Hey there! I'm the artist, DCS, hi! (I worked on this game with Arcade Party, I drew the whole thing and helped with coding, story, etc, and I'm usually the one to reply to comments for us!)
We're both very happy to hear you liked the game! The particle affects were something I had a ton of fun with and I just wanted to use them everywhere since I figured hey, alien planet is the perfect setting to finally use this awesome Ren'py feature!
Thanks a ton for playing and thanks a ton for your awesome comment! We really appreciate it!
