when i first started playing it felt like a stretched out and pleasurable version of that sensation of falling when sleeping and even gave me a little motion sickness but then it turned into a really meditative thing like i was laying on my back in the sea, i'm really into it <3

Thanks so much! I wanted to capture how it feels to fall asleep. Great to learn how the experience evolved for you and that you had a peaceful time.

really nice. I love the textures on the planets, somehow pixel-y and painterly, liquified and evocative 🤓

Thanks for the thoughtful words!

This is really lovely to just kick back & enjoy the drift! Definitely reminds me of some weird distortions I've had on the backs of my eyelids when I'm nodding off and back on again, lol :) you nailed it!

Thank you! This comment was really good to read <3 I appreciate it!
