You control the captain of a spaceship that is suddenly struck by a comet and destroyed. With no way to get home, the ship's crew is forced to face reality. They're doomed to die. There's no way out. But no matter what their fate may be, one thing is decided for certain. No one dies alone.

It's your job to navigate through the universe as the captain and reunite your crew. Hop, blast, and drift your way from planet to planet using your trusty jetpack. Reunite the crew, making sure not to run out of oxygen and leave them to drift in the void. Beware of molten planets, speeding comets, and deadly gravity wells. And when everyone in the sector is reunited, make your way to sun.

Praise for Sunburn!

Sunburn! is the debut game from Secret Crush -- a three person studio founded by three alumni of the prestigious NYU Game Center MFA game design program. Originally a student project, the game was then specially selected for three months of full-time development as part of the NYU Game Center incubator in New York City.

I was just thinking of that. I'm pacing very quickly through this game and may even finish it by tonight. I clearly have very little self-control. But I'm also hoping for an endless mode with some random characters to pick up throughout. That would be fun. Overall, I'm thoroughly enjoying this space puzzler as I have expected. Keep up the great work, devs!

exactly... they can implement it however they want... could have to grab air tanks to keep your oxygen supply up while picking up characters. Drop them into little space pods and they can shoot safely back to earth as you continue your trip to save as many people, cats, dogs, lol... as possible. just an idea
