The Idea: Create a Non-Violent Exploration Game Inspired by Science

Please join me on an experimental adventure to see if this game concept can be turned into a fun and interesting experience. My goal is to make something that is relaxing and engrossing and teaches you a little bit of real world science along the way. I hope the experience is rewarding and the music enjoyable. Personally, I just need a break from games where my only way to interact with the world is killing stuff.
