Thanks for the comment. This may be an issue of having a 32bit system. I'm preparing a 32bit version and will upload as soon as possible. Thank you for letting me know!

Bit slow paced but I loved the art style and music.

Great idea, but I gave up after loosing 3 times because I threw away some thing i needed or driving deep away not able to get back. Would have been great if things would be everywhere not just where you're supposed to be. It's hard getting back without some way to turn.

It was unexpectedly challenging. The visuals were very polished asd well. Was fun!

You have to evolve your pile of garbage by selecting what stays on it.

Unfortunately I couldn't run it. It says it's not a valid Win32 application.

WINE doesn't like it, apparently. Maybe because it's 64 bit?

It takes patience to get the feel of the controls. I had some frustrations with it at first. Afterwards, the game was fun for awhile, almost like "Katamari" except you needed important items.

This was pretty fun, and I love the music. I don't really think it has anything to do with evolution, though.

It might be cool if there were a few more items you could pick up. Also, it would be nice if you could move items around once they are on your "ship".

All right. I finally added a 32bit version for windows. Please let me know if it runs + if wine can run it.

Oooh, I like this! Very original style and a gameplay I didn't expect. Nice physics. Not easy for me because I allways end up with a part on the 'front' that bounces the other parts away. Could be enhanced I think, to prolong gameplay. Very promising.

Fun! I got a bit lost first time round, ended up not finding a darn thing then dying in space. But, its a tight concept, is a good take on the concept. It appealed to the sanitation agent in me. Great music too!

Ouch, crashed for me sadly, something with my graphics card being ATI I think.

Woha, very innovative control system! And i really liked how the story and controls are explained.. But maybe it's a little too hard for me control a planet with this system.. Nice game, though!

Enjoyed the general concept though I don't see much connection to the theme. I ran out of time manoeuvring to fit the parts onto my junk (hur hur), almost felt the time limit was a bit harsh. But good work!
