Start a great adventure and sail away into the sky to find your true love! Soar into the heavens and as far as outer space to touch the stars, balance from cloud to cloud and use momentum to acquire speed so you can zip along at high speeds traveling ever farther and farther. Two tiny stars in the sky, an impossible love affair, a relentless shadow pursuing you : You are the last hope for their union, so they can dance and glow together in the glorious night of their love.

This game features the love shared by two stars, their hopes, and their triumphs. But above all it is a story about you. The way you play the game will affect the behavior of your companion. You can play "competitively" to earn as many points as possible, but you'll probably end up all alone if you aren't taking good care of your relationship or if you remain too independent. On the other hand, if you take great care to stay together or close by one another, you might score lower, but you could try to reunite these two stars and be a part of their nascent love affair. And then you might be rewarded beyond your wildest dreams. So you'll have to be the one to decide. It's all up to you!
