UPDATE #2: Eclipse will be available for purchase on 16th September, 2016 on Steam and Google Play. iOS version will ba available about a week later as an update.

UPDATE: The game's store page is currently available on Steam, so instead of clicking the Greelight link you can follow this one to access it directly. It's currently only possible to add the game to your wishlists, which I strongly advice you to do, because this will automatically notify you once the game is live:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/522030

We started our Greenlight campaign today and really could use some upvotes New version has a totally rebuild multi-player, with cross-platform play and other awesomenesses. If you'd like to help us get it through GL, please vote here:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=740498...

For more info, you can always visit our website:

http://www.bigdaddyscreations.com/1004/eclipse-coming-to-pc-...


EDIT: It looks like you can't vote with an account you just created, it (as people say, I haven't verified it myself) has to have a purchase made for at least $5.

Excellent! Have you also looked at porting it to a Windows 10 app, and making it available in the Windows store?

We're focused only on Steam now - this gets us two platforms at once (PC and Mac) and a lot more exposure than Windows Store. So Steam, App Store and Google Play is all that is planned at the moment (it's still a lot for a two-people team

With a Windows UWP app you could hit Windows tablets and Xbox One. What is this developed in? Unity? Microsoft offers various tools to port programs to UWP, so it still might be worth checking out.

(And the footage in the trailer looks amazing, especially for a two-person team!)

I will check it out then We used Adobe AIR, so I'm not really sure if what you're talking about is possible with the app.

And thanks, we're quite happy with the video as well

Steam's a ridiculously bigger/better market than Windows Store. Don't side track 'em!

Is the plan just the base game, or are expansions planned on being included?

With the upcoming premiere it's the base game only, but expansions are planned for the future.

Awesome news! I assume the related expansion development will then be available for current iOS platforms?

Will the expansions be for PC and Mac only, or will there be an update to the iPad version as well? And thanks for the quick reply!

Just to make things clear - we're going to update the iPad version as well, so it'll get new multi-player and (in the future) expansions.

A PC version? Finally!! Just voted for it on Steam.

Don't worry about the MS store, no one uses it, Steam is what you need to support.

Besides, I'd be pissed if you made this Win10 only. Not to mention almost no one would buy it.

That's great news! There's absolutely no reason to make any game Win10 only. It's basically MS's attempt to push upgrading and eventually to move people to their store.

On the other hand, now we know one guy who uses the Windows App Store! It's like spotting a three-legged unicorn driving a jet ski.

I would instabuy ...

... the linux version. whistle


android would maybe make me do it too. It's the only 2 platforms I use atm.

now, don't take this as "sharky" but is it really that difficult to program a linux supported program like this one? I only know basics of programming so I might be completely off here. kiss

We're using Adobe AIR and they don't support Linux, that's why there's no (and won't be probably) Linux version.

As for the Android one, it's planned to be released along the Steam version (on Google Play), so you're still going to be able to play it

Yes.

"The Banner Saga" guys used Adobe AIR to develop their two games, and put out a linux port, but it took a ton of effort from their tech team.

It's actually not that bad and far less buggy than Unity. And faster as well. I'd love it if they added support for more platforms, but they probably have like 99% of the market I'm interested in covered, so not much to complain about.
