focus on include:

  • Surreal Cinematic Experience – DE-EXIT adopts a minimalistic voxel aesthetic to paint a vibrant picture of an afterlife, further enhanced by cinematographic design, motion capture animation and realistic VFX
  • Ponder Death, Loss and Memory – Take on the role of a recently departed soul and experience a story that isn’t afraid to ask questions about loss and what lies beyond our mortal existence
  • Intricate Friends and Foes – Create connections with complex characters experiencing unique stories, navigating diverse motivations. Adventure alongside them or face them in combat as you seek to save the Plane of Memory
  • Interactive storytelling – Seek out pieces of lore, experience thrilling action scenes and stealth and solve puzzles to unravel the shroud of mystery resting on this otherworldly realm

Julien Gatumel Fernandez, Narrative Designer at SandBloom Studios said: “Death is so often depicted negatively in the media, and we wanted to offer a new insight on the matter and to invite players to view death from a perspective that is not explored as often. The development of DE-EXIT – Eternal Matters has been shaped by people from various backgrounds and cultures, and we hope players will see and appreciate this throughout the story. We hope players will love DE-EXIT as much as we loved creating it.”

Tempted? DE-EXIT – Eternal Matters is on the Xbox Store with a £17.99 price tag attached. It’s playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, with full optimisation on the latter new-gen consoles. That store will provide the one hour free trial too. Further, DE-EXIT – Eternal Matters is on PlayStation and PC too. 

Game Description:

Embark on a surrealistic afterlife journey to discover the secrets of the broken and mysterious Plane of Memory in this atmospheric, light adventure with a hint of stealth. Explore a wonderful voxel world with an intense cinematic approach. Dive into this profound experience, meet the Plane’s inhabitants, and save the day! DE-EXIT embraces the clash of minimalistic voxel aesthetic and clean textures on one side and surprises with complex cinematographic features, more realistic VFX, and motion capture animations on the other. You wake up in a new and intriguing, surrealistic world. Where are you? What are you doing here? Why does everything seem so different? Commence a voyage full of questions and broken realms but hopeful people. Of strange, unexpected sights and majestic scenery. Discover what happened to the Plane of Memory and help fix it. Set out on a thrilling journey where puzzles, stealth, platforming, and action work as tools to potentiate cinematography, story, and setting. Death tends to be a taboo subject. DE-EXIT opens the discussion around this intimidating but fascinating topic from a more positive perspective than usual. Remember the dead and enjoy this ode to life.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
