Stellar Nursery

by seemo - Jam Entry

Stellar Nursery is about playing with protostars, and evolving them to the point of supernova so that they can release the conditions for life into the galaxy.

We think we might have a very early framework for a pretty cool puzzle game so we'll see where we go with it from here.

Some ideas we are thinking about: different globules that can create inert stars, blackholes, comets, chains, and more interesting layering of audio.

Make sure you can hear the music!

CONTROLS
Click on a star to zoom in to its orbit and click globules to evolve the star. Click again to zoom out.

KNOWN BUGS
Audio is not fading in and out properly for each state.


Made in Unity by @newton64, @marsmodule and @seemo. Feedback welcome.

Very cool mood, love the visuals and the music is perfect.

Have to admit, I didn't really get the core mechanic or what the goals were, if there were any ;)

Thanks! There are definitely no core mechanics, we just ended up dropping in a basic idea before running out of time. I think we'd like to continue to work on it though, and turn it into an actual game.

This idea is great. It'd be nice to see a game like this in completion.

Charming and delightful. Music fits very nicely. There's definitely a great game concept hiding in there somewhere!

Uhh, artsy-fartsy :)

Love the presentation. Nice mood, and it's fun playing around. Too bad there isn't really that much happening afterwards.

Guys, I love this... this... experience. I think is so far to a *game*, but, I like what you do here. Its amazing graphics and atmosphere, music. I think you must be complete this to make an innovative game.

It has an amazing atmosphere and music. If you'd made something out of this gameplay-wise it would've been a top class entry in every way.

Well, yeah seems to be missing a lot on the gameplay side, but the graphics and music are great and the idea certainly has potential
