The world once shined so bright, we dared to take to the stars.

But we could not stop the darkness that came from within.

In time the light faded, and yet it did not die.

Now, we scour the land, explore its depths.



We were given another chance.

You have come here to find something beautiful.

This was strangely beautiful even as a solo game. Evocative even in its brevity. Winning is sweet but even losing is rewarding. A little world comes to dynamic life for a moment, like a soap bubble.
