About the Story

You are heading back to your ship, your navvisor blinking hard data at you as you look around planetside -- mineral deposits, heat signatures, distant planets -- when you decide, for a moment, to turn it all off, and pause to look up instead at the glittering expanse of starry sky above.

It's disconcerting, all of this: the surface, the stars, and the vast spaces between. But out there, a speck in the sky, is your objective: the center of the galaxy.

(A Twine game about space exploration. Estimated playtime around 50 minutes.)

A great mid-sized Twine space exploration/trading game, November 16, 2017

I beta-tested this game, and I deeply enjoyed it.

It's a twine game with some really nice use of color and a cool title screen.

You venture from world to world, doing some grinding of resources, and buying different equipment.

Other parts of the game include more room-to-room travel and taking and using items. There are story interludes, and so on.

It was a little shorter than I hoped for, but I'm still giving it 5 stars.
