Nice take on the Fishy / flOw style game. I liked that you could determine what was edible by colour. Easy to figure out. After a while it becomes too easy, but that's okay. Would be cool to compete against other galactic whales after you reach a certain size. Nice job!

Awesome game! I agree with what others have said, the sense of scale was really cool but the challenge does drop off after a certain size. I still played long enough to try and eat everything. My favorite experience was realizing I could just "swim" through eating up all the little debris around earth I was once dodging in and out of. Excellent job!

Thanks for your feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the scale progression that's definitely how I wanted people to feel while playing!

Very cool! Sucking up all the little satellites and planets was satisfying. Music was hypnotic and space-y. It was very cool when it zoomed out far enough for me to recognise planets. The sense of scale was great! Very nice job!

Thank you I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Sense of scale was definitely a major theme I wanted to focus on!

I liked this game a lot. But when you grow up there is no more enemies. After a  size, the enemies vanished. Congratulations for the good job.

I'm glad you liked it! Originally there were larger enemies but I had to remove them to achieve a stable frame rate. Which is unfortunate because once you get big enough there's not any challenge. But I do think it actually works out thematically since the Galactic Whale is supposed to be super powerful. Thanks for playing and commenting!

Very exciting in the first few minutes! But when I ate all the green balls, I didn't know what to do.

Developer

Thanks for playing! Did you swallow the Earth? Cuz that's the end goal!

Oh, I didn't guess about it! Thanks)

Nice minimalistic game. Got laggy at the first playthrough, but not at the second.

Developer

Yeah that's what I was most worried about. I had to remove a ton of extra planets/asteroids to get the frame rate to be consistently acceptable but since the objects are spawned randomly there's still a chance for it to get really laggy if the objects overlap a bunch. Thanks for playing and commenting!

salut. Bravo pour ton jeu. Il est vraiment très beau, j'adore l'utilisation de formes géométriques simples dans un jeu. Félicitations

Merci! Je suis heureux que vous l'ayez apprécié.
