Description
Release date: Winter 2015
You have been stranded 100 light years from Earth, can you survive the long way home?

A Long Way Home is a gravity based physics puzzler. Timing jumps from asteroid to asteroid you must collect enough dark matter to warp to closer to home. You will have to deal with all sorts of hazards on your journey, comets, exploding asteroids, teleporting dark matter and black holes. You are alone in the universe.

You can play a demo of the game here!

The mobile version of the game has gotten some fantastic reviews from well known websites:

"If you're up for patient, thoughtful gameplay that makes for an evocative experience, you should give A Long Way Home a shot." - Touch Arcade (4/5)

"Overall, I can’t recommend this enough for fans of slower, more thoughtful games and anyone who wants to play something that will livelong in the memory. A lonely, haunting yet uplifting experience that will hook you in until you have lost hours to the epic journey of a little spaceman." - appaddict (4.5/5)

"Only a handful of games can produce an emotional response, as A Long Way Home did for me. I hope it can do the same for you." - appolicious

@katzbird thanks for the comments, I am going through and giving the entire game a once over for the (hopefully) steam release. I don't want this to scream "PORT", i want it to stand on it's own.
As far as the restart button, i should have made it more clear, if you hit M to bring up the menu (in the instructions below the demo), you have a restart, pause and exit button.

Not a bad game, but not one I'd buy. I played the demo, and there were a few problems. I don't feel like writing an essay on them because there is one easy fix. A RESART BUTTON. I messed up a lot, and realized it the moment I jumped from the asteroid, but I had to wait for the astronaut to slowly drift off the screen before I could try again. It adds some atmosphere, but detracts from the game. Good atmosphere (like your hypnotic music) does not distract from gameplay, it inhances it. Waiting to play the game whenever I mess up, does.
Another thing I'd like to point out is that since this is a mobile port, try to do something slightly different for the pc release. There are a lot of physics-based puzzle games, so don't just recreate your mobile game, use it as a platform to make something better.
I do not dislike this game. I'm not going to upvote it, but I'm not going to downvote it either. I hope I end up seeing this on steam; you certainly put a lot of thought and effort into this.
