Steam Challenge – Eufloria

This is part of my Steam Challenge Series (the full list is here).

Time played: 16 hours

Eufloria is a lovely little RTS. Minimalist, ambient, fairly relaxing as RTS games go, it recently received a huge upgrade that took it from ~190MB to ~1.6GB. I have no idea what was added, but the HD version was free since I had the game already, and I can only assume that the changes brought about a better experience, because I have no complaints about the gameplay at all.

The music and sound effects are soothing, the visuals are calming, and the mechanics are easy to learn and quite intuitive. I found the campaign to be fairly straightforward, while still requiring some level of strategic skill to finish. The game is very simple, yet managed to retain a satisfactory amount of depth to keep me engaged.

Unlike most other RTS games, I think Eufloria is child-friendly, too. All in all, I’m really happy with this humble bundle acquisition.
