You will not regret.

Now if you don't want to play my game (or it's too hard to finish) thanks to BrunoB i have a longplay video of it, that you can see in the link above.
Take off the audio from the pc if your ears are bleeding. Sorry for that :)

Beautiful art and very cool mechanics!

Sadly I can't rate your game. It's a good mechanic and I really liked the audio. Well done.

Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:35am

Neat!

Loved the visuals on this game. Everything was polished and well put together. The music was a nice light-hearted touch as well :) The mechanic is pretty cool and unique, I did find it a little bit hard to control at times - though you are a planet I guess! Maybe some sort of indication of your current direction/velocity might have helped this?

Great job!

Love the music and although I do like the art I couldn't rate it highly. Loved how you interpreted the theme.

ratking says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 9:50am

Very cool, and very playable! The music is great, too.
But those black holes are really nasty. :-(

Very nice! Simple yet creative. Could spend hours on this =)

Sheep says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 10:35am

A bit short, but nice graphics. I love how at the start the dot from the 'i' is actually the player. Music is a bit weird, and doesn't really fit with the game :P

oddgoo says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 10:48am

First of all, great presentation! I loved the title screen being a seamless part of the level. Nice font, nice colours, and fun music (Perhaps a "Click Remover" would have fixed those bits where you hit the mic while singing =P

Definitely enjoyed moving from planet to planet more than trying to get the green life since the controls were a little weak by my taste.

Overall, a nicely executed/polished idea with decent playability =)

That was fun and cute. Very polished too.

This is the most fun I've played so far. Great work!

Simple but so awesome, took me a sec to understand, but now i fly through space like a bird :D

Mechanic and Music are awesome...those red planets!

bms says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 12:28pm

I really like the minimalist design, but a bit too hard for me..

Cake&Code says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 12:40pm

Your humming music is so neat! And I thought the game was fairly addictive. It was definitely a bit rough for me to get the hang of how to be effective at it, but the mechanics were easy to understand.

amidos2006 says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 12:45pm

Nice music and nice game but I think it difficult for me to control :( a bit

steamgirl says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 1:14pm

Lovely game with a nice polished look. It was pretty difficult to play but a good experience nonetheless. I like that you made it very easy to reset to the point you started from. I didn't play beyond the first set of planets though because I couldn't get enough life particles to make it through and it would probably take me hours to get through it.

Pretty unique creation, and I liked your interpretation of the theme!

Tuba says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 1:35pm

Best music of all the games I've played until now :D

Takes a little while to grasp the controls.

whitetigle says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 2:05pm

It was fun but a little difficult to handle at first try :) Well done !

orangepascal says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 2:16pm

the music, really makes this game :) love it!

Apr 23, 2012 @ 2:50pm

good stuff.. i love the music.. but i tried and tried to make it to the TA-DAAA end but im not good enough ;(

Cell says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 3:54pm

Cool.

GREAT

hulahulahest says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 4:20pm

Pretty game. Controls felt sluggish. Cute as the music may be, I kept wanting to turn it off, but found no controls for it.

Suese says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 5:16pm

Gameplay, awesome, fun, new, exciting...

But you win the award for worlds most annoying music.
It was actually WORSE That you put that music in there than it would have been if you had just not. Which is a really bad insult because I've been telling everyone their games need music... That being said, I wished there was an ending, but the idea was innovative and fun.

Thank you for this.

p.s. thanks for being the 1st commenter on my project Tiny Civilization.

A bit too slow to control for my taste but a very pretty and effective presentation. Nice!

angrygeometry says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:02pm

this is cool! very stylised, very slick and nice looking. the music is nice too, if a little repetitive. overall, nice job!

Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:05pm

Do I hear a cat in your music?

dokidoki says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:06pm

Cool gravity mechanic. Frustrating when you accidentally go backwards to the previous planet. :)
I was getting "don't worry jump in the void" kind of message but didn't see anything beyond.

royvanrijn says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:57pm

Very nice! Also, lovely audio, great theme and nice colors.

fanatiko says ...

I love the aesthetic and the music.

chinchang says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:45pm

An innovative gameplay and cool sfx. The subtle game movements were good and light graphics suited the overall game mood. Just found the control lil tight. nice job!

mr_tag says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 8:31pm

nice style! very polished, fun game mechanics and funny audio :)

Gremlin says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 8:42pm

I like the audio. The controls were a bit fiddly, but the mechanic is interesting.

YMM says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 9:11pm

Cool concept and really polished, but I think the controls could use a bit more tweaking to make it easier to fling yourself the direction you intend to.

vigrid says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 10:05pm

Reminds me a bit of Angry Birds Space, but it's a great take on the theme. Very nice "music". Your game is extremely playable :) Congrats!

