Looks great. I remember reading about this game and I also love the art style and music.

It would be nice to know a little bit more on how it plays.

Game Impressions

I really liked the look of this game when it was previewed, love the idea of simply exploring a piece of art.
It took me about 30 seconds to figure out the controls and I was off in search of planets. If my door bell had not rung I still would be totally lost in this game. Very relaxing, excellent music!
I am sure that this game will not appeal to all, but it is a great escape that should not be missed!

Agreed! Insta-buy based soley on the art and the awesome trailer. I have no idea what the gameplay is like though.
