Inside A Star-Filled Sky | £1.02 | Indievania | PC

Did you miss the Pay What You Want launch offer for Inside A Star Filled Sky? Really?! Shame on you! Still, at least you can now pick up Jason Rohrer's beautiful recursive Indie shooter for £1.02 on Indievania. You can read my full review for the baffling details, but suffice to say that Inside A Star-Filled Sky is a truly infinite game. Each powerup, enemy and even the player character is a procedurally-generated level in and of itself... and delving into each layer affects those above it.

Just buy it. Buy it immediately.

Platform: PC

Developer: Jason Rohrer

Inside A Star-Filled Sky hails from the quite remarkable and intensely worrying mind of veteran Indie architect Jason Rohrer. His work includes the hybrid freeform adventure Sleep Is Death, but at first glance, this latest effort seems to be distinctly out of character. In fact, it appears to be mainstream.

The WASD keys guide a small, randomly-generated creature around sprawling mazes whilst the mouse allows firepower to be independently targeted. Just like nearly every other 2D shooter on the market. The art design and music is both soothing and deeply attractive, but after a minute or two, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it hasn't managed to rise above the majority of its peers that glut the crowded genre.

And then everything clicks as you undergo a genuinely startling revelation. Inside A Star-Filled Sky is is a truly infinite game... because every enemy, powerup and even the player character is a procedurally-generated level in itself.

That's right, it's time for another beautiful and innovative indie game to enrich your soul. Inside A Star-Filled Sky is billed as an infinite, recursive, tactical shooter... but the experience itself is far more rewarding, bizarre and ridiculous than I can adequately describe.You can descend into enemies. Into powerups. You'll experience nearly infinite potential for procedurally-generated levels and combinations. It makes no sense- but considering that you can pay what you want, it's high time you invested in this truly unique experience.
