Hot Laser Death, lustrous pennies, Scandinavia is basically outer space ok

Quinns: Perhaps you’re aware of a little game called ECLIPSE? It erupted out of Finland two years ago like some dark alien life-form, intent on devouring the world’s leisure time.

I am proud to say that I have done battle with this alien (is this analogy working?) and my review has JUST THIS MOMENT gone live on Eurogamer. It starts like this:

“This game was 2012’s biggest release, and it couldn’t be more deserved. Eclipse’s masterstroke was in taking a genre with a portentous appeal – claiming star systems, climbing hand over hand up a grandiose tech tree, engaging in HOT LASER DEATH – and compressing it down into just two hours using the same dark Scandinavian genius that brought us flatpacked Ikea furniture.”

…and it continues, using words.

In all seriousness, a lot of people called Eclipse 2012’s single biggest release. If you’re curious, you should absolutely go and have a little read. And then maybe have a little buy. Alright, a big buy.

But let me tell you- this one is absolutely worth it. Any of you guys tried the expansion?
