I couldn't find where to go, i see comments of people getting through the game but i can't seem to find a path to anything. The gameplay and music are really cool tho

I absolutely love the soundtrack. Did you compose it yourself?

NicedenGames responds:

Thank you! Yes I always write the music for my games :)

Pretty neat game: I was initially really skeptical of the whole 'cinematic' experience since that's not my jam, but I did like the whole lonely space ambience you built, both graphically, musically, and gameplay-wise with the whole zero-g floating movement, and the asteroids sending everything to pieces was a cool experience. After that, though, I ended up getting lost and couldn't figure out where to go: I thought the floating wrecked hallways were serving as a guide at first, but I ended up looping back to my bed so, yeah, I got lost. I would've kept going to figure out the end, but I got frustrated because of the way you take damage: it seems like the game doesn't factor in speed at all, but just hurts if you slightly touch whatever constitutes a 'damaging debris', which was a let-down. I would've loved if there was some tension where, for example, you're leaking air so you need to go fast, but you need to be careful not to go too fast and bump into stuff. Felt like a missed potential gameplay element there. Anyway, the snails were cute.

The snails were cute.
