A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Android

Here's our Ludum Dare entry for LD35 :)

Voting link!

Poor little Pluto's been absolutely miserable ever since being demoted to a mere planetoid. O humiliation! O shame!


The entire solar system (accursed Earthlings!) is laughing at you, or so you feel--nay, know, in your sad planetoidary mind.

What will become of you, Pluto? Where will you go?


WHAT TO DO:

Slingshot yourself out of orbit and out into deep space.

Absorb the energies of space junk such as space potatoes, astrocats, the Hubble Space Telescope and both Voyager missions!

Avoid energy-draining waste fired by a legion of strange toupee-headed robots that seem to be polluting the universe with negative energy.

The solar system mocks you.

Take it. It's yours.


CONTROLS:


Left-click+drag with mouse to operate the space slingshot
(Pull back the directional circle in the opposite direction that you want to go! Sounds about ten times more complicated than it is.)

Works even better on a touchscreen, if you have one! Just pull and release.


WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID SO FAR:

'Cool. I destroyed our solar system with no particular motivation :) Good job. :)'
