We're using the classic Eclipse Phase cover art, but in a different style so you get a closer look at our in-peril agent. Eclipse Phase: After the Fall is on track for an electronic release in January! In a world of transhuman survival and horror, technology allows the re-shaping of bodies and minds, but also creates opportunities for oppression and puts the capability for mass destruction in the hands of everyone. Other threats lurk in the devastated habitats of the Fall, dangers both familiar and alien.
