A SOLITARY SUN WAITS IN THE COLD DARKNESS OF SPACE FOR ITS SOLAR SYSTEM
Imagine in the cold, lonely depths of space there’s a sun waiting for the mysterious forces of the cosmos to bring it a solar system. In the new mobile game, Lonely Sun, you have that celestial power of planetary genesis. In fact, you are the guiding hand of gravity. All that stands between you and the fulfillment of a distant sun’s destiny are five unique levels – one for each of the five planets. Every world (Nuriona, Ametho, Neryssa, Isoley and Siroccee) has its own strange landscapes, distinct dangers, and gravitational forces to surmount on your way to building a complete star system.
As a fledgling planet, your main goal is to guide it carefully through the dark recesses of space, collect planet cores from all level stages to gradually grow large enough to orbit the lonely sun at the center of the solar system. However, the odds of new worlds coalescing in the cold danger of space are slim and take time. Be sure to avoid anything that appears dangerous or threatening.
METAPHOR FOR LIFE
Lonely Sun was initially imagined as a metaphor for life, a simplified version of life’s complicated nature, tribulations and hurdles.
Overcoming dangers, navigating through strange worlds, remembering what you’ve gone through, learning as you go… all these are meant to make you resilient. The inevitable nature of failure gives you two choices: pick yourself up and try again or let the memory of your existence fade away.
Accomplishing goals takes time. The cosmic powers of planetary genesis that create the vastness and mystery of space follow the same rules: patience. Patience is the key to creating something beautiful, something worth living for.
One thing you’ll realize: “No checkpoints?” Our response: “Does life have checkpoints?”
