Eternal Exodus is a story-driven monster-catching RPG set in the afterlife, with unique mechanics like crafting and fusion.

The game will launch in 2022 on Steam, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One with 15-20 hours of main story content, plus several hours of sidequests.


Development started in 2019. By that summer, Josh released a tech demo with placeholder art.

In 2020, the game underwent many stylistic changes. Josh hired a contract artist (Makorie) to redraw the art in a new style, breathing a breath of new life into it. Many other aspects of the game were reworked and polished, rendering it nearly unrecognizable from its crude roots.

In September 2021, with the game over halfway complete, Josh launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund additional features and translation into more languages beyond the existing English and Japanese.


  • Capture demons and fuse them into new species
  • Craft weapons, armor, and potions for your party
  • Studying a language? Play in two languages at once
  • Fully original soundtrack inspired by composers like Nobuo Uematsu and Yasunori Mitsuda
  • Massive 16-bit world map to explore
  • 15-20 hours of main gameplay + several hours of content-heavy, rewarding sidequests
  • Minigames galore
