About 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. You´ll 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.
