Remember your power
Eidetus is a strategic, team-based B.Y.O.H. (Build Your Own Hero) shooter set in a dystopian sci-fi landscape. Play as a Psypher channeling memories through psychic power while drawing from the deck of abilities you’ve assembled to defeat your opponents.
- To Win - You Must Master
B.Y.O.H.(Build Your Own Hero)
Design a Pyspher that suits your play style, psychic visions, and team's needs. You do you.
Okay, so there is an "I" in Eidetus, but there's also a "U." In order to win, you gotta work together with your Psypher pals. You'll need to cooperate and strategize with each other so you can claim your territory.
Rock out with your deck out. Devise inventive combinations of skills that dovetail effectively in combat. Since Eidetus is esoteric as hell and this game's all about memory, decks are called "reveries" here.
Embrace your inner capitalist and suck up all the resources! All is fair in laissez faire. Understand and utilize the game map and enemy movements to gain control of the assets you need to win.
Flickshot your way to victory. Quick reaction speeds and precision aim will put you ahead of your Psypher peers.
How to Play
Before joining a match, you'll select one of your reveries (decks). Choose wisely, since the reverie you pick will determine which skills are available to you for the entire match (no take-backsies). Upon entering the game, you will randomly be given four skills from your reverie which you may then reshuffle for a potentially better starting set.
As you play, you'll unlock additional skills (upgrade!). These can be used to overwrite a currently equipped skill so you can adapt your play style to synergize with your allies or better combat the opposing team.
Find and collect the strange crystals strewn about the world, increasing your maximum power as a Psypher. As you kick your enemies' butts with mind-lasers and vaporize them with psychic blasts, you can collect their residual energies for your own nefarious purposes.
Health shrines can be found far from the action (you gotta work for ‘em) and only give their blessing after performing the intricate ritual of… standing next to them for 10 seconds. But beware, these relics draw the attention of the local creatures and more simple-minded denizens. These heathens must be removed from the area before you can claim the shrine's valuable restorative effects.
The main objective of Eidetus is to capture the massive sources of energy called WOMPs (named by the locals for the, er, pleasant sound they make upon contact with the ground) before the opposing Psypher team does. Every captured WOMP leading up to the final one improves your chance to win the battle with huge gains in mana and lower capture time.
There are 6 randomized WOMP spawn locations around the battlefield, with the last WOMP landing dead-center in the middle of it all for the no-holds-barred finale, where the winning team takes all!
