Mighty Milky Way screens and facts revealed

When I first posted about this game, I was without even one screenshot to show you. That forced me to create some mildly embarrassing fan art for Mighty Milky Way. Luckily for me, the guys at WayForward appreciated the effort, and granted me an interview and some exclusive pre-production artwork, which I’ll be sharing with you tomorrow afternoon.

In the meantime, check out this fact sheet and these official screens. I don’t know about you, but I’m more in love with the game than ever. The screenshots look amazing, but that was to be expected. It’s the promise of a J-Pop ballad, some double rainbows, and “roiling chaos” that has me really pumped.

No, that’s not a typo. “Rolling chaos” is a Katamari thing. “Roiling chaos” is a Mighty Milky Way thing, and it promises to be awesome.

Are you ready to pulse some planets and soar through space? With a pocket full of planet candy and a heart full of ennui, green-skinned cutie-pie Luna needs your help to accomplish her secret mission! Prepare for fever-pitched puzzles in another mighty game from WayForward!

Luna uses her magical staff to create and destroy planets on a whim. Explode vicious space monsters, avoid sizzling electric barriers, and grab all the delicious planet candy you can. But watch out for the T-Rex, Luna’s arch-nemesis! His laser eyes are matched only by the awkwardness of his and Luna’s sketchy past.

But enough incessant blathering! Let’s stare into the sun with stoic tears and embrace the roiling chaos that is life!
