About the StoryYou 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
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.
