SPACE WEEK: Stars Over Half Moon Bay

In a slightly more controlled frame of mind, after the sweary action below, Mr Sims, Rod Humble, of course provided us with a space-themed game last year. Stars Over Half Moon Bay is an altogether far more sedate and serene setting, focusing eyes on the stars, and moods on the chilled.

If you've played Humble's previous game, The Marriage, you'll know that his private game development doesn't bear much in common with the day job. While both could be described as "obscure", Stars is possibly a lot more accessible than Marriage, with a more immediately identifiable means of interaction. Explaining the way the game works goes against the ethos of Humble's design, so let's leave it with saying that you're playing with the stars, first dancing with them, then rescuing them, and finally creating with them. Also, it has the loveliest name of all games ever.
