This game filled a void in my days and it keeps inspiring me. Simple, elegant and elevating. I wish to try more sets of this game and its hacks.

Passed a lovely evening playing this game. A wonderful way to wind down from a stressful week. A snippet from my honestly over-the-top ship's log:

"Planet Ijira 22: I saw them from atmo, leviathans the size of islands, cutting cleanly through the waves of this watery world. As I grew closer, one raised a  mountain-high fin, and surfaced enough to drawn me in with its storm-dark eye. Though my craft is ill-suited to water landings, I made the trip,  struggled down onto the surface where the waves buffeted me that I might meet their eye with my own. How strange and lovely to find kinship here, with creatures who only resemble me in our matching curiosity for each other."

I'll be travelling again soon, on another night when I need a break from our world. <3

thank you for sharing. I love leviathans of all kinds, and this was really touching!!
