Eclipse Phase Film Option!

Fresh on the heels of EP headed off to press, we have this exciting announcement!


8 July 2009

Nachos Entertainment has acquired the rights to the highly anticipated
role-playing game Eclipse Phase .  Game veterans Rob Boyle and Davidson
Cole are actively developing the feature film script.

Phase is set in the future, but in a time that is closer than we want
to believe.  Earth has been destroyed and humanity stands on the cusp
of a new age where humankind has merged with technology.  This new
transhumanity has colonized Mars and the solar system, though it
remains divided between repressive hypercorp-backed regimes and
techno-anarchist strongholds.  Biotechnology allows humans to repair or
replace their bodies, while artificial intelligence has grown to
staggering levels with cognitive science and nanotechnology, making
uploading the human mind possible.  Transferring the mind digitally
across great distances is now the preferred means of travel. 

What horrors await us in the deep empty chill of space?  What choices will we make in order to survive?

Boyle has been actively working as a game designer, editor, writer,
developer, and art director in the tabletop role-playing game industry
since 1997, contributing to over 60 published products. For 6 years he
served as lead developer for the Shadowrun role-playing game,
culminating in the co-design and creation of the
award-winning Shadowrun, Fourth Edition. He is currently lead developer
for the Eclipse Phase role-playing game, which he co-created with Brian

Cole is developing the boardgame/video game
hybrid, Verminopolis.  Additionally, Cole has worked extensively on
character and story contributions with video game developer Day 1
Studios and role-playing games such as Shadowrun and VOR: The
Maelstrom.  Cole also wrote and directed Design, which was an official
selection of the Sundance Film Festival and the documentary, The 95th:
The Iron Men of Metz.  In addition to the Eclipse Phase script, he is
currently in development on his second feature film, Angels.

Nachos Entertainment (MNE) officially launched in June of 2009 with its
