I've gotten some feedback expressing difficulty with collecting the last few stars - and I agree with them entirely. This game is about exploring the environment and hunting down the stars to light up, but I don't want it to be incredibly tedious to reach the ending, either. In light of that, I will be uploading an updated build later on to relax the requirements for seeing the ending (though people who want to collect all of the stars will still be able to).
In the spirit of the game jam, though, I won't edit the game until after the judging period is over (unless that kind of thing is accepted in this jam).
Thank you for all the feedback thus far.
