The CORE, a private research station, 2352. A celebrity scientist awakens to this fallen utopia and must search for his loved ones - with the help of L, a mysterious companion.

The Mind's Eclipse is a science-fiction visual novel featuring hand-drawn scenes in black and white, and emotional narrative-driven gameplay. Players will uncover the mystery of the Eclipse and its side-narratives by exploring, searching through logs and journals, and piecing together what happened to the CORE whilst searching for Jonathan's family.
