Children of the Eclipse
is a futuristic top-down shooter from Nutfarm
next year. A new
is now available, offering a look at some "humorous" pre-alpha
gameplay footage (just remember not to look directly into the eclipse). Word is:
"The video reveals a cool feature of merging two player characters into one
powerful mech unit. Take out a variety of dangerously weird enemies, uncover an
epic conspiracy involving immortal cybernetic space travellers while relaxing
between missions, jamming to an unforgettable and varied original soundtrack."
Here are some details on the game:
Children of the Eclipse is a hardcore
1-2 player retro shooter at heart, wrapped in next-gen graphics, set in a unique
far-future utopian sci-fi world teeming with life. The game is set in a
far-future utopia, where all energy sources are renewable and cultures take
pride in finding scientific solutions that benefit everyone, not just
themselves. YouŽll also find plenty of unique humor in this buzzing world - may
it be sentient rocks, mercenary DJs or scientists in mind control suits.
Pilot and Flexbot are two Synthesizers on Planet O-2, where societies are built
on scientific research, not on wealth or the strength of an army. Their job is
to make sure Fringe Zone explorers and researchers keep out of trouble. An
easy-going job takes an unexpected turn when Flexbot goes missing... The pair
embarks on an adventure filled with explosive battles, unforgettable characters
and lots of partying.
