    "An abstract game of space exploration, a weird octopus, and tongue-swinging."

    Story of my life.

    It was kind of nifty, especially the music.

    "Its a simulation... of someone`s doped up fantasies probably"

    Not fantasies...feelings.
    Read the little comments by the people on each planet.

    "Leave me alone"
    "I`ll never amount to anything. They all think I`m dumb"

    Ahh the music is very relaxing...


    Each PLANET has a specific problem, the inhabitants are simply effected by it. Each problem requires a sharp eye and a skillful use of your beast`s tongue. Is something effecting the environment? What about the environment itself?

    It`s a bit hard to get used to; the hardest part is understanding that toward the end of a swing, you should press "up" to make getting off the planets easier. Slightly-vague walkthrough to follow.

    Pink planet with underground core: You`ll notice that as you swing from the diamonds without touching the core, the chimes get higher, but reset when you touch the core.

    Yellow planet: Imagine how bad Buzz Aldrin would have felt if he found out we had 4 moons, and he`d only stood on one.

    Water Planet: I bet your octopus is hungry. What do they eat?

    Green Planet: I wonder if moons get upset when you circle around them really fast?

    Return to Earth for a surprise ending.

    odd game...

    Is it just me or did the ending seem basically based on an acid trip? losing touch with reality and basically going insane hahaha
