A collection of gas and dust in space with high temperature that usually grows to the point of beginning nuclear fusion and becoming a star.

Protostellar is a 7 day game jam project where you start out as a small little asteroid and consume smaller planetary bodies to grow.

Fight gravity, find targets, grow... Just remember to stay away from the bigger planets!

This game follows the optional theme Cosmic Wonders of Week Sauce (May 2023).

Although the week part of the project has ended, we've decided to make updates as long as there are players interested - have fun playing and don't forget to share your feedback!

A keyboard, mouse or touch screen (web only) is required to play.

Arrow keys or WASD - moves your planetary body
Enter or Space - for UI selection
Shift Enter (web) - F11 (desktop) - toggles fullscreen
Mouse Press - moves towards cursor

To run the game, simply extract the files and start the executable.

Game tested on Windows 10 with Nvidia GTX 690, i5-6400 CPU and 8 GB of RAM.
