Space Whale by Mercurial Games

A psychedelic explosion of colour, fish and meta-galactic mammals. Swing through space using the gravity of planets, growing bigger as you eat until you can devour entire galaxies. Orbiting different planets causes different instruments to blend into the music and chomping planetoids plays musical notes with the cosmic cacophony.
