Titled "Watcher in the Dark," Episode 3 of Eon Altar picks up right where Episode 2 left off with your party (you are playing this with a group of friends, right?) in unfamiliar territory searching for a way out. Similar to the previous episodes, this new one includes two chapters within it, the "Paths of Madness" and the "Hall of the Builders," and amounts to about "3 hours of new content." You will need the first two episodes to play, though, so if you're thinking of getting into the game, probably want to go ahead and just pick up that season pass.

Co-Op RPG Eon Altar Hits Early AccessJohn Bardinelli

Even though it's a PC game, Eon Altar requires smartphones to play, even for single player. The official phrase is "a mobile-enhanced cooperative RPG", which sounds like a gimmick until you think about the possibilities. For example, mobile devices can be used for custom button inputs that change depending on the situation. (What's that line from Conker's Bad Fur Day? Context sensitive.) Not only that, but with those bright beautiful screens in players' hands, information other than button layouts can be displayed, providing hints or even secrets to certain players and counting on them to share (or not) with their teammates. It brings a whole new level of cooperation to role playing, and the dev team is excited to explore the possibilities.

Gameplay in Eon Altar is built around combat, NPC interactions, and exploration. Fighting foes is a turn-based tactical affair that puts all five characters' abilities to the test, not to mention your own ability to work with your team. Since each human player has their own smartphone screen/controller, information can be passed to individuals without the group knowing about it. What's that about a secret treasure hidden behind the barrel? Why sure, I'll share that with the group. After I get all the good stuff for myself.

For me, one of the gems of PAX East 2013 was a game located in a tiny booth on the edge of the expo floor. Entitled Eon Altar, developer Flying Helmet Games ambitiously combines a tabletop RPG with a video game for a unique cooperative experience.
