The Calm Of A Dying Sun: Solar Flux

Emergency flares

It's hard to believe, but there are parts of space that aren't full of gigantic ships firing lasers at one another, or heavily armoured marine boarding parties burning gibbering monsters to a crisp. I know it sounds improbable but it's true. Considering the sheer size of the place - the landlord, Ian Space, pays a king's ransom in bedroom tax - it shouldn't be surprising that quiet areas exist, although they do make up less than 1% of the total. Solar Flux is found in one of the calm regions, even though it is about the death of a thousand suns. You can see the salvation of those suns and hear some gentle music below.

Lovely. Solar Flux was originally released on iPad and the PC version will be the new HD release, complete with extra bits and bobs. Here's a look at the Hyperion Galaxy.
