Set in a derelict space colony, 'The Mind's Eclipse' is a fantastic indie game that explores themes of grief and loss. The idea of an empty space colony may not seem revolutionary, but thanks to superb storytelling, striking visuals and thoughtful themes, The Mind's Eclipse is an amazing game that plays out more like an interactive novel. Developed by The Mind's Eclipse LLC, this first offering is an impressive release that speaks to the shift in gaming to thoughtful storytelling over egregious action.
The Mind's Eclipse places players on a true adventure as they solve puzzles and try to piece together the story behind the empty space station. The fate of the crew and story to the disaster is told through log entries found by the player. Ultimately, the journey experienced by the player is a memorable exploration of grief and loss. The ending is not uplifting, nor is it long, but it is a captivating experience supported by fantastic artwork and haunting ambiance.
