Patch Notes for The Wild Eternal (version 1.1.1a)

Hey! We just pushed out The Wild Eternal's first patch!

There are some new treats for you to discover out in the foggy wilderness which may help clear up some things at the end of the game. In addition, we've made a large number of mostly minor bug fixes and adjustments to improve usability, and have worked to polish some aspects of gameplay, graphics, and the UI.

We want your experience in The Wild Eternal to be as good and polished as it possibly can be, so if you have any trouble at all with the game, please don’t hesitate to bring those issues to our attention!

Version 1.1.1a

  • Befriended rats now have a bit more to offer you.
  • Mysterious statues might be more helpful now, instead of just being creepy.
  • Pogostags are now considerably less demanding, and hopefully a bit more fun to be around.
  • A new type of strange stone statue can be found throughout the world. The big ones (pictured above) appear...hungry?
  • Various polish and improvements to characters and lighting.
  • Fog effects have been polished and improved.
  • Adjustments were made to make for a more stable experience.
  • Added support for more unconventional resolutions.
  • Added ability to disable gamepad input via Options/Controls menu.

“The Wild Eternal is simply enchanting. It is unbelievably immersive, incredibly moving, and teaches us all an important lesson in hardship, friendship, and the meanings of life and loss.”

“While at its surface it resembles just another first person, exploratory game with a goal in mind, it's so much more.”

About This Game

Get lost beneath the fog in The Wild Eternal, a reflective first-person exploration game.

It is the early 1600’s.

You are an old woman named Ananta who has fled a life of suffering to search for lasting peace in the Himalayan wild. After a traumatic life, you long to escape the cycle of reincarnation so that you may finally rest in peace.

Your defiance of reincarnation has landed you in a lush, deserted wilderness covered in fog. A fox-shaped demigod agrees to help you escape your fate, but only if you’ll help him in return.

Explore the mystical wilderness together as you embark on a meditative adventure to heal the scars of your past in hopes of avoiding an eternity of suffering.


  • Explore a Mystical and Mysterious World: Explore a vastly beautiful wilderness blanketed in fog as you journey from clear vistas to distant landmarks.
  • Find Your Own Way: While lost in the fog, you'll find ancient artifacts and unlock powerful abilities at hidden shrines.
  • Interact with Strange Wildlife: Encounter wild, and sometimes dangerous creatures, each with distinct personalities. With no means to attack them, tread mindfully on your journey.
  • Uncover a Tangled Narrative: Play as an old woman, Ananta, seeking to escape the cycle of reincarnation and search to uncover the truth about her past.
  • Immerse yourself: Get lost beneath the fog in this 6-9 hour game designed to be a meditative hike riddled with powerful narrative and mystery.
