Match your wits against the world's most wily and colorful collectors! Intelligence and steady nerves are not the only skills you'll need to outsmart the other bidders.

Reviews:

Computer Gaming World, October 1994

"Auction is a light-hearted strategy exercise whose play is very nearly eclipsed by its multimedia presentation. The program features extensive use of video clips, 3D animated modeling, still photos, digitized voices, and classical and neoclassical music. The game takes place in a hypothetical 21st century in which many of the catastrophes we had fervently hoped would go away have actually happened."

"To participate, you must first choose a character from a multi-racial, international group of strongly motivated and highly successful entrepreneurs. Each character is accompanied by a brief description and a dossier with interviews, newspaper and magazine clippings. As far as game play is concerned, this material becomes more valuable when you wish to stud your computer controlled opponents than when choosing your own character. The sensuous tones of Nuria the narrator guide you through each step of the selection and registration process. She also provides a generous quantity of on-line audio help. Up to four live players may participate in AUCTION, provided they are able to crowd around a single keyboard."

CD-ROM World, September 1994

"Eidolon, the New York-based developer of Millennium Auction, set an ambitious goal for itself when it decided to create a nonviolent game that adults (targeted for the 18 to 55 crowd) would find appealing and want to play repeatedly. This is the company's first attempt at "intellitainment", as it likes to call it.

Millennium Auction presents a non-linear story in which players are art traders in a 3-D rendered environment."

"A game based on buying and selling art must have quality artwork, and Millennium Auction doesn't disappoint. Besides the authentic masterpieces that go on the auction block, the game itself has beautiful, often surprising 3-D graphics and work. (Eidolon has won awards for its 3-D work.)"
