Gameplay


Goal

Look to the stars is a HUD-less and dialog-less experience of hopping around on tiny planets and orbiting them. Creatures are found on some and follow the player, talking to them performs actions in a simulation and resource-management game. They also hold resources thereby becoming both the player's inventory and an action-selection mechanism. Planets are developed as their morale is managed.

The object of the game is to fully improve each of the inhabited planets while keeping morale of the creatures up through thoughtful resource management.

Controls

Mouse :
  • LMB (hold) : apply force in the direction the player is looking
  • RMB : interact with planets, creatures or resources

Note: the developer recommends playing in a swivel chair while holding the mouse in the air (like a remote).
