Inside a Star-filled Sky:

Inside a Star-filled Sky is an infinite, recursive, tactical shooter by award-winning designer Jason Rohrer (Passage, Between). What if you could enter an object in a level and find a level inside of it? What if you could enter an object in that level and find another level inside of that?

What if you could change an enemy or a power-up from the inside? What if you could enter and change yourself? What if these levels inside levels inside levels went all the way down---and all the way up?

Inside a Star-filled Sky is a hard, procedurally-generated shmup built around this core concept.

"A beautiful, violent crumb from infinity's table" -- IGN 9/10, Editor's Choice

"Eloquently translates the incomprehensible concept of infinity into game form... Alternately maddening and sublime" -- GamePro 4/5

Blocks That Matter:

When indie game developers Alexey and Markus are in trouble, their only hope comes from their creation.

You are the Tetrobot: a tiny robot that can drill blocks of matter one by one, collect them, and recycle them into new pieces of 4 blocks. You also have the possibility to destroy lines of 8+ blocks in a very «retro russian» game style.

Sand, wood, stone, obsidian, iron, diamond: each matter has its specific behaviour you'll have to use wisely and take advantage of them. So get ready to use your brain and combine your platforming and puzzle-solving skills in this incredible mashup!

Key features:
- A unique gameplay experience mixing puzzle and platform that will challenge your brain
- 40 levels to play in Adventure Mode, 20 bonus levels to unlock and more free content to come
- Collect every 40 "Blocks That Matter" and rediscover videogames made of blocks that made or will make History
- Create and share your own puzzles using an easy-to-use level editor

    IGN Ratings for Inside a Star-Filled Sky (PC)

    Rating (out of 10) Description

    8.0 Presentation
    Sparse and unintrusive. This is a game that rewards players who learn things on their own.

    9.0 Graphics
    Beautifully simple, an arcane approach to blocky pixel design with characters who have just enough detail to stand out.

    9.0 Sound
    A short looping musical piece plays throughout the whole game. It's perfectly suited to the theme--agreeable without becoming a distraction. You could almost listen to it forever.

    8.5 Gameplay
    A rare combination of mechanically satisfying play that is also rich with meaning. Choosing shooting as the main mechanism is predictable and narrows the thematic scope.

    8.5 Lasting Appeal
    You'll either be disappointed by the repetition or else want return to it again and again. In the best case you'll experience both conditions.

    9.0 OVERALL
    Amazing

    IGN Ratings for Blocks That Matter (PC)

    Rating (out of 10) Description

    9.0 Presentation
    Incredible pacing, great humor, and bug-free.

    8.0 Graphics
    The cartoony graphics may not be everyone's cup of tea, but they look great and keep the focus on the puzzles.

    7.5 Sound
    Simple sound effects and a solid soundtrack, like the graphics, keep the focus on the puzzles.

    8.5 Gameplay
    The challenge is pretty high, but that's necessary in a puzzle game. Great controls made even better if you have a gamepad.

    7.5 Lasting Appeal
    Challenging levels will cause you some trial-and-error restarts. Between those and community levels, you probably won't run out of new stages to try.

    8.5 OVERALL
    Great
