"don't you wish you could shine like the star?" moon.chase.star is a game about a moon who chases the star in hopes of shining like one. Looking for a fun and interactive way to screw with gravity, bounce of dangerous platforms, and shoot yourself flying through space? You've come to the right place, where all sorts of weird stuff can happen in space! WARNING: Some outdated Intel graphics drivers are known to cause issues with the game. The problem is solved by updating to the latest graphics drivers.

Since it didn't look like we were going to get much sales anyways, we wanted as many people to enjoy our games as possible.

So, we've decided to release the game for free!
Now for everyone to download.

I've just submitted a patch that addresses many rendering problems and crashes that many people had been reporting - it should be available for download through Desura in a couple of days.
Can't wait? You can get the .zip archive of the release over here.
A Mac version will be available as soon as I get hold of a Mac to compile the code.

I've also posted a little post about the development of moon.chase.star over on my blog.
If you would like to read more about it, click on the link over here.

Also, the developers of moon.chase.star has started working on our next project.
Something completely different from the fun and playful mood of moon.chase.star, we present "The Box", a short experimental horror game.
Come check us out!

I can't get past the first level without it crashing. Intel drivers are up to date, so I'm at a loss :(

Glad to hear that the game will be updated. Because I only hear the game sound, and the game mentioned in the task bar. But the game itself does not start.

Hi, a patch is up that address the issues that you maybe facing.
Unfortunately it takes some time for Desura to approve them, so in the mean time you could get a zip release from this link:

It runs now without any hiccup. I even got to the third level without any problem.

Copy pasting the activation key provided by the desura installer does not work in the game here, anyone else for whom it does function?

Did you try manually typing the key?

Right now the game has a lot of internal bugs, I'll try to update many of the 3rd party libraries I'm using to the latest version over the weekend.

Sorry about the difficulties.

I dunno if it's just me, but after the first level, the game crashes :S
Also, the activation screen comes every time I start the game. Any help?
I am running Windows 7 64-Bit, Intel GMA 4500MHD (up-to-date)

Hey, sorry to hear that it's not working for you properly.
I'll look into the issue as soon as possible.

For the activation issue, the giveaway was pretty arbitrary and not-well planned.
I'll remove the screens as soon as possible.
Until then, anyone can use the key below to activate the game. (No other DRM than a simple key check is inside.)


Thanks all.
