In The Mind’s Eclipse, you’ll experience an interactive sci-fi narrative that’s emotionally driven. The game is presented in black-and-white, but its characters are morally gray. (I love that…)

The year is 2352. The CORE is a private research station. You are celebrity scientist Jonathan Campbell, who awakens to a fallen utopia.

Your loved ones are here — somewhere. You hope. You search for them, joined by a mysterious companion known only as L.

You’ll be reading quite a few logs and journals as you go about piecing together the events leading to the state of affairs in which you find yourself. What happened to the CORE and the utopia? What is the Eclipse? Where is your family?

And one more thing: Beware COSy.

The Mind’s Eclipse takes a serious look at the personal and human consequences of technology and immortality, and tries to examine a family that is caught in a web of uncertainty with regard to this new frontier of existence,” explains founder Donald Campbell. “In a universe where we could live forever, what does this mean for the human? For a family? For a father? For a daughter?”

The Mind’s Eclipse will be released on January 25, 2018 for Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam and Links to playable demos for all three platforms appear on these pages as well.

This might bear repeating…

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
