    This is great! The music and mood seriously reminds me of the Mother games.

    Absolutely brilliant concept! I just wish you'd have taken it even further, making the game more open-ended.
    An amazing starting point anyway! Congratulations!!

    firstly, high five for rpg maker 2003 entries! only you completely blew mine out of the water. i love your entry. everything sounds and looks and feels like it was made in the bbc radiophonic workshop in the 60's, with the dialogue of the Mother games. i adore it. i would love to know how you made some of the music! the snake planet in particular is a favourite of mine. but yes, this game is beautiful and lovely and i really enjoyed it!

    Apr 23, 2012 @ 8:32pm

    great game man :) its an object - but i dont need it ;p

    Rather interesting. I liked searching around for the right things to combine and figuring out what shapes were made of. I felt like it stopped just as the mechanics were really getting used, and I was hoping for some really wonky images to replicate.

    Still, moody and intriguing game overall.

    Smooth graphics and really clever gameplay.

    I liked the symbolism of the ending ;) And the music/SFX add a great atmosphere to the story.

    The scope of this thing is so daunting! Cool setting and music, but I'd forget the object the second I left the room. I have a bad memory :)

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 8:37am

    Keep having problems trying to download it :(

    CherryNukeCola > I don't understand where the problem comes, the link works for me... I uploaded the game on mediafire, maybe it'll be better :

    Different planets gave a few laughs :)
    The "puzzles" would have been pretty good if they had been more open ended, but I guess that is too much for this many objects and this little time... ah well D

    Totally captivating. Nice work guys.

    Cool - really loved the retro sound effects, probably the most interesting soundscape of any game I've played so far. Puzzle elements were interesting too - wish there were more of them to piece together.

    Great game :D The graphics were cool and retro. The audio was cool at first, but became a bit annyoing after a while. But still, good job!

    In the menu screen I can't start the game.
    Arrow keys, space and return doesn't do anything. :(

    That was pretty sweet. :) Didn't have any problems finishing the game. Seemed fairly logical(!), fun dialogue and I actually liked the art a lot. I think the color fusion thing was the only puzzley thing I didn't quite follow (the green cross with the little circle on top for the ghost planet). I'm pretty sure I picked the wrong color combos for that, but it still accepted it.

    I liked the concept. It works fine in Wine (on Linux) But I didn't understand the ending (as to why you need/want to create this new planet or just exactly what happened to the old one).

    Too bad it's a jam, if it was a competition it would probably win the "mood" category. I love the earthbound style, sounds are the best I've seen in a LD game. Unfortunately I didn't get the ending. The graphics style is really innovative and dialogues are beautiful and very fitting to the mood. Congratulations!

    I thought this was a very interesting game, shows real promise and have interesting unusual graphics! :) well done

    May 2, 2012 @ 8:25pm

    Lovely atmosphere because of the interesting graphics and sound ^^ this feels like a very complete entry :3
    Pity the gameplay wasn't too interesting :/ but I guess it was more about the story anyway ;)

    Love the attention to details. The game is quite polished. Loved the creepy/lonely mood. One of the few games I played to the end. Well done!

    I couldn't play this game on Windows 7 64bit PC. When I open it, it goes full screen and shows the title screen with the dragon. The whole screen then goes completely black. Esc does nothing so I have to use Ctrl+Alt+Del to close program.

    Have tried restarting, running it in Windows XP compatability mode and as administrator. Also, tried running it with 'Disable Desktop Composition' ticked on the compatability tab in Windows 7.

    I checked the Windows error log and found the following error:

    Really impressive! I especially liked the use of sound on the ship.

    I'm glad I still see weird games like this... You could have added a bit more to the space exploration part

    I played it on my Windows Vista PC and it worked fine.

    This game had an incredible atmosphere. I loved the feel of it, especially the eerie music. The story was cool too. Great work.

    This game is pretty interesting. The graphics were really simple, but they worked well. The audio was great at setting the mood.

    Totally diggin' the ambient audio in here... WOW. This game put me in a very different mood, and I DIG IT!

    May 15, 2012 @ 8:12pm

    This game was so weird, but I liked it. I'm not sure what I just experienced, but it had a childlike logic about it that gave it the mood of something invented by a 4 year old's imagination, that I found very appealing. Great job!
