Space Artist is a relaxing (but occasionally tricky) kaleidoscopic pixel art space oddity in which you control an astronaut collecting music for humanity to enjoy.
Controlled entirely with the mouse, you move an astronaut by pointing and clicking in the direction you want to go in. You have to avoid hazards and take into account gravitational pulls of celestial bodies as you try to collect music for earth to enjoy. Thanks to a nifty kaleidoscopic effect there are multiple copies of you at the same time, but as everything is mirrored you only have to worry about moving one (get one astronaut moving correctly and all the rest follow suit).
Although Space Artist doesn’t come straight out and say it, the whole game feels like a tribute to the late (and very great) David Bowie, particularly with the song that the game ends on. Taking just 10 minutes to complete, it’s a beautiful little game, with charming pixel art animation and a wonderfully chilled out soundtrack. A beautiful space oddity well worth embarking on.
