Eufloria - Very good for what is it.

The game I completely missed out on. It came out in 2009 and hid behind my firewall for the next 2 years. I consider myself to be pretty well informed when it comes to gaming, esp in terms of the indie scene, I've played a large number of indie games, and I've enjoyed the hell out of 1 or 2 of them, while those that I did not enjoy I was able to appreciate, such as flow which was not so much fun as it was interesting, until it was promptly ripped off by SPORE to become a minor piece of a major fuckup. I've always liked the idea of procedurally generated worlds, and while a lot of these games tend to be dynamic, and interesting for a quick glance, they generally tend to age rather poorly, getting boring within a few minutes of having swum, jumped, crawled, spiraled or blasted around in them.

I remember playing Dyson a long time ago which I think in turn spawned Eufloria. The game is visually soothing, but there is little to it beyond colonising circles and attacking others. I recommend checking it out because it is just so hypnotic in motion.

I think the title should be "Very good for what it is". As written it sounds more like a question. ;-)