Pixelulsar says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 10:33pm

It was an interesting concept, but it took me a while to figure out the controls, and still they felt a bit finicky to me. I know it's the way that the game is meant to be played... The music was different... (that's good)

spooks says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 11:39pm

great work!

MadGnomeGamer says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 3:15am

Am i really supposed to collect all those TINY particles??

azurenimbus says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 3:30am

Great job, especially with the mechanics. It plays just right, and when you succeed, you feel you deserved it. Well done!

Apr 24, 2012 @ 4:41am

I like the style! Was a little disappointed to get all the way to the end and then find out I needed more of the little ball things.
Overall, neat little game!

Fireblend says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 4:54am

Really minimalistic and consistent look, and clever mechanics. A winner in my book :D

Danik says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 8:17am

Such a simple idea very well executed!
The presentation is really great.

caribou says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 10:29am

The controls were a bit hard to understand at first but once you get them they actually feel quite natural. The title and description within the level is a nice touch. I liked the clean art and really loved the music :)

Nice mood !

nilstastic says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 10:59am

As i said on irc, a lot of "noooo..waiii..yeees!" - moments. Excellent controls aswell which makes it a nice experience =) Good work!

Catman says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 11:29am

Great work!!! The audio was really funny and the game concept is cool! :)

brus46 says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 11:58am

Sadly i can't ear the sound :( everybody sais its so good. I'll try on another pc soon.
I'm loving the polish graphics and the concept btw :)

Jedi says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 12:38pm

Addictive and original! Simple gameplay at it's finest! Of course, that music is awesome :).

Apr 24, 2012 @ 12:47pm

The music is amazing! Also very interesting gameplay and effective art style

jeffz says ...

one of the best entries I've seen so far, love the vocals, keep up the great work!

Pretty damn fun game with TOP NOTCH bgm :D Loved it!

free_napalm says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 3:55pm

Clear graphic style and a solo barbershop quartet as background music.
And the game is fun, too. Nothing to complain about this one for me :)

Evgis says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 4:23pm

Music is freaking awesome! Also, good gameplay, well done on this one. One of my favourites so far!

karnakgames says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 6:23pm

So simple, yet so amazing!

tcstyle says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 8:31pm

Great idea. The controls really take some practice and probably could be best realized with an anlogue controller stick. The music ist awesome.

Chaos_viper says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 8:43pm

Very nice game!!! Very simple but funny!... And the music is awesome!!!!! :D.. Nice ending! :)

netguy204 says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 9:26pm

Very solid entry.

I loved the music. It was so different and totally appropriate and key to the game mood. It's stuck in my head and, for me, the most memorable part of the game.

The graphics were very clean and appropriate. Nothing was distracting. Everything was on point. The camera work was a very good bit of polish and queue to the player.

It made me laugh. I like that.

Over all, a very good entry.

Sup Dood says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 10:54pm

Fun game! The music is charming, hilarious, and really gives the game a lot of personality. The core mechanic works great and is fun, but collecting particle life is a little too challenging imo. Overall and awesome game =]

Sup Dood says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 10:55pm

Overall an awesome game =]*

marudziik says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 11:25pm

Whoa, so many comments. I feel I've got nothing to add, besides maybe my own words of praise. Sometimes simple mechanics make a very interesting game and that's the case. I actually like the music, and definitely appreciate the effort. :)

Darkfrost says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 11:42pm

First off, awesome! I love the font you've used! The whole graphical style is really nice! Gameplay idea is good too, and pulled off quite well, except it has a few bugs :p

1. You can still control your dot after you've left the orbit. So, if you slow down enough, you can just float wherever you want to go by holding that direction for long enough!
2. The music... it was funny I guess :p Wasn't too bad, but it something a bit more mysterious / sciency sounding could've made the mood a lot better!
3. At the end.. if you keep pressing enter... you keep adding the gravity field! http://i.imgur.com/r8jL6.png I was the most beautiful of all the worlds!

Seriously though, it was pretty awesome! Good job!

naufr4g0 says ...
Apr 24, 2012 @ 11:46pm

Your game is awesome! I really like the game mechanics and the wonderful human voices music! :)

BenW says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 1:45am

Really polished but I found it very difficult to collect the particles.

FaBrito says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 2:59am

Simply WOW! excellent idea and superb implementation of it. Music is just another plus. ;)

Apr 25, 2012 @ 3:51am

Lovely idea, great visually. Difficulty was a bit harsh, but it was still a lot of fun. Nice use of Unity, too!

omaha says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 4:09am

wonderful game.

strega says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 6:47am

Neat gravity game! It felt a little too tedious for me. I couldn't get the hang of aiming the ball properly and would always miss my target >_<

Zillix says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 6:49am

Simple, elegant, cute.

onehandclap says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 11:00am

Quite a lot of fun, congratulations! =)

Apr 25, 2012 @ 6:29pm

Simplistic visuals were really nice and the "music" was hilarious, the gameplay is a bit tough, it's hard to control the ball and the particles you are supposed to collect are so tiny that it's a real chore to try to collect them all. Besides that, this was pretty funny game.

