Can recommend the demo. Maybe later also the game. Which I really miss is something like a "real" card where all the planets I observed are shown (it is hard to remember which symbol means what). Furthermore somethin like hotspots would be very fine to be able to see items a bit faster (at least if wished.... like by pressing space for example):

Loved it, but it's be quite a while since any news from this game has come out, and it has almost been a year. I hope there still working on it.

I absolutely adore this game. It is a cute adventure seeking scavenger game that you have to find different things to help you go from different areas. I can't wait to see when the finish project is here!

Can we have a full release already? I was kinda upset at all the demo-restricted areas. This game looks and feels beautiful. I’ve always loved point-and-click puzzle games, although I'm not good at them. However, except for one part where I refused to read the directions and got lost in space for 20 minutes, I haven't gotten stuck or needed a guide. It’s the perfect amount of difficult that won't have you screaming so loud that your neighbors think you need a hospital. There are a lot of space travel games, but I’ve never seen one like this. I can see the amount of creativity that went into the overall design. I also love how they didn't just say, “Get in the spaceship, where do you want to go?”, but instead let you traverse space. For me, this concept makes me really appreciate the amount of art and fine detail that went into this game. Overall, this game needs a full release as soon as possible.

The endearing tale of a really dumb monkey and a really smart dog. In space. Or at least it will be, when the game is finished. For now, we just have this demo, but like The Old Tree before it, Red Dwarf Games certainly seem to know what they're doing when it comes to fascinatingly odd-but-cute puzzle/adventure games.

Interesting story and planets, fantastic characters, awesome music, and charming graphics which can only be criticised for sometimes making it a tad difficult to tell what you can and can't interact with. Other than that, all signs are that this is going to be a great little adventure game, and there's something strangely gratifying about using the loud, echoing yap of a tiny dog to solve puzzles (which are, thankfully, challenging but never so obscure as to be unsolvable to the average buffoon like yours truly).

Cute but clever.

Verdict: 9/10.

(PS A really important lesson I learned from this demo: Never allow a monkey with a wrench to play an old-school, coin-op arcade game. They don't take kindly to the sight of a "GAME OVER" screen, apparently.)

This is such a really cute and interesting game.
I really enjoyed it and I was very sad, when the demo ends ._.
The graphic is very awesome and I love that handmade drawings.
I'm looking forward to play the full game sometimes.

so hopefully it comes out soon. ;)

This game looks nice! And look at how cute the two characters are! Along with that I like the simple puzzles, but would like to see more musical immersion (the music I like, but often I felt the space travel was a bit long and I wanted some extra sound). Besides that, the demo gave the impression that this is young 'un's game, but can still be appreciated by older folks. Can't wait to see the final product.

This game is great! I'm really sad it was only about an hour-long demo, but to get an hour of this kind of free content is awesome.

I think it is awesome that the game has you simultaneously thinking logically, while also having you think outside of the box in order to overcome some puzzles. The puzzles aren't "bash your head into a wall" difficult, but rather they are more along the lines of "If I look around... if I try things, something will start to make sense."

The two characters you play with work very well together. One serves as your information/narration/hints, the other serves as an extention of your own hand into the world to interact, use, or combine objects.

All in all, I give this demo two thumbs up! Go ahead and check out the demo for yourself. And if you'd like, I'll post my gameplay and impressions video here for people to view at their own leisure. :)

A really cute and interesting game. I love the puzzles (they keep the game interesting as well as challenging), and the quirky humor and characters were easy to love. What I like the most but I feel will go under appreciated is the art style and character design. Main character(s) design made them look super cute and lovable, and the art, combined with the game play type was perfect. The only problem I have with it is the music, but since I'm only a good 40 minutes in, I'm sure it will change. So far, the game is great 10/10.

I can't wait to play the full game. This little demo gives a detailed impression of what we can expect to receive later this year: Good-looking graphics, challenging but logical puzzles, a huge space overworld waiting for you to explore it and two sweet main characters who complement one another quite well.
It took me about 1 hour and you get a message once you have finished the demo version. Try it!

Simple but challenging game. I like it and look forward to seeing the full game. I felt a little lost at first, but started figuring it out before it became frustrating. It looks beautiful too.

This is an amazing game, I was slightly dissapointed when i realised the demo was over. The mechanics are great and I love the art style. A suggestion would be to have the option of keyboard movement? I can't wait for the full game to come out, please can I have it for free? PLLEEEEASE Red Dwarf!!!
