About the game:
Stargaze is a stylized VR puzzle adventure game - a narrated fable inspired by dreams of exploring cosmic secrets and traversing whole planets with a far-reaching gaze. 

Assuming the role of an astronomer, the player will research a magical galaxy inspired by The Little Prince’s interstellar travels discovering 7 strange planets full of wonders and fantastic life forms, following a trail of symbols left by some mysterious intellectually advanced entity. 

By manipulating the Telescope the player will be able to not only observe but also influence the events happening in the game and then document them with a photo camera and a research journal.
 
Stargaze's cosmic, otherworldly soundtrack was composed by Thomas Regin - music composer of award-winning adventure games, including the Blackwell series and Unavowed.
