Luna's Wandering Stars is a physics-based planetary puzzler from developer Serenity Forge. Players are challenged to manipulate trajectories, gravity wells, orbital thrusters, and more to collect golden asteroids while avoiding collisions with our solar system's
nine eight planets. This game is available for PC and Mac via Steam.
In this interview, Serenity Forge founder Zhenghua Yang (Z) discusses how Luna's Wandering Stars fulfills his company's mission to change players' lives by challenging how they think; the obstacles to porting the game to mobile or Wii U, and how the company's future games will overcome those barriers; how contracting for outside firms has given Serenity Forge unique opportunities to change the world; and what the indie gaming scene in Boulder, Colorado, is like.
