I don't know what to do now
Okay so I have been playing this game for little more than an hour and I really haven't got a single clue on what in the world I have to do. I might know a bit about the ship and I have tried to play A and B by flipping the disk and moving the input thingy to the right and left slot. The only real thing I have acheived in this game is playing the tutorial. Then play the B I think, and from there I have gotten nothing. I have seriously from the beginning been playing the same A and B for an hour and they are the complete same on the few different planets I beleive I warped to or whatever.

I just want a little hint or tip on what to try out. I really don't want to waste another hour just playing the same exact thing over and over again.

Part of the game is figuring out what to do. Just be patient. It takes a while.

There are a certain number of planets you have to visit before you can pass to the next season. Try every control in the ship and see what they do, be systematic. Try them in different combinations.

The planets are not the same. Each has a different set of buildings and a different way you solve it. Some are really short, some very long. Make sure you really warped to a different system.

If it feels like a "waste", maybe this isn't the game for you. The entire game is a puzzle. Figuring out *how* to play the game is part of that puzzle.

I like the game. I just don't like the feeling of having played the exact same puzzles with the exact same buildings for more than an hour. I feel like I have tried everything, which of course I know I havn't. I just asked for a little advice or a tip to help me further in the game. I don't want you to spoil it completely, I just want a hint if that is possible without spoiling it all. I just tried different planets and they all had the exact same puzzle. I moved the sight/screen/view or whatever to a planet and I pushed something and it seemed like my ship (or whatever it is) was moving towards the planet and after that I just played the exact same "A" and "B". Maybe I should start a new game? or should I just continue to play different planets?.

I wouldn't say that I am just made for this game, but I know I like different games. I have played my fair share of indie games and I like how they are different. I also like to play more casual games but this is one of the games I play in between, like a break to do something else. I am not mad for playing the game at all, I just played the same thing long enough to think I was doing something wrong.

Well, I searched first "own" world for 20 min and found nothing at all. If it weren't for the expactations I would have already left...

But what about now? did you figure everything out?

So every planet is a puzzle, but on some planets there are trails, which are the inverted triangles trains that make a very harsh repetitive sound. You can follow them whenever they are present.

As for the ship console, its a very simple mechanic. So after completeing a star and naming , the cartridge automatically moves to the right slot and locks in place (greys out). What this does is power the navigation systems. Now;

Play with the three navigational controls on the right hand side for a bit, so you can get the hang of them. (there is a button on the bottom right corner, disregard.)
you should find that one control moves the crosshair on the monitor on a flat axis, the triangle control under it moves the view of the monitor on a 3rd dimensional axis, and the lever that is closer to the center might not do anything. The lever only works when you are targeting a planet, and once you pull the lever with a planet targeted, the entire control console zooms out. This also causes a dotted line to appear on the monitor, coming from the targeted planet. This dotted line ends in a diamond. What you have to do then is use the two navigational controls to get the dotted line to center with the planet in your crosshairs.

Once you do that, wait. Underneath the cartridge, there is a bar, and it might be black. This is a loading bar, essentially. It should fill up in time, whether it takes a couple of second or minutes. Once the bar fills, the cartridge will automatically move to the other dock, allowing you to visit the planet.

Hope this made sense!
