Weird.

I guess my two questions are: do you have direct control over flying? And are the levels and/or music procedurally generated?

Hi there, developer here. The answers to your questions are yes and yes! Thank you for your interest! (and yes it's a very weird game!)

Quite a noticeable uptick in quality releases this week, good news. But I sincerely hope that this little gem doesn't get left in the dust of the standard Thursday release stampede.

Of all the quality releases this week that I'll pick up, this is easily the one I'm most looking forward to. Very much a game made for someone like me. I can't wait to experience all that... Awesomething.

Are there goals and objectives or do you simply fly around. It has the look of a (albeit very cool) toy rather than a game.

This is really lovely. Such a nice flow to it, really tight controls and trippy visuals. I had no idea what I was doing at first but read the help and all makes sense now.

You do have full control, like a very responsive jet fighter. Tilt to yaw, bank, turn etc and tap to thrust.

Idea is to go 'down' as deep as you can (for points, more points for going faster) but finding a safe route and even just orientating yourself to know which way IS even down, is the thrill. (Hint: mushrooms point up).

There are upgrades to buy or save for like better handling, more speed, heavier gravity and more.

Really nothing like it - such a creepy universe to fly around in with some fabulous organic shapes, stunning lighting, and smooth as silk frame rate on my mini!

Sorry, maybe it's just me, but I can't figure out what the heck I am looking at. What am I doing here? Flying? The video for some reason didn't show me what's really going on here! Help! Just weird! Is this nothing but a tech demo, or a real game of sorts?
