CriteriaRankScore*Raw Score
Technical Implementation#1633.0003.000

Ranked from 19 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your game utilize the limitation and theme?
This is an idle game, so the Collectable aspect is taken to an extreme being the driving force of the game (you gain stuff over time in a semi-passive way). And the theme of There and back, without spoiling too much, is used as a narrative device. You start as a god in a universe with nothing in it, and you'll have to return it to that state at some point.

Really cool and atmospheric game! I just wonder why 70 atoms are able to form a sun xD. This game is not sientifically correct.

Also could you check out my game? It'd be cool from ya.


LOVED IT! this is so fun and unique, what a cool idea! good job!

it'll be nice if you check our game too (:


the most chill game of the Jam that I've played so far, I love how the there and back was implemented

I'm a fan of clicker games and i believe this one needs some balancing :)) Oh and i also found some hidden stuff 

 I really liked it tho! :D


You are totally right, I focussed on making it quick for everyone to test out. 

And I didn't make it Fullscreen proof eheh  Thanks, and I love that screenshot !

Love the game! I remember playing Candy Box 1 and 2 way back when, and the way you just wait reminds me a lot of it! I also love that effect throwing atoms away has, with the universe slowly lighting up! I'm not sure who the face is on the top right, but that was a pleasant surprise LMAO. Other than that, it's definitely super relaxing and worth a play! If you have the time, I'd appreciate it if you also checked my game out!

EDIT: I just realized you can click on the face, super cool secret


Thanks I love the candy box games ! This is actually ma face in the corner, giving myself a big god-creator role.  

I'll definitely give yours a play, thanks again !


Nice chill and relaxing little game, found myself just sitting there spamming planets for way longer than I expected!


Very relaxing, nice atmosphere. Loved the GodMaker screen and secret stats.


Thanks a lot !


It's a nice and relaxing experience, but for me creating planets didn't work. At least I couldn't see any appearing on my screen. I think they still boosted my stats though.


Very cool! I know idle games get a bad rep in the gaming community but I think they're great. I've killed many many hours clicking cookies, chickens and wizards in my day. 


I enjoyed the music, relaxed atmosphere, and the over all idea.

I did however immediately find out that planets don't increase in price when you buy them, so I spammed them until my iteration time was 0.033 seconds, and so after just a couple minutes of play I had beaten the game.

Not to mention the text showing up on the left part of my screen, I sent you a picture in discord.

All in all:
Style and idea good. The mechanics need to be balanced.


I shall now go play other fun games and create meaningful things! Definitely enjoyed being a God, lovely little experience. Ended up with a bug where I think I was getting a galaxy's worth of atoms per nanosecond, but that might just be a feature of how universes actually work. Keeping it 'to scale', I suppose.

Great stuff. 


A lovely and relaxing game.  Enjoyed the music and the concept!  Where did you get that title font?!  
I saw someone else broke the game when they spammed the sun and planet buttons, like I did.  I actually didn't mind, though, because it was fun to fill the whole space with those very pretty galaxies.  A nice existential ending as well.

If you have a few minutes to spare, please check out our game too :)


Very short. I throw 10 atoms into space a bunch of times then clicked the guys face and had some fun playing around with the menu and dialogue.. I guess I choose you as I clicked the game link :)


Very good! Nice, relaxing, short, to name a few. Love the existential stuff at the end!


Thanks those were the points I tried to hit :)


Really love the concept ! Relaxing and limitless !


Gj Love The Mood 




Super relaxing to sit down and play and you have a super interesting concept for an idle game! well done man :)

It would be great if you could check out my jam submission if you ever get chance! :)


Thanks so much ! I'll make sure to check that !