Mesene says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 10:07pm

I like the concept and the graphics, design. Nice job

ilo says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 12:07am

Brilliant art style and music, and a great take on the theme.

jfroco says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 3:49am

Very original, it would be great with touch controls. Nice music.

Mesene says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 1:25pm

can you upload a package with all the prefabs and the scene? thanks :)

AirRider3 says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 2:13pm

Lidfrid, this game is emmense!

The design, the concept, the gameplay, the music, the fx, ... everything!

Raptor85 says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 2:30pm

sadly, can't give a rating as there's no linux version of the webplayer and doesn't work properly under WINE

Raptor85 says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 2:31pm

oops..double post, hit the wrong save button..

Jack says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 7:39pm

this stands above every other game I've played today, except maybe Panopticon. Brilliant game-long tutorial that kept things fresh and a soundtrack that I now want to follow me everywhere. Only problem is that it's too easy to complete the game once you find out that you can control yourself in free space, albeit slowly

chambers says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 8:21pm

One of my favorite games, but needs more balancing, I found it too hard! I like the mechanic, from the screenshots and description I was expecting something like Orbital but it's surprisingly different! Kudos!

castor says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 9:16pm

Tremendous game. Mad cool idea.

PabloAM says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 10:03pm

Nice music, and mechacincs.
The controll could be a bit more precise.

robbiehunt says ...
Apr 27, 2012 @ 3:06am

I like the game - I'm just bad at it, haha. Really great job and it's especially cool having seen your progress in the chatroom.

Good job, dude!

scgrn says ...
Apr 27, 2012 @ 3:30am

I like the mechanic but thought the control was difficult. Overall very nice. The victory song was incredible!

greg20man says ...
Apr 27, 2012 @ 3:44am

I really enjoyed this game my only complaint would be I wish the green circles were a bit larger

LukeRissacher says ...
Apr 27, 2012 @ 4:25am

Awesome - one of my favorites. Simple but polished. Nice beatbox acapella soundtrack. And interesting gameplay mechanic - took me a lot of tries to get the particles (hard to exit orbit at the right time) but eventually got all but one (I think).

Law says ...
Apr 27, 2012 @ 11:10am

It's quite fun, though I think one of the things that really buzzed at my mind was just how difficult it was to control yourself when trying to orbit.

Still though, it's quite good.

raarlac says ...
Apr 27, 2012 @ 2:55pm

Awesome game!! one of the best ideas in this LD :D music made me turn off the headphone though

summaky says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 9:24am

As awesome as the music is, I don't really think that is appropriate for this game. I also loved the art style and the mechanics.

bitslap_ says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 12:29pm

Cool and different. Good music.

Hegemege says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 1:06pm

Liked the graphics, but for some reason found the music a bit irritating at times :/ Good work though in putting it together!

It was a wee bit too short, and slightly too slow-paced to my taste, but I liked the clear graphical style a lot! This could turn into something nice if you decide to put more work to it :)

Jiggawatt says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 2:23pm

Lovely progression here.

Vilborg says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 10:41pm

The controls were a bit weird - using horizontal/vertical directions for a planet that is more angle/velocity makes it hard to get motion right. Other than that, a fantastic game.

R3ason says ...
Apr 30, 2012 @ 3:34am

Great idea! Was a bit hard at first to get controls down, but it cleared up as time went on. Music was fantastic! Thanks!

BubuIIC says ...
Apr 30, 2012 @ 6:47pm

This is hard! I didn't get very far, but the concept and presentation are nice! Interesting music ;-)

netmute says ...
May 1, 2012 @ 7:42pm

This was awesome! Great simple art style, clever physics and hilarious music.

Ryusui says ...
May 2, 2012 @ 6:23am

Looks good, love the "a capella" soundtrack, but the gameplay is a bit frustrating for my taste.

ratboy2713 says ...
May 2, 2012 @ 3:17pm

love the music and the orbitting mechanic.

Hume says ...
May 8, 2012 @ 2:36am

Should I complain because your gravity is actually not intuitive because real gravity doesn't work like that? Naah. Not reasonable. But I think it made the game harder for some people than it really is. Just FYI.

JonathanG says ...
May 14, 2012 @ 12:07am

This is a lot of fun! The graphics are simple but well polished, and the audio is funny :) I like how the title screen is integrated with the rest of the game. The physics take a while to get used to, it's very easy to fly into space by mistake. Also at the end of the game, you can keep pressing Enter and more and more atmospheres surround the tiny world :P
