A sOlitary sun
WAITS in the cOld darkness Of space
fOr its sOlar system
Imagine in the cold, lonely depths of space there’s a sun waiting for the mysterious forces of the cosmos to bring it a solar system. In the new mobile game, Lonely Sun, you have that celestial power of planetary genesis. In fact, you are the guiding hand of gravity.
All that stands between you and the fulfillment of a distant sun’s destiny are five unique, both visually and auditory, hand-crafted levels – one for each of the five planets. Every level has its own strange landscapes, distinct dangers, and gravitational forces to surmount on your way to building a complete star system.
METAPHOR FOR LIFE
Lonely Sun was initially imagined as a metaphor for life, a simplified version of life’s complicated nature, tribulations and hurdles.
Overcoming dangers, navigating through strange worlds, remembering what you’ve gone through, learning as you go… all these are meant to make you resilient. The inevitable nature of failure gives you two choices: pick yourself up and try again or let the memory of your existence fade away.
Accomplishing goals takes time. The cosmic powers of planetary genesis that create the vastness and mystery of space follow the same rules: patience. Patience is the key to creating something beautiful, something worth living for.
One thing we keep hearing from players: “No checkpoints?”
Our response: “Does life have checkpoints?”

five distant worlds
In the cold of the lonely sun’s distant gravitational pull, Isoley has begun to coalesce.
Can you shepherd this nascent planet through the sharp, indifferent ice and into existence?
Forged in burning fire, Nuriona will be the first planet of this new solar system… but only if you can help it on its cosmic journey.
The jagged rocks hurling indiscriminately through space are paradoxically both a danger to the fledgling second planet Ametho, and the very materials its existence depends upon. Can you usher this planet into existence?
The winds of change has come and are focused on the final planet to orbit the lonely sun. While gravity is weak this far from the centre of the solar system, you must be strong to fulfill the fate of this once lonely star.
It’s said that water is the very essence of life. But before life is even a vague possibility, the world of Neryssa must transcend from possibility to planet and become the first water-based satellite to circle the lonely sun.
