Eufloria is an ambient game of space exploration and conquest that employs surprising themes of plant growth and bio mechanical evolution. The game allows the player to explore a beautifully realized universe rendered in a style that is both unique and compelling. Eufloria’s aesthetics are reminiscent of children’s books like “the little prince” and the gameplay is supported by an original ambient soundtrack by Brian Grainger. Gameplay revolves around conquering asteroids in space and using their resources to literally grow and nurture new semi-organic plants and creatures to do the player’s bidding. The player is pitched against several teams of AI opponents that all vie for the same resources and can offer fierce opposition.
Being one who prefers FTS & retro games over other game types (RTS, MMO, RPG), I really enjoy playing Eufloria ...
* elegant yet detailed, simple graphics (zoom in & out all the way)
* simple game play mechanics like a casual game
* a wonderful soundtrack
* lacks graphic RTS violence so my kids can watch (or play)
* relaxing to watch & play (usually ;-) the organic color schemes help too.
I can't really say enough good things about this game. Do you yourself a favor. Try out the demo. Either you'll love it (like most folks) or go 'meh'. The only thing I wish is that it came in a Linux (and Mac) flavors ... and maybe a bypass helper. This game is perfect.
I played it a lot. I bought it long time ago, and used it on my Windows PC and a portable version on my Workplace PC XDD
I think it's one of the best games in years, but I'm using Linux (Debian) and cannot play it since it doen's work well on wine, and it's really slow on VirtualBox.
It need's a port.
Absolutely excellent. I played this mainly watching a livestream due to the apparently slow pace. It wasn´t a good idea for my watching and for the most part there is far enough happening to keep you occupied. The gameplay is suprisingly hooking, far better than it seems on trailers. I have to note that some later levels are impossible, to the best of my knowledge, on the more dynamic/faster AI which is the default. That aside there isn´t much to complain about.
