Generate simple planets with Planetoids tool

Planetoids

Hooray! I’ve been keeping an eye on Tom Betts’ Twitter account to see whether Planetoids [Itch.io page] – his planet generation tool – would make it onto the internet instead of just providing lovely screenshots. It has! All praise ProcJam for giving me things to play with.

It’s a tool rather than a game and some of the shapes it spits out are more pleasing than others, but I like using the random button and just seeing what turns up. Some of the planetoids look like microscope visions of viruses but without the symmetry some of those offer, while others do look more like an object a space telescope could pick up.

It’s small but charming. Here are some of Tom’s creations:
