Great game! Wasteland Guardian won't unlock for me though... :(

Great game! A restart button would be nice though, kind of bummed me out when I had to refresh the entire page and sit through another ad because I messed up and purified an orb.

I have long sought to find a secret brown or greenartifact in the hope of balancing NYX and SOL ...^^ (like the in the level's bottom, the symbol with a green center above the meta-golem is supposed to represent a third force ? thus, it's lacks a lost artefact for really balacing the 6 orbs ? this is the green thing or the brown in the center of the golem ?)
Maybe this is a message that the conflict is inevitable and peace is impossible because it's too late ?

Thus,I think that the "mixed blessing" ending + oasis and desert bloom is the best choice because it does not creat an eternal night or eternal day. (i don't think this is good for the Life on this planet)
It's a shame to don't be able to stop the conflict and NYXians will massacre SOLlians but at least the monstruous machine who can brokes the world's balance is broken; this is "just" a human tragedy and not the end of the planet's Life.
The world already seems a little unbalanced in favor of SOL (It's burns many things) but maybe with the Oasis and Desert Bloom....life will not being so hard; i hope.

I haven't gotten all the achievements yet But I still love your work, and it all started with Endeavor I finished that game countles of times even after getting all the achievements, Good work :)

very original loved the perspective, great job!
