Last year, Rising Star Games revealed a Zelda-like game called Decay of Logos. According to the developer, the title is set in a fantasy world where you coexist with kings, knights, wizards, ancient species, and other mythical creatures. You journey through an ancient kingdom ruled by a warring king and have to avenge loved ones. After your village is ransacked, you're saved by a magical elk and embark on a new quest.
Avenge your family
Explore a war-ravaged world
Immerse yourself in the world of Decay of Logos and unravel its mysteries. Explore old dungeons, battle unforgiving foes, and journey through a vibrant interconnected fantasy realm with your mystical elk companion.
Decay of Logos looks similar to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and has already captivated many gamers. It also has hints of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. As seen from the trailer, the game is a third-person role-playing adventure which focuses on tactical instead of action-focused combat. Just like The Last Guardian, gameplay revolves around the bond with a mysterious elk.
Today, Rising Star announced that Decay of Logos is coming to Xbox One and PC on August 30. It's launching on other platforms a few days early.
Hopefully, the game will be a stellar experience along the lines of the titles it takes inspiration from. The title has definitely improved since I last saw it at PAX East 2017.

That game needs some serious texture work before they should release. It looks like a VR game.
It doesn't look that bad to me, is it just the art style?
Gameplay is much important, the texture pack can come later lol.
Looks interesting, will definitely check this out.
So any bets on whether the Elk dies, or is it just me?
I wouldn't be surprised if the elks are generic and you can plow through them until you find one that fits your color scheme. >.<
