Eminent Domain: Microcosm (2014) - Accessibility Teardown – Meeple Like Us
If it were a game with different theme I think Eminent Domain: Microcosm would probably be worth somewhat more than the miserly two and a half stars we gave it. That rathough though feels a good deal more appropriate when you consider how few stars it itself puts in the cosmos it proclaims to give us. Space exploration is too grand an endeavour to fit in a microgame. The infinity of the black should be respected, and Microcosm doesn’t do that. It’s a shame really – there are ideas in there that I would have loved to have seen developed and explored with something more appropriate for the clever intermeshing of mechanisms it gives us.
