Find love amidst the apocalypse in dating-action title Eternights

First look at debut title from Studio Sai.

Hi everyone, I’m Jae Yoo, founder of Studio Sai. We are a small, fully remote, independent studio with developers working from several different countries. After working so hard over the past two years on our debut game, it is very surreal to me to finally be able to reveal Eternights to the world!

So, what is Eternights?

Eternights is a dating-action game where you try to make the most out of life during the apocalypse.  So you scavenge for supplies, explore dungeons… and go on dates. Please watch the below trailer to get a flavor of what to expect in our game, coming to PS4 and PS5 early next year, and you can get a sneak peak in our brand-new trailer below.

There’s so much to look forward to in Eternights so here’s a taster of what to expect in our game: 

Face the infected

One day, something, or someone, has turned humans into dangerous monsters. All that interests them now is violence and power. They are what stand between you, a cure, and the world you want. 

Date survivors

Some of you might be curious about what the dating part of a “dating action game” is. Dating is… well… dating. When you’re not exploring dungeons, you can choose to spend time growing closer to a cast of five quirky and loveable characters. As you explore their stories and grow closer to them, you also unlock unique skills and spells you can use in battle. 

Manage your calendar

There are deadlines for you to beat the dungeons and it is important for you to manage your time wisely. Will you grow closer to your confidant in order to deepen your relationship and unlock new skills? Will you scavenge the wasteland for supplies? Will you grow stronger by training with your companions? Or will you ignore all of that and go to the dungeon the first chance you get?  It’s up to you, but remember, the clock is ticking. 

Explore Dungeons

The dungeons you will explore are filled with mystery and danger. As the deadline looms, you will have to quickly overcome traps, puzzles, and dancing minigames to make it through in time.  Luckily, you have your confidants by your side to help you when things get scary.

Animated cutscenes

With Eternights we want you to immerse yourself and truly connect with the characters you are spending time with. We’ve crafted several fully 2D animated cutscenes that change depending on who you decide to date. 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this first look at our debut game. As a storyteller, I’ve always wanted to mix a love story with adrenaline-driven action. I wanted players to have a strong, personal reason to drive them forward in combat encounters and to feel they were fighting for more than just their own survival – they were fighting for those they love. 

Eternights will launch on PS5 and PS4 early next year. We can’t wait to show you more of the game, so stay tuned for more updates between now and launch.

  • Will hand holding utilize the adaptive triggers?

  • This game looks interesting, and I can’t wait to play it.

  • BloomingShadow5

    Extremely excited from just this first trailer.

  • A day one purchase for my friends and I. I wonder if dating aspects will cover a range of gamer preferences. Hopefully people don’t get upset if it doesn’t have Otome and Yaoi elements, I know some friends that are like that and it irks me.

    Overall pretty cool though, during the trailer I was like is this a ATLUS or Bandai game? Which speaks to the level of quality I am seeing in this game. Please make it physical I want it.

    • I also thought this was an Atlus game when I first saw the trailer too. I’ve been craving Persona since I platinumed Royal so this might help with that for a while

    • According to the one of the artists on twitter you can date the male confidants as well.

  • Welp I’m very curious for sure. I do love dating sims.

  • alice_of_hearts

    What gender is the main character? Is there only a male option? Any plans for adding a female main character?

  • No idea about the trailer since it’s broken on mobile. I’m not scrolling by months just to change years lol.

    • It’s not very obvious visually, but if you press on the year, a drop down will appear to select a year. You don’t need to scroll through each month on the calendar.

  • I’ve never experienced what it feels like to engage in any dating-action game and would love to try this out. As far as watching shows and movies alike this genre of games, I’m familiar with the atmosphere and nature of these epic adventures and seeking to hatch from my gamer shell 😉.
